Now I’m aware that I haven’t updated the blog in the last week of kitesurfing and there is some interest to hear the rest of the story. The blogs are written and there are some interesting moments especially in the last 3 days.
So here’s the deal, I really want to help the SurfAid charity as I think they are a fantastic award-winning organisation. They have made a real difference to the lives of people in the Mentawai and Nias islands, off Indonesia’s Sumatran coast.
If you have enjoyed reading the blog, been entertained or think it’s just plain crazy, then it would be fantastic if you could donate some money to SurfAid. You can do this via their website: www.surfaidinternational.org And please write “Louis Tapper” where it asks: How did you hear about us (SurfAid)?
In return I will publish a blog post for each 200 dollars donated. Some of the tales included in these posts include tips on how to fix a kite harness the “Kiwi Number 8 wire” way, and why viewing a GPS device through a condom is not always easy.
I realise there are many other organizations asking for your hard earned money, but I genuinely think SurfAid has a very responsible community development approach and have made a significant, long term difference with the work they have done.
I can also come and talk to groups or organizations about the trip, if a donation is made to the SurfAid charity. It might take me a while to sort through the photos but I certainly have some good stories to tell.
