10 stair backsideflips at communist marble-monuments. Broken decks, a lot of police, selfshaped surfboards. Selfmade gasoline and printer-ink graffiticolors, used in old occupied Russian buildings. Delicious hidden foodstalls. A looot of rice with beans. Rooftops of 14 story buildings where families live in 7 squaremeter rooms. And most of all – many inspiring personal stories. Frank, the guy we stayed with, is not only the best BMX-Rider on the island, he also is one of the best bodyboarders, AND surfers. The guy pulls of backflips on the BMX, reverse aerials with his selfmade surfboard, and pretty much every classic bodyboardtrick known to men in 5 m reefbreaks. He was officialy invited to the Panamerican Surfchampionships of 2009, by the International Olympic Comitee and the Panamerican Surfassociation. But it‘s not that easy. He was denied access to the championship by the Cuban immigration authorities. In fact, he never got to surf outside of Cuba. He doesn‘t even have a sponsor.
