What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Surf Project

“Work with children and teach the underprivileged to surf”.

The program runs From Tuesday to Saturday (from 10.30 am – 5.30 pm) with Sundays and Mondays free to explore the area and Go to the Local Church. Our aim is to help many children in need whilst adding hope and Love into their lives. This Project was founded by Mandy Weschta in 2007, Since then Many Surf schools have started teaching Surfing to the Less Privileged children. We give the children encouragement by teaching them new skills and helping them with their Home work daily before Surfing. These children are from very poor backgrounds. We encourage the children and continue to introduce a good foundation into their lives. We are teaching the children new skills such as: Surfing, Soccer, Literacy and Reading, Computer literacy and programming, African Drumming and Creative movement and Arts and Crafts, Ocean Conservation and Environmental Education. Your help and assistance in running these Projects will be much appreciated. We do have a leader working with you during all the activities. These projects run throughout the year (except from the 20th December – 15th January the surfing project is closed).


We welcome you as a volunteer to Pray with the children and read the bible to them.


The children we teach are aged between 6-16 years old. The Project runs from Monday to Friday from 11:00 am – 5.00 pm. (You will have weekends free to explore). The Surfing Project gives you the opportunity to build rewarding relationships with the children. The children can speak English although their home language is Afrikaans or Xhosa. Volunteer’s mornings are spent learning to Surf or Teaching Surfing lessons to the children alongside the coordinator. In the afternoons we need help with assisting the children the following:

Assisting with teaching Surfing and swimming lessons to the children (You will also get to learn to Surf in the Mornings).

Assisting the children with reading and their Home work

Soccer program on the beach after Surfing

You are most welcome to do bible study with the children and Pray with them

Teaching the children African Drumming (and learning yourself).

Assisting with Making sandwiches for the children.

Projects will vary based on your skills and interests and the present needs of the program co-ordinator at the time.

Your role as volunteer is very important in changing and shaping these children’s lives. This project is loads of fun and your efforts will be greatly appreciated. Any old clothes, shoes and blankets are a welcome donation to the community. They are always in need of these.
