The team has received recognition and support from the State of Quintana Roo in the form of uniforms and other branded gear. A portion of the funds required for airfare, accommodation and other related travel expenses were raised by the kids themselves. The Nohoch Surf Team has received great interest and support from the community which is just one of the many reasons to love Puerto Aventuras!
