Mission Statement

The Wahine Surf Club is a 501-C4 and is heavily involved with community services such as beach clean ups, Surfer's Healing, Wave Warriors Surf Camp, Life Rolls On and Mauli Foundation. Our club is an avid promoter of healthy, active lifestyles and understands the healing effects of water activities. Because we actively support and participate in other programs, we see firsthand the participants’ emotions as they surf that wave....it's priceless. Surfing is therapeutic in that it is health restorative and rehabilitative. It empowers individuals physically and mentally, giving the person a sense of freedom and independence as well as increasing their self-esteem and self-confidence. In addition, several members, men, women, and children, within our organization are touched by breast cancer through treatments and support to family and friends, as well as surviving and overcoming the disease. The Wahine Surf Club is inspired to share the STOKE with the community and we are excited to promote our 2nd year event to bring awareness to breast cancer and to raise funds for our local chapter, Susan G. Komen of Tidewater on 10 October 2015, called "Surf for the Cure" which consists of paddleboard race, surfing clinics and surfing/sup contest.

Description

The Wahine Surf Club originated in Virginia Beach, Va., but the world of waterman sports is truly one without borders. We started by sharing photos, videos, meet-ups, events and news to create a cohesive community in our hometown, but realize this group -- and more importantly its message -- has the potential to grow into something much larger. The sports we are passionate about are enjoyed throughout the world, and the community we’ve created can be as well. Regardless of where you call home, feel free to share your perspectives and enjoy the camaraderie of people who are as passionate about the water as you are! Surfing, standup paddleboarding, kayaking, canoeing, windsurfing, kiteboarding, wave skiing, bodyboarding, skimboarding -- anything goes!
