After 5 months in the pool, 10 kids graduated into the first running Surf Project. Today we work with children from 3 different local schools. New this year is the opening of the “Surfboard Library” working with local parents and schools to reward the kids with Library “chips” for good behavior and grades. The kids are now cashing in their chips for extra classes and board rentals. The program has been possible through voluntary efforts of Betty staff members, tourist volunteers, local volunteer parents and plenty of pizza donations from the Surf Shak. We run a monthly Kid’s Surf Day to celebrate and share and grow the beautiful world of surf with those who might never have an opportunity to be a part of surf today and economic potential of the future.
