Sylvester’s dream is to surf the best surf spots in the Philippines. It came true with the help of the Philippine surfing community connected through social media. I-Connect TV host and PSA surf coach Paolo Soler saw Sylverster ripping the waves of Magic Left a couple of months ago. Paolo was amazed by his skills in handling waves double his size and decided to bring Sylvester to Calicoan island to compete for the 8th Guiuan National Surfing Competition.
Here’s is the featured video of Sylvester Bactad on I-Connect.
Through Paolo Soler’s Facebook message asking for support in the surfing community, we were able to have enough budget to fly Sylvester and his guardian Reynald Liwarin to Guiuan.
