Summer Challenge

Get a taste of what Surfing The Nations does as well as the incredible island of Oahu, Hawaii in this 24-day summer program! Summer Challengers will have the opportunity to serve people in various communities around Oahu while on a non-stop mission to explore many of the adventures the island has to offer. The reward of saying “yes” to the challenge is adventure, a sense of purpose, and a completely new outlook on life. Make this summer one to remember by joining STN for a radical Summer Challenge!
