Grassroots: growing world-class talent at home
“Good Vibes Only” is the banner message of the Mexilogfest website, a headline befitting a global audience eager to fight the doldrums of pandemic fatigue. Where did the last two years go? For Roger and the rest of the Philippine National Surfing Team, no time was wasted as rigorous surf training still prevailed in their daily routines.
The United Philippine Surfing Association (UPSA) started the Pilipinas Surfing Grassroots Development Program to better prepare the next generation of local surfers by teaming them up with current Philippine Team players and coaches as they exchanged exercise drills and participated in structured surf video analysis sessions.
The program includes a mobile training camp called the Grassroots Caravan, where Philippine Team members like Roger can go around different surfing communities to train with surfers from all over the country. The professional level of surf training has already reached the northern surf towns of La Union, Baler, and Cabugao while the Siargao and Samar teams have spearheaded training units in the south.
Aside from improving each surfer’s skills, the Grassroots Development Program also aims to train more confident and formidable competitors by leaving them with technical surf competition knowledge and experience.
What other international surfing competitions will our Philippine Surfing Team join this year? Stay tuned for updates!
