Sponsors needed for surfers

The Dominican Surf Federation has not been able to secure sponsorship for their team to represent the country in the Pan American Surf Games to be held in Peru in January 2006. With the deadline approaching, the surfers who won the right to represent the country in the grueling national competitions held throughout 2005, may have to stay at home, despite being in great shape to be one of the favorites at the Pan American Games. All donations towards the team’s trip are appreciated. The Puerto Plata Surf Association is going public with the problem, because most of the best surfers are from Puerto Plata. For more information and to help the surfers, contact Ricardo Ripoll, Phillip Lehman or Christin Birkhan at aspp2@hotmail.com
