The coast from Crashboat beach to Surfers beach of the municipality of Aguadilla, Puerto Rico has been selected as the 11th World Surfing Reserve by Save the Waves Coalition, the first World Surfing Reserve of 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.
