Surf Education Volunteer


They teach local youth through surfing. These children do not have the opportunity to take part in any recreational activities due to parents having very little income.

As a volunteer, you will actively take part in assisting the children with lessons and other crucial aspects of their development.

The key is to encourage the children to take up surfing as a sport and to stay away from negative elements such as gangs, alcohol, and/or drug abuse.
