Changing lives through surfing and education.

MISSION:To impact the lives of the at-risk youth using Surf and Education as effective tools to keep kids off the street and in school.

HISTORY: S4Y started in 2012 by Andrea Diaz as a way to give back to the youth of the Guanacaste area. The original intent of the program was to be an outreach for underprivileged kids. It was designed to teach them discipline, dedication and trust through the sport of surf.

Thanks to Your Sponsorship we are doing great things in the lives of these kids. In addition to Technical and Tactical High Performance training they are currently receiving S4Y also offers: Tutoring: English, Math, Computer Travel to Local and National Tournaments Free Surfboards Uniforms and School Supplies Counseling and Spiritual Guidance Campouts and other Motivational Experiences Discipline, Inspiration and Family! Thank you all for your constant support of this mission. We Love you all and look forward to working with you on this adventure God has allowed us the opportunity to be part of.
