Welcome to Waves For Change
Surf Therapy for Violent Communities
Waves for Change is an international award winning surf therapy and community building organisation that operates in communities that experience high levels of violence and poverty – where the sport of surfing has never existed.
We help children and young adults effected by emotional and psychological trauma develop the coping skills and emotional resilience they need to transition to stable futures.
In communities that are heavily under-resourced to meet the emotional needs of the most vulnerable, we increase access to services that promote well-being by training local community members to provide therapy and surf programming, introducing vital new skills sets and job opportunities.
