On the 15th of October, 2023, the Student Association of International Programs at NSYSU hosted a thrilling activity for IBMBA and GHRM students. The primary aim of this event was to promote physical activity, which the Student Association deems crucial for a healthy lifestyle. Watersports events like this offer students not only relaxation but also an enjoyable way to connect with classmates.

However, there was an unexpected twist.

The initial plan was to have everyone try SUP and Kayaking, but due to strong waves, the organizers had to switch to plan B: body surfing.
