I'm Tatiana Howard from island of Maui, Hawaii. I grew up around the ocean my whole life and love everything about it. I love to enjoy all it has to offer like surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, and stand up paddling, as well as spreading awareness on how we can respect the ocean. I founded The Butterfly Effect with a friend in 2007 on Maui and 9 years later it has landed in 18 countries with over 30 events with thousands of participants and succesful fundraising efforts for charities world wide. It is the first time The Butterfly Effect will be in Portugal. The Butterfly Effect Portugal will be a Surf and Yoga week. It will be an opportunity to get people out surfing for the first time and I will be there giving tips for the intermediate and advance riders as well. The trip will be balanced with yoga, hikes, and other land activities that Portugal has to offer.
June 21st is summer solstice in Hawaii where The Butterfly Effect first began! It is a time to celebrate and shine with the longest day of the year. We want to celebrate this day worldwide with our “Butterflies” of all ages, levels, and sports. Your choice! Your passion! Your Aloha session! Enjoy an activity session together and fill up on that ALOHA spirit!
How to participate: Register before June 1st, set a meeting location for you and your friends to meet up on June 21st, choose a course to paddle, a location to surf, a patio to do yoga, studio to dance, or a street to skateboard!
Entry will include your BE Aloha Goodie-bag with participation details, supplies, and a few surprises from Hawaii!
During the Butterfly Effect Week videos and photos are taken. The event video will be published online e.g. at www.betheeffect.com.
Photos will be available for you.
