A simple formula
Gonna.surf. Born out of a passion for surf... and data.
Mehdi El Fadil is the founder of gonna.surf. Passionate surfer, he also has 15 years of experience in using data to provide insights to users. Beyond the technicalities, knowledge management, education and communication are key aspects of the process.
Mehdi and his partners keep using their skills and doing research and innovation, with a focus on surfers' experience and needs.
As surfing is getting more and more popular, Gonna.surf has been created with a mission to keep the sport fun and sustainable.
📍 Gonna.surf is being built from El Cotillo, come say hi if you want :)
Gonna.surf is new, small, does not have much traffic. Why should I bother and support it?
Gonna.surf has demonstrated is ability to do the following, during its pilot project (first semester of 2022):
- Attract an audience of engaged surfers, connected to Fuerteventura.
- Create innovative solutions for surf forecasting.
- Iterate frequently to keep enhancing the product and user experience (42 releases between January and May 2022).
We're working hard on scaling the project up, feel welcome to join in case you want to support our values, and also benefit from it.
Moreover, gonna.surf aims at promoting surf safety and sustainainability, which are values you probably want to associate yourself to.
How can gonna.surf succeed without doing paid advertising / promoted content?
Ads "work", we are not denying that. Our problem with it is that for each client an ad brings you, a few thousand other people have been bothered by an ad not relevant for them (regardless of how 'targeted' the advertising networks pretend they are), flashing on their screen, slowing down or even interrupting their web browsing experience, eating their bandwidth, leaking their private data...
This is why we prefer inbound marketing instead. Here is how we catch the attention of the audience:
- Publish content with a focus on relevance for surfing in Fuerteventura.
- Optimize pages for search engine indexes. Many SEO specialists tend to overlook some basics, we pay attention to some details making a difference.
- Provide a smooth usability to users, and make the content easy to share on their networks.
- Collaborate with the network of local businesses and content producers to grow the community.
Fuerteventura North is already crowded. Won't you bring even more people in here?
Word of mouth, large popular surf forecast websites, and advertisements ran by surf businesses do the damage already. Gonna.surf, a small scale project, is not likely to have any significant impact on the situation.
On the other hand, gonna.surf is actively promoting responsible behaviors, like not getting in the water if a spot is already crowded. A guide about surf etiquette is under creation, educating about safe behaviors in the water, and how not to be a kook.
What about the secret surf spots?
Gonna.surf only shows the well known surf spots, and does not include the secret spots, or advanced local spots.
Wrapping it up!
As we have seen in this page, whether you are a surf camp, surf shop, instructor, yoga teacher or massage therapist, gonna.surf is an opportunity to get more visible towards your clients, while supporting sustainability of Fuerteventura's surf industry.
