Catching Waves Changes Lives

Urban Surf 4 Kids is a unique outreach organization that works with orphan youth and foster kids. Using water sports as a catalyst, we teach kids how to first have fun and then give back to their communities and neighborhoods through local service projects.

Meet Destiny & Charles: The Power of Aloha, Ohana, and Love

Did you know the majority of foster youth aren’t allowed to physically enter the ocean due to liability and insurance policies?! Imagine a life without the ocean in the beautiful place we get to call home.

Water sports such as surfing and stand up paddle boarding allow youth to experience healthy outlets and interact with positive influences.

Our organization has built an “OHANA” (family) for both volunteers and our youth. Come join our Ohana and become part of our mission to transform the lives of foster youth for the better!

Join our Ohana and be a part of something truly great. Volunteer, Donate, Participate in one of our events or tell your friends about us. Get involved and help change a life!

“…At Urban Surf 4 Kids, our goal for every orphan and foster child is to remove the ‘underprivileged’, label and replace it with the ’empowered’ label. With the right resources and volunteers, we can do it!” ~Wesley Stewart, Founder

Meet Craig Jenkins, San Diego Chapter President

‘I am most proud of the family “Ohana” that we have built. Most of these youth move from home to home throughout their lives and never get the consistency and support from a family unit. We have become that Ohana for these kids. I think what sets us apart from other organizations is that we are small and really family oriented. We really focus on creating this family unit for these kids that don’t have one. When you come to one of our events your not just volunteering your extending your family.’
