Waves For Change
A look at the non-profit that's helping a group of kids in Africa stay off the streets and in the surf.

In 2011, Waves for Change introduced a previously non-existent surf culture to Masiphumelele and nearby Monwabisi Beach, two communities desperately in need of a structured and safe distraction from the ugliness and neglect surrounding local youth. The non-profit created beachside safe hubs, training local community members to recruit and engage high-risk kids in informal surf schools.

The non-profit has continued to grow and effect the lives of more and more youth. Below is an interactive video that outlines Waves for Change's mission and positive influence on these communities.
