The coast from Crashboat Beach to Surfers Beach at Aguadilla has been selected as the 11th World Surfing Reserve. Punta Borinquen is the first World Surfing Reserve in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.
Olita, a Puerto Rican brand that works to deviate families from the poverty cycle, recruited and organized a team of experts in the fields of each selection criterion. This interdisciplinary team formed as the Local Stewardship Council (Comité Timón), and consists of professors, students, local entities, NGO’s and local veterans of the surf and outdoor industries.
The LSC’s job was to create the most complete and profound application for the WSR, which they submitted in September 30th, 2018. By mid-November the team was notified that it was selected as the 2019 World Surfing Reserve.
The LSC was congratulated for submitting one of the most impressive applications Save the Waves have received so far.
