'Back in June, the folks at Makewild Films alerted us to an interesting reality in the Caribbean island country of Cuba. Surfing is technically not legal there. I hesitate to say illegal, because the minuscule population of Cuban surfers has somehow made a space for itself. But over the years as many Cubans have fled the island attempting to navigate the 90-or-so miles to Key West on all sorts of craft with varying degrees of buoyancy and hydrodynamics, it makes sense that the government would be suspicious of anyone paddling away from the shoreline, God forbid, for recreation."
