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.
"The accommodation was really good and defiantly added to my experience. The food was delicious and gave me a "real" experience of living in Peru." I loved that WAVES offered two weeks and was affordable, as most volunteer experiences are expensive or you don't have enough time off to fulfill them."
Great people and even better friends, with awesome plans to help the community!
"Expect an encouraging experience with dedicated community leaders, working hard to improve education, increase awareness, and make a difference in the local community. It's a great atmosphere for teamwork and cooperation. There will be plenty of fun and laughter, too."
"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 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.
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!

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!
We had such a blast these last two weeks hanging out at ETCA and getting to know some of the kids and youth and the ladies that work there.
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.
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.
