Waves for Development - Lima

Mission is to inspire world travel and cultural exchange through surf experiences, while collaboratively building a network of partnerships that connect travelers, community members and grassroots organizations.

WAVES connects the dots between volunteering, traveling to surf, community-based tourism and grassroots initiatives. It’s a network of partnerships to help traveling surfers, coastal community members and grassroots organizations effectively work together. WAVES originated on the beaches of northern Peru in late 2004, when a group of local and international surfers came together out of a shared desire to teach local youth the joys of surfing. Over the next three years, these surfers developed a Google Group to form a global network of more than 30 dedicated individuals, organizations, and institutions. Each one had stories to tell of the stoke, culture, and richness that they had observed during the course of their travels in Peru. They dreamed of building consciousness into the surf travel experience, and empowering local surf communities.
