Management provides scholarship programs, books, and educational programs for their crew in order to further their education and increase local livelihoods. Not to mention, the resort teaches their staff how to surf with donated boards from repeat guests so the local surfing community can grow! WavePark has also makes in kind donations to local government initiatives, health programs, cultural events, mosquito nets, water filtration kits, and loans to help local entrepreneurs start their own businesses. All of this means you can feel confident that the cost of your dream surf vacation is going right back into the community.
