El Salvador Teen Giveback

El Salvador Teen Giveback Learn what our teens have been up to in El Salvador this summer... Day 1: LAX-Las Flores Written by Stuart Henry Our adventure started with a hectic, yet gratifying series of events.  A group of kids from all along the California coast met at a ticketing desk for an airline we’d never heard of to board a plane for El Salvador.  Though we all come from different backgrounds, we share the same passion and find the most joy and happiness through surfing.  The first reason we were drawn to this place.  El Salvador is a beautiful country blessed with world class waves, but the people do not have a high standard of living.  In order to make this country even greater, is important to give back to the communities here.  It took 13 long hours of travel to finally reach our first destination, Las Flores.  Upon...

Karon Pardue (VP of PSOS) and myself head to south to pick up shoes at Olukai in Orange County. Olukai was kind enough to donate over 700 pairs of shoes, which was over $85K in shoes and several boxes of supplies. The entire company joined us as we  loaded up the 26ft Uhaul. Unfortunately, we were so loaded and still had one more stop in Flagstaff, Arizona that we decided to leave some boxes behind (they will be shipped) and start our journey East. Karon and I original goal was to make a pit stop in Flagstaff, AR and head directly to Albuquerque, NM. As hours passed by on the endless highway, we started getting very sleepy and our bodies ached from loading the…
