How to Help?

The Sebastian Indian Social Projects cost money to keep on going, so funds are much needed in order to preserve our existing projects and to establish new initiatives to help the weakest members of society...

Are you looking for a trustable project to sponsor, where 99% of your donated money flows directly to those who need it the most than surf directly to the SISP website or mail to if you have any further questions.

The Kovalam Surf Club started with a small group of young boys, eager to become good surfers. In the beginning we had three dinged boards to share between 10 boys, no boardshorts, rashvests, spare fins, leashes nor wax. With a whole lot of dedication, motivation and with the help of O`neill and generous surfers from economically more blessed beaches on the planet we now have an appropriate outfit and surfboard for each member of the Kovalam Surf Club. But one glance to our surfshack will teach you that we are always in desperate need of newer, less antique boards and more spare accessories, like leashes, who always tend to break in our powerful waves.

Be it bodyboards, foamies, fins, leashes, boardshorts or proper surfboards, please don`t hesitate and donate!!!

We made a commitment not to use any of our funds for the surf program, but only for the Sebastian Indian Social Projects. Because feeding a hungry mouth will always be more important than teaching a child how to play with the waves. But this also means that we are relying on your generosity to donate surf equipment. Please also bear in mind that a new fiberglass surfboard costs about the equivalent of a poor families` total 6 months income and therefore without your help would surfing always remain a distant dream for these children...

If you think you can help us in any way, be it financial or with logistics, contacts or appropriate surf equipment, don’t hesitate and contact us!!!

Our projects can only exist with your help!​

Support the Kovalam Surf Club and it's educational and social employment program for destitute youngsters and buy an original fair trade and ecological tee shirts!
