Image: HIV or AIDS, the virus we are here to tackle.

As I sit here and write all that comes to mind is the smile I created on a child`s face today after they caught their very first wave. Being the author of a child’s smile is my daily mission as a surf coach with Waves for Change and it is far more fulfilling and rewarding than creating a new scientific theory. Here in the ocean, smiling is a spontaneous reaction that seems to affect everyone and can be transferred faster than HIV or AIDS, the virus we are here to tackle.

Waves for Change is making waves among the dusty streets of Masiphumelele – my community. It is making waves because it opens up discussions among young teenagers about the various challenges they face daily. The teenagers find an Oasis and a place refuge whenever we come together daily to discus our issues. Our issues or challenges are mainly HIV and Aids which has left a huge itchy wound on the community because one night we slept as teenagers and the following cold morning we woke up as Adults of child headed households.   Read More...

It takes time I know, but we will be there for each other, holding each other’s hands. Just imagine when we stand for the first time (Akumnandi), its wonderful. We can break the stigma that says surfing is for guys.   Read More...
