Due to the boom that this sport has had in the west, the activities and all the development that has been generated in this city thanks to this important sport, and in the interest of awakening greater interest and focus as a center of surfing in Puerto Rico, we present this initiative, “said Perez Cordero, president of the House Commission of Recreation and Sports.
