Collecting and reusing boards

The NGO Provide the Silde opens up new perspectives for young people at the West African coast. In Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Spain no longer needed surfboards and accessories are collected free of charge. Sorted and repaired, the equipment is sent to clubs and communities of African surfers where they open up new opportunities to generate an income.

Awareness of Inequality

Through our presence in the media and direct contact with donors of the surfers' scene we create an awareness of inequality. Donors recognize that things that are worthless for them are particularly precious to people in other regions. At the same time, previously unknown regions are becoming a new focus of attention for the widely travelled European surfers.

Goals & Destinations

Goals & Destinations

Goals & Destinations

„Social Integration“

  • Surfing brings people together in a community and influences especially young people positively in finding their own identity.
  • Surfing is a complex and difficult sport. By measuring with the forces of nature the surfer's self-confidence is growing.

„Surfing as an Economic Driver“

  • Good surf spots attract people locally and internationally.
  • Surfing needs local services, so small earning opportunities arise. We encourage and support the development of small surfing businesses (rental, repair and courses).

„Awareness for Environmental Protection“

  • Surfing creates awareness for the beauty and fragility of the ocean. Subsequent activities (beach clean-ups, etc.) and the passing on of this awareness is specifically encouraged.
