The sport of surfing remains relatively unknown in Haiti. The organizers of Surf Haiti are trying to change that. They run a surf commune in the southern coast of Haiti at Jacmel. By raising domestic awareness of surfing through lessons and education, these surfers hope to build momentum for Haiti to submit a surfing bid to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, where surfing will debut as an Olympic event.
