Only interested in volunteering?

We understand that some individuals may not be interested in surfing but still want to live in and volunteer in Busua – no problem! When others are out surfing you can use your free time to explore nearby villages, relax at the beach or we can work with you to arrange other activities according to your interests. Please indicate on your volunteer application if you are not interested in partaking in the surf camp.

Surf Camp Info

Volunteers new to surfing will have the opportunity to participate in a surf camp with a certified surf instructor and trained local staff. The surf camp will take place five days a week for two hours and will be scheduled around your volunteer placement. During off days, volunteers can choose to take out a surfboard to further practice their skills or enjoy relaxing in their free time.

For intermediate and advanced surfers the certified instructor can tailor his lessons to help you take your surfing to the next level. Depending on season* and schedule, the surf staff can also be available to take intermediate and advanced surfers on surf excursions to one of the numerous beach and point breaks in the area. This is a great opportunity to score some of the waves of your life with no one out!
