ABOUT

First Waves is an initiative teaching teens facing adversity ages 15 to 18 to surf and standup paddleboard on local waterways, while simultaneously providing a hands-on education about film-making and waterway conservation.  The ambition of the program is to inspire a passion for conservation through the exhilaration and joy of catching their first waves.
