Surf Haiti - HQ

The mission is to give disadvantaged youth in the area the opportunity to get in the water and surf and to establish Haiti as a surf tourism destination.

About Surf Haiti Surf Haiti is a Haitian non-profit organization founded in 2011 on Haiti’s southern coast. Surf Haiti teaches local kids how to swim and surf, provides lessons for visitors, rents boards and organizes beach clean-ups. The group currently has 30 members ranging in age from 11 to 21 years old. Surfing gives members the chance to engage positively with one another and have fun, while simultaneously strengthening ties in their communities. Surf Haiti, with the participation of the local population, is developing a “surf culture” in the region of Cayes Jacmel. Tourists are drawn to the local beaches because of varied surf breaks and uncrowded waves. Tapping into the surf industry creates an opportunity for economic development in the community and provides a much needed income stream for the program participants. Surf Haiti also emphasizes sustainable management of the ocean and coastline.
