Traditionally the ocean has been taboo for it’s powerful waves and danger, and girls even more so due to cultural traditions. Surfing brings empowerment and even financial opportunity to this region where many of the members of Bangladesh surf club are from disadvantaged circumstances. There is no cost to volunteer with the Bangladesh Surf Club, but volunteers must pay their own hotel/accommodation. Also surfaris and board rental must be paid for.
