The Buena Onda Surf Project bridges the common interests of surf communities in Oaxaca y California. We work closely with community leaders from urban and remote, developing communities to implement programs that improve the overall living conditions for their respective residents. In addition to our namesake surf project, we are active in creating solutions for safe drinking water, good nutrition, literacy, leadership, and educational programs that promote positive, conscious living.
Mexico The First Year
México El Primer Año
In 2010, the Buena Onda Surf Project launched its first campaign by teaming up with México’s legendary big-wave surfer, Coco Nogales. Together, we delivered over 20 brand new surfboards (courtesy of Global Surf Industries) and other surf equipment to deserving kids from the Oaxacan coastal communities of Puerto Escondido and Chacahua. Los Chavos estaban súper emocionados! The groms were stoked!
A special thanks to Packair Airfreight and Renta Imagen for assisting us with the shipment of the surfboards from Los Angeles to México. Orale, que chido!
La Casa Buena Onda 2012
La Ola de Amistad
Riding the wave of friendship, the Buena Onda Surf Project’s second campaign will launch the opening of La Casa Buena Onda. La palapa en la playa, La Casa Buena Onda is a surf clubhouse for kids on the remote island of Chacahua. With the support of local community leaders, La Casa Buena Onda provides a sanctuary for kids with the opportunity to choose a positive lifestyle through the exciting sport of surfing. In addition, La Casa Buena Onda will assist with programs that provide safe drinking water, good nutrition, improved irrigation, and other projects that contribute to the overall well being of the community.
In Los Angeles, the Buena Onda Surf Project seeks to create summer programs that introduce inner city youth to the fun sport of surfing. The programs provide kids with the fun opportunity to surf, appreciate the ocean, learn water safety, understand good nutrition, and experience the positivity associated with the surfing lifestyle.
