The ReSurf Project

ReSurf is restoring life and passion to underprivileged children through surfing.

Resurf mentorship programs have proven that Surfing, unlike any other sport has the power to change a life.  Surfing is a challenging sport that requires focus, discipline and drive. You simply cannot just paddle out and stand up on a board.  It takes commitment, persistence and the passion to succeed. For many underprivileged children these simple but invaluable life lessons have unfortunately never been taught. Resurf programs provide children with the necessary tools to lead a positive and productive life.  

Working with children from public schools, local community centers and religious institutions; Resurf programs refurbish donated surf boards, uniquely decorate them with the help of local artists, teach surfing and set up surf clubs. These surf clubs are maintained by our staff and eventually run by the local participating children as a continuing program for future generations. 

To date over 150 children have participated in Resurf programs around the world. Our goal is to positively change the lives of as many children as there are surfboards.
