10 Years of WAVES
Education & The Infrastructure for Giving Back
2018 is our 10th year of programs. We're thrilled to have made it this far, and with your help we can tap into even more opportunity and continue to change lives using surfing as a tool. Raised funds will go to supporting educational programming in Peru. You can make a difference for our Global Center for Surf Community Enhancement in three areas - Staff, Supplies and creating an Inviting Space.
Learn about the key players on our team in Lobitos who will benefit from this campaign. Your donation will go towards fueling their salaries for the new year to continue to offer community classes, workshops, and make WAVES happen.
