Thirty-two interns and six staff members are on the island of Kauai for the next 10 days! They will be bonding as a team through work projects in the community and activities like camping and hiking. The main focus is to serve the people of the island of Kauai and help meet the needs that are there.
The team will also be speaking at local high schools in the area and working with STN Kauai. (Did you know there was an STN Kauai base? More info to follow!)
We are stoked to send out our internship and watch them grow in leadership and selflessness as they live the lifestyle of ’Surfers Giving Back’.

Want a little taste of what Kauai is like?
Although we won’t be going on helicopter rides or lounging on a beach the whole time, the island of Kauai is definitely one of the most beautiful places we’ve seen, so we want you to share in it too. Here is a honeymooner’s view:
Surfing the Nations headquarters is swarming with a huge population of Swedes.
Lucky for us, Swedes seem to be pretty on top of it in the style, fashion, design, music, and other creative realms. We are constantly presented with the opportunity to glean from their ways: some things we’ve adopted (fika, Swedish chocolate balls, and of course, a love for IKEA) and some things we’ve just left to the Vikings (watching Donald Duck to celebrate Christmas..?) All that to say, you don’t have to look much farther than Scandinavia land for something fresh and rad. This weekend’s jam Amanda and Rasmus comes straight from Gothenburg. The cool thing about these guys is the power of their teamwork: Amanda write poems and Rasmus puts music to those poems and presto!- a song is born! That’s a pretty amazing collaboration if we say so ourselves. We imagine it probably takes some pretty creative and flexible people to be able to combine their arts so wonderfully.
Check out this upbeat track Follow Me from their four song EP (also called Follow Me). Download the entire EP with soundcloud here.
