How Climbing and Surfing Began in Cuba
The Future of These Sports
Top suggestions for visiting Cuba in search of adventure:
4. Bring donations and gear up. All things surf and climbing are needed in Cuba. There is a shortage of gear, so don't expect to buy anything there. Be prepared to leave behind (if possible) your surfboard, leash, wax, fins, harness, shoes, ropes, carabineers. If at all possible, bring new gear to donate. Simond products are super affordable, durable and will get a lot of use from the local community. I make sure to bring an extra harness and shoes every time I go.
