The Impact

Returning Wave has been promoting education through the love of surfing since 2008 by providing surf equipment to southern Philippines communities from surfboard donations in the USA. 

Surf to School has been hosting scholastic youth surf competitions in northern Philippines since 2014 by raising money and gifting school supplies and scholarships.

Since our missions were aligned through promoting the importance of education it seemed natural to combine forces to continue our missions throughout the Philippines.
