It also offers mentorship, job creation, skills development, and holistic support to vulnerable youth and their families.
Surfing is used as a form of therapy and empowerment which allows us to engage vulnerable children in wholesome structured programmes,and encourages healthy lifestyles & positive coping mechanisms. It also instills a love and respect for the ocean.
