A long-held belief in the Hawaiian Islands is the idea that if you take something you must give something. In other words if the land gives to you, you must give back to the land. In 1997 Surfing The Nations established its international branch to give back globally the blessings that were received locally. Utilizing the surfer’s unique adventurous spirit, young and old surfers alike from nations all over the world gathered in Hawaii to be sent out to bring the message of love.
Since 1997 STN has started annual community development expeditions throughout many nations in Southeast Asia and North Africa. From nation to nation the specific work varies but the overall goal to uplift communities remains the same. We believe that this generation of surfers will go out to the nations being the change that they want to see.
