Project WOO Improving Surfing’s Global Footprint

June 04, 2012

Project Wave of Optimism is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ‘improving surfing’s global footprint’.  Project WOO helps poor coastal communities in Latin America launch community projects to improve their quality of life.  Realizing that surfing positively impacts these communities, the surfboard checkout program was created from donated surfboards to give community members access and incentives to earn the use of them.  Check out the photos below of Matt and Margaret Calvani’s donation to Project WOO.
