Proceeds to benefit Balikbayod—Returning Wave, a surfboard sharing project promoting education around the world. We repair and ship gently used (and new) surfboards to places like Siargao, Philippines where kids learn to surf and share boards in our surfboard 'library' as an incentive and reward for staying in school.
About Balikbayod—Returning Wave
An after school youth surf sharing program promoting education first in the Philippines and other countries with evolving international surf towns. We are a project of The San Francisco Filipino Cultural Center, a non-profit organization in the USA. Balikbayod offers youth incentive to stay in school by sharing surfboards for youth to borrow. A local surf leader runs each youth program together with the teachers of the communities.
