Surfing The Nations impacts local and international communities through the sport of surfing and selfless service by meeting needs and changing lives.

Get involved

Surfing The Nations is a creative community of risk-takers who are willing to serve, love and make a difference in Hawaii and around the world.

We have many opportunities for involvement - from actually being a hands-on volunteer at our base in Wahiawa for one, three or 15 months, or participating on an international outreach trip, to being a financial partner - we've got something for everyone!

Our Programs

  • International

    Be part of the movement of "Surfers Giving Back" across the nations! STN has committed annual surf adventure outreach trips to Bangladesh (April), Indonesia (July), Sri Lanka (August), Philippines (October) and the Middle East (December). Find out more details on each trip under International!

  • Outreach

    Our local outreaches are great opportunities to serve and be involved if you're on the island!

    Ulu Pono Kids reaches out to at-risk youth in our own community through the arts, skate and homework help.

    Feeding The Hungry supplies over 2,500 people weekly with much-needed food assistance and is a place where helping hands are always welcome!

    Surf outreach ensures that local underprivileged keiki get to enjoy Hawaii's gift to the world, while also training a new generation of young surfers to "give back" through the sport.

  • On Campus

    To serve at our Hawaii base there are a few options, all of which are challenging and fun!

    Internship is our entry-level program into STN and is a three-month whirlwind of humanitarian training, hands-on service and fun!

    Summer Challenge is a month-long summer program designed to give participants a taste of the island, of STN and of "giving back".

    Service Team is customized service opportunity for individuals who would like to serve for between one to three months, using a specific skill (barista, graphic designer, general contractor) to do so.

    Surfers Leadership School is the first three-month school for new staff members, those who have completed the Internship and wish to return for a longer service commitment of 15 months!
