Blind Surfer Surfs Wave Garden

Basque surfer, Aitor ‘Gallo’ Francesena, 44, who is blind, recently tested the waves at Wavegarden’s headquarters in north Spain. In a truly touching moment, this was the first occasion a blind person has surfed in the lagoon, attesting to the level of safety and security for end-users and highlighting a small part of the potential of Surf Parks and Wave Pools to spread the benefits of surfing to wider populations who today do not have access to the sport.
