During the three-month internship program, an inter island outreach is included as an opportunity to engage with the local culture and customs as well as to give back to the community.

Whether it is hosting a skate contest on the island of Moloka’i or assisting in the building of a church on the island of Lana’i, the experience is guaranteed to demonstrate and experience the power of “surfers giving back.”

Interns are highly encouraged to participate in an international outreach before or after their internship program. For more information on current outreaches check out the STN International Department.



Interns live in dormitory-style housing with individuals from all over the world and are able to share fun and challenging experiences, meals and community life together.
