Surfing with Community:
A Returning Wave Adventure,
August 6 – 16, 2016 (Leyte & Samar)
Have you ever dreamed of surfing in paradise while engaging with local communities? Whether you are a seasoned surfer, or have always wanted to learn, this tour is sure to deliver. Join members of Returning Wave to explore the Island of Leyte and Samar in the Philippines. Returning Wave focuses on promoting education through the love of surfing by creating after-school surfing programs that keep children in school by offering the incentive of surfing lessons, and access to surfboards. On this tour, participants will be able to assist team members in establishing and maintaining lasting programs with local schools in order to affect positive change.
On the tour, you will have many opportunities to surf and lessons will be offered for beginners. Other highlights include visits to caves, mangroves, rock formations, and waterfalls as well as wildlife viewing and snorkeling. Volunteer group activities include teaching workshops at the local schools and beach clean-ups.
Space is limited; to register contact: email@example.com
