Starting in 1984..

One day we saw a pilot surfing by the airport and became captivated by the sport. This gentleman gave us his board, we kept it and even cut it into two pieces to have two boards. When he returned and he found us, he was like wait, my board, what happened?! And we explained, look what happened is that more boys joined us. From two, we had fifteen. - Interview with Chepe Gomez by Moraima Capellán Pichardo at
