Join the Surfpop Tribe!
The Surfpop Tribe is our global community who share and support our dream by contributing monthly, so that we can introduce more children and youth to the healing power of the ocean, empowering them through our proven formula of surfing, education and nutrition, thereby creating real future opportunities for them.
Creating real opportunities
Ayanda, or Ace, grew up in Masiphumelele township in South Africa. Ace joined Surfpop six years ago as a beneficiary. He is the first Surfpop graduate. When he turned 18 years at the end of 2019, Surfpop offered him a job as assistant surf coach. He has not only proven to be a good coach, but plays an invaluable role in all program activities. As the star of our Surfpop team, he shows the other Surfpop children that anything is possible!
Asenako is 17 years old and our oldest girl in the program. She joined Surfpop more than four years ago. Surfing makes her feel free and helps her deal with challenges in life. Through Surfpop she got a bursary to go to college, where she is now completing her secondary education, while obtaining a degree in Hospitality Management. Just like Ace, Asenako is a role model for our Surfpop children and encourages them to dream big.
Our growing Surfpop Tribe!
It has been incredible to see our Surfpop Tribe grow with members from all over the world. With the support of our tribe members we have already been able to give three more children from Masiphumelele township, who are in foster care or incredibly challenging home situations, the opportunity to join our program!
With 9 tribe members, 1 child can join Surfpop!
