Our Origin Story
In 2007, Surf For Life co-founders Jonathan Sofer and Alex Fang ventured on several surf trips to Central America. They saw the apparent need for sustainable development work in these incredible destinations in order to better handle the changing social, environment, and economic landscapes that come with tourism. From here, the vision for Surf For Life was born – an organization that would bring hundreds of people to far off destinations to explore a new culture, and to do something meaningful to positively impact that community.
Today we are still run by travelers; explorers by nature.
We work in collaboration with local community leaders and organizations around the globe. Sur For Life would not exist without them.
