Surfers against violence against women — empowering women with equal rights and opportunities.
The development of surfing in PNG has become a powerful example of how constraint inspires creativity, and how great necessity and a lack of resources can become an ideal breeding ground for innovation. PNG’s surfing community, under the leadership of the Surfing Association of Papua New Guinea (SAPNG) and its President & Co-Founder, Andrew C. Abel,ML has put the horse before the cart so to speak.
In terms of surfing, PNG is at the cutting edge. Their approach ensures both an equitable and sustainable foundation, developing surfing as a national resource. In turn this will benefit not only the local communities and traditional resource custodians, but also SAPNG-affiliated surf clubs and commercial operators.
