Empowering youth by
partnering with the communities and schools at the locations we surf in.
Returning Wave creates after-school surfing programs that keep the children in
school by offering the incentive of free surfing lessons, and access to
surfboards. Returning Wave empowers youth through the love of surfing. Our goal is to travel responsibly as surfers and as
tourists, and give back to the international communities we
visit by surfing with the local children
and teaching workshops in the arts and surf trades. You do not have to be a surfer to volunteer with us.
