Luxolo, Mentor, Waves for Change
Waves for change taught me to be independent and have hope for tomorrow. If I fall I know that I can rise again. Life is full of challenges, but I should not give up!

I thought W4C was about surfing, not knowing it’s a life changing opportunity. It isn’t about the kids only, it’s about everyone, coaches, kids and bringing back to the community.
Nkuja, Mentor, Waves for Change
When I first learned to stand on a surfboard, I felt like I was on top of the world because I am walking on water. I ended up taking surfing as my coping skill because every time I am in the water, I take the waves as the obstacles that I go through.
Fura, Mentor, Waves for Change
Waves for Change had a big role in facilitating racial inclusion and diversity at the beach. When I started surfing as a child, there were hardly any black people, and it was mostly men. Now, everyone surfs, especially women. Words that describe W4C for me – Freedom. Peace. Love. Care.

Much like a butterfly changing is inevitable, Waves for Change has allowed me to break free from my cocoon and hatch into a beautiful butterfly with new skills for wings and qualities for antennas.
