Summer Challenge

Get a taste of what Surfing The Nations does, as well as the incredible island of Oahu, Hawaii in our 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. This program is perfect for high school graduates, or underclassmen in college or university. 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!
