Surf in South America while Volunteering Abroad

September 12, 2010

Picture this: Wake up to some of the worlds most beautiful, untouched beaches in South America before diving in the water for a sunrise surf session then going into the local village to teach native children English.  Sounds like every environmentally concerned surfer’s dream…

Since 2008 Ecosurfvolunteers has turned this surf fantasy into a reality.  Eco Surf Volunteers merges international humanitarian work and environmental volunteering with surfing South America’s uncrowded breaks.  The program encourages the continuation of local traditions in Canoa, Ecuador and Tomas De Berlanga, of the Galapagos Islands while stimulating the community’s economy.  It aims to cultivate the growth of the local adventure tourism industry by teaching the youth English.  Future goals include creating a four-year school run by native-born residents that teaches students the nuances of operating a tourism oriented business.

Program dates run in December 2010, January 2011, and March 2011.
