ABOUT

OUR MISSION

ReSurf equips community leaders with the necessary tools to reach and inspire their youth. We go to communities that request our program and conduct a weeklong leadership training. During our time in these communities, we help implement our sustainable mentorship model through our ReSurf Clubs. These clubs are run by our staff and eventually taken over by the participants as a continuing program that serves the community and its children for generations.

OUR GOAL

There are many organizations run by some of the most inspirational leaders, all on a mission to help make the world a better place. ReSurf connects with these organizations and community leaders, providing these active and crucial role models with the tools to drive their kids toward a positive and productive life. Through mentorship programs, we encourage kids to stay in school and have a sense of community, giving them the foundation to make better life decisions.

OUR VISION

To date over 500 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.

“It’s great to see what Resurf is doing. If you can share that wonderful feeling that surfers have and give it to someone else it’s great. Its brillant to see that ReSurf is giving these kids the tools the fundamental tools for being stoked.”

THE RESURF CLUB

The ReSurf Club is a way for community leaders to mentor troubled youth and give them a sense of belonging, worth, and community. For many of the children we work with, these simple but invaluable life lessons have never been taught. ReSurf clubs are run in resource centers we build, called ReSurf Shacks. The Shacks store the 15-25 refurbished and decorated surfboards that we donate to the community center. We bring in desks and computers installed with all the latest graphic design and film editing software, as well as film equipment, cameras and Go Pros: all the tools that go with the culture of surfing. We help build confidence in our young leaders through workshops like oceanography, board repair, art, video production, and woodworking. The objective is to challenge and inspire them physically, emotionally, and creatively.
