Surf Like a Girl (previously the Watergirl Fund) is a non-profit community surf project by iSurf School that provides needs-based surf programming and will introduce the wonders of surfing to girls, ages 5-15, who would don’t have access to the sport. Additionally, Surf Like a Girl is a 1% for the Planet recipient, recognized for the work we do in ocean stewardship and education, so if you are a 1% for the Planet member we would LOVE to work with you!
