Surfing For A Purpose
We believe that surf travel should benefit the people and the communities where it happens. Go to surf, leave something behind.
This is a fantastic way not only to get surf on a fantastic secluded coast, but also to get to really understand the culture and people of a poor fishing town. You get to interact every day with the townspeople and learn about a way of life that is probably foreign to most.
"I walk away with from this feeling like so much has happened, so much was achieved and there are so many stories to tell and a lot of great experiences to share. Lobitos is a lovely, growing desert village with an interesting historical background, friendly people and lots to offer."
What an incredible program in a great community! Their facilitated programs are well executed and directly benefit the local community. The staff as well were very helpful, knowledgeable, passionate and kind!
"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."

I had an amazing time at ETCA playing with and getting to know the kids of the community. Lots of "ping pong", laughs, spanglish conversations, and on the last day we made bracelets!
"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."
Something very hard to find...great mix of waves, awesome food, nice rooms, and you get to hang and learn from some of the best surfers around. There are no crowds no commercialism...Thanks for everything!
La Choza Chula – a wonderful combination of cultural immersion and sustainable development in action.
The surfing spots and opportunities are plentiful; there are three great breaks within walking distance and if the wind isn't cooperating, they can drive you to a better spot.
Whether you're a beginner or expert surfer, you can find consistent waves to ride in every one of the beautiful locations.
Each day collaborate with the local community and assist on projects. That way once you leave, you'll leave something behind.
From homestay to five star resort, WAVES provides homecooked meals and accomodation to make you feel at home.
