The Butterfly Effect
The Butterfly Effect is in its second year in Cabarete, Puerto Plata. This worldwide movement brings women together for non-competitive ocean sport gatherings in coastal cities all over the world. The aim is to instill self-confidence and a love for the ocean in women of all skill levels. The Butterfly Effect also aims to work with the local community and offer free lessons/clinics for women and children. The Butterfly Effect began in Hawaii in 2007 by water women, Tatiana Howard and Juliana Shelef. Since then Tatiana and/or Juliana have flown to organize the event in Brazil, New Zealand, France, Oregon, Germany, Tahiti, Dominican Republic and Australia for group surf sessions and clinics. This year there will be windsurfing, kiting, stand up paddle, kayaking and laser sailing. Other locations for the Butterfly Effect this year are Hood River (Oregon), Maui (Hawaii), Italy, Brazil and Fiji.
