What we need to run a Waves for Change site
There are currently five Surf Therapy sites in South Africa with a centralised support and training hub in Cape Town.
40 coaches are trained as Surf Therapy Mentors.
Our Surf Mentors cannot carry childrens’ stories alone.
Through policies, practice and a dedicated team, children are kept safe.
Gets kids safely to the beach from their communities, and home again
Each site needs at least 30 soft boards and 20 hard boards to be able to run a Surf Therapy session
140 children’s wetsuits are needed per year while Surf Mentors receive their own personal wetsuit
Each participant surfer receives a nutritional meal.
