Surf Shop “Full Speed” Owner/Sendai Surf Shop Union Chairperson

Soichi Sawachi is the owner of surf shop "Full Speed" and the Sendai Surf Shop Union chair person.

"I was at the surf shop, which is a five-minute drive from the beach, when the earthquake struck. Although I was witness to the earthquake and the tsunami said to be the worst in a thousand years, I think that I will continue to be connected to the sea in the future. Without becoming pessimistic, I want to create a better environment for surfing and live a forward-looking life. I hope that future generations will be able to deal with the sea better. "
