"As I left Lobitos this time, it was with a quiet but irrepressible sense of joy and satisfaction, knowing that Henry will continue to fuel this creative cycle, amplifying and sharing the story of his town and WAVES—the organization that has brought so many good people there to teach and to learn."
Great people and even better friends, with awesome plans to help the community!
"I knew it that I was in the right place. The days were pure fun, a good swell hit Lobitos and we surfed fun waves everyday. Besides that, I helped Javier with the Mini ramp and went to surf and English classes to help the teachers and get in touch with the kids and the community."
La Choza Chula – a wonderful combination of cultural immersion and sustainable development in action.
A remarkable small organization making a huge impact on this tiny village!

A great alternative to the Me, Me, Me surf trip: connecting with locals while teaching and learning. Surfing perfect waves in a remote location, but having the company and camaraderie of being part of a team with a goal.
The best trips are those you do not plan for! Thank you for this great experience, in which apart from knowing another culture I had the opportunity to meet great people!
