I’ve known Henry for a while now. Whether it be at the skate ramp, on the beach or shooting a Reggae concert in Piura, we’ve had some fun times together. Pretty awesome to see him grow up with WAVES. Below is a video of the man himself.
Consider making a donation to WAVES this Holiday season.
Warm Current youth surf camp with Makah tribe
Thanks to Green-Go Solar, and what I learned in Scorpion Bay during a recent training with them, I successfully constructed a 80+ watt panel. While it may not be the prettiest panel with chipped/cracked cells, happy to see it produce more than 19 volts and charge the battery! Stoked to share what I learned in Peru next week…
While the waves were decent at this year’s Clean Water Classic, the overall weekend experience with new and old friends was epic. Highlight had to have been the Warm Current camp. Check out the pics to get an idea of what they’re about and then check out their website and Facebook.

While Education and Surf Voluntourism programs have been active in Lobitos, a coastal community in Northern Peru, an infusion of funds will help the newly opened and locally run Community Surf Centre grow. The value of the grant will be multiplied through the purchase and sale of t-shirts that reflect the surf values of the area. Local youth will decide on the design which can be screen printed in close proximity to where they are sold. Visiting travelers will buy the shirts at the Community Surf Centre. 100% of the revenue generated will stay in the community through funding the ongoing English, Environmental Education, Surf/Swim classes. Traveling surfers can assist in the classes taught by local professionals.

Great to hang with college friends from CSU!
