Heya, my name is Dew Promchareon, a 20-year-old girl with a deep passion for surf from Thailand. I've been fortunate enough to have been invited to Mexi Log Fest 2021 as a nobody but unfortunately, the fees to get to Mexico from Thailand is incredibly large. Thailand itself still does not have a large enough surf culture to support such travels, which is why I want to go abroad, get the opportunity to learn, grow, be inspired and promote my country's, small but with so much growth potential, surf culture.
The cheapest available flight right now costs approximately 70,000 Thai baht (1800GBP), so I had set that as my minimum. Things get more expensive due to Thailand's entry requirements with strict Covid-19 testing requirements and payment for accommodation during my state quarantine.
It has been my biggest dream ever to surf competitively around my idols, and since Mexi Log Fest is an invite-only event, it makes this opportunity that much more special.
Any small contribution would mean that world and I'd be forever grateful for any support given in helping me follow my heart and reach my dreams.
