Local Surf Lounge Academy

Be proud of yourself by helping this project to thrive!

Help to set up a Surf-Project, which is giving social disabled kids the ability to get into the water, learn to surf, get proper meals and get a lot of general Mentoring in many different areas of their life. 

South Africa still has a lot of Townships, where poverty, violence and traumatic experiences are reality for so many children & adults.
If these kids grow up without any kind of support or positive idols, they get easily involved in drugs & gangs, can’t see any kind of bright future and might easily give up trying to change their lives into better. 

Fortunately, there is Muizenberg, a 30 minutes' drive from Cape Town.
Home of great waves & many awesome surfers, it can be a pool of inspiration for these kids. It can open their minds and give them a completely different perspective.

If they are able to take part in this game. And this is how you can help.

With your donation for this project, kids from the townships are provided by 'The Local Surflounge Academy' with:

-Transport to the Sea
-Surf Equipment
-Surf Coaches & Mentors
-General help with homework & difficulties
-the ability to be together as a community in a constructive way and much more.

Like this, these kids start to grow and thrive massively. 

They are coming out of their common environment & habits, see different things, are able to release their overflow of energy which can be extreme because of traumatic experiences- it is a true natural therapy for them!
It gives them hope and also the ability to find jobs in the surf industry later on in their life.

The Local Surflounge Academy is founded by one of the best coaches down there, Shuan Solomons. 
Coming from the same backgrounds like the kids, he knows how to handle their difficulties and never gives up motivating and supporting them in his own, unique way.

Due to Covid 19 lots of the former programs for kids in Muizenberg couldn’t make it through this crisis and these kids now really need our support more than ever. 

This Project personally means a lot to me, because I have been in South Africa, I met a lot of these kids and have seen by myself, that surfing & being together in this constructive way really helps them a lot. 

That's why I'm so very thankful for every Donation to help these kids stay in touch with the lust for life and with joyful things that every kids should be able to experience.
With a natural therapy in good company & with idols who give them hope that they can also make it in this life.

Thank you so, so much.
