THE BOARD DRIVE - SURFERS NOT STREET CHILDREN
Surfers Not Street Children’s new film The Board Drive is a story of how one surfboard in a shed kick-started a full-scale board-drive in the UK, that brought hope and smiles to hundreds of kids living in tough and challenging environments in South Africa and Mozambique.
Together with FCS and Softech Softboards, nearly 200 boards were donated to the South African children.
The Surfers Not Street Children model fuses surfing, mentorship and care and has dedicated local teams that include social workers, carers, lifeguards, surf coaches and administrators.
The program has transformed the lives of many children with an impressive portion of participants going from ‘street children' to becoming coffee baristas, lifesavers, surf shop staff, restauranteurs, surf coaches and even pro surfers.
