Fundraising team
Black Girls Surf supports girls/women whose career goals are competing in the professional surfing. Through, the fundraising efforts we have been able to send athletes to compete and train with professionals to ensure that they are prepared. 

Recently, the International Surfing Association (ISA) announced the inclusion of surfing in the upcoming Tokyo 2020 Olympics. This is not an easy task for many surfers, but we are hoping to reach our goal of sending each participant to all ISA World Games leading up to 2020.

Black Girls Surf is raising funds to send West African, female surfers, Khajdou Sambe (Senegal ) and Kadiatu Kamara (Sierra Leone) to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Both of these young women are the first and only female surfers in their countries. 

Under BGS, they will have an opportunity to train with world-class surfing professionals. Your contribution will assist them in their journey to Olympic greatness.

Donations will cover the following:

1. Passport & Visas
2. Airfare to California
3. Room & Board
4. Equipment  & Board Charges

We will keep you weekly updated on their progress. Thank you in advance.
