In 2012, Cross Culture Surf brought together 30 young people aged 14-17 from Ireland and the Basque Country. First they met in Lahinch (Ireland) over Easter and then in Zarautz (Basque Country) in August. They got a taste of each other’s cultures in a dynamic and fun learning environment.
Activities included daily surf lessons, cultural identity workshops, team building challenges and excursions.
