Winter is 10 Years old and is a Waves 4 Water ambassador. In 2014 Winter started #surftoschool, a simple program that any motivated kid can execute at their own school. In February 2015 several schools on Sydney’s Northern Beaches held #surftoschool days in conjunction with the Hurley Australian Open of Surfing. As a result in March 2015 Winter’s second water mission was able to deliver and implement 100 water filters and 3 x 2000 litre water tanks in the Mentawai Islands Indonesia, one of the worlds best but poorest surf regions. Today schools from every major Australian State and around the world from Indonesia to the United States of America are participating in #surftoschool.
This is a unique experience for kids to combine something they love with helping others along the way. To date Winter’s effort have been recognised by both the Premier of NSW and the Prime Minister of Australia. To get involved visit wavesforwater.org/project/surftoschool
