The Wahine Project

The Wahine Project

The Wahine Project seeks to break down the barriers that prevent the participation of young girls in the sport of surfing and provide them the opportunity to not only become proficient surfers but as a result of surfing, increase their awareness to their global citizenship.

Allow access to girls in the sport of surfing who would otherwise not have the opportunity. Focus on ocean safety and ocean recreation. Provide education on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle thru exercise and good nutrition. Promote positive self-esteem thru the participation of sports. Develop a sense of social responsibility and environmental stewardship.
