The Surfers Not Street Children team are all youngsters who found themselves living on the streets of Durban as street children due to an array of social problems.
They have transitioned their lives through a fusion of surfing, psychosocial support and mentorship. Each of the team members has a desire to be part of ensuring that no child has to live on the streets as they did and uses
their own stories and surfing to inspire other children around the world. The Surfers Not Street Children ambassadors range between the age of 17 and 23 and are on a journey in their own lives, through the project, of becoming
self sustainable and independent. This can mean education, skills training, life skills, counselling, mentorship and apprenticeships. All are working towards a vocation and employment.
