Way out on the split ends of surfing's fringe, exists an anachronistic little wooden surfboard company where quality, respect for our roots and a belief in the sanctity of nature are cornerstones.


Here we build wooden surfboards that are inspired by the intuited hydronamic genius of the ancient Hawaiian board builders. Handcrafted, Wawa boards allow for a wave sliding experience that, until recently, lay buried in the dust of museums. A surfing experience of profound purity and unbridled, utterly gratuitous, fun.

Surfpop aims to create long-lasting opportunities for children and youth from disadvantaged communities around Cape Town through a powerful formula of surfing, education and nutrition

Surfing promotes the physical and mental wellbeing of the children, and combined with focused after-school education and nutritious meals, improves their school performance, prepares them for sustainable employment and promotes their role as ambassadors in their communities for living a healthy life in touch with nature.


9Miles Project is a registered non-profit organisation that was founded in Cape Town in 2013. The project works with youth in coastal informal settlements and provides mentorship and support to the at-risk youth in the areas of Cape Town, Elands Bay, and St Francis Bay.

With Headquarters at Strandfontein Pavilion, Cape Town, the project is a haven and refuge for youth who have very few positive role models in their lives.


"The Surfer Kids" is a registered Trust and Non-Profit Organization.

Our Mission Statement is:

​"The empowerment of marginalized and impoverished youths through  character building activities that teach commitment and dedication" Our primary medium for achieving this objective is surfing.
