We have the privilege of travelling to some of the most special places in the world in search of perfect waves and experiences that will be remembered for a lifetime.
As an organization, we have an environmental and social commitment to leave those places better than we found. In a few weeks, we are heading down to Chicama, an underprivileged beach town in Northern Peru that happens to have one of the longest waves in the world.
Our host Larry Cavero connected us with a local surf instructor who runs a surf school for local kids in need. The program offers them a healthy way of living—keeping trouble away—as well as an opportunity to train and take part in local and international competitions.
As we know, surfing in cold water requires equipment, and most of these kids don't have access to equipment. We are asking our community for donations for the following items so we can bring down with us:
- Used wetsuits, neoprene jackets and rash guards
- Used board shorts
- Used fins and leashes
- Used shoes and flip flops
- And school supplies
Donations can be dropped off at the shop. We are planning a full day with the kids to surf, clean the beach and deliver everyone's donations in person. Thanks in advance for helping us make a difference!
