Surfing Swami's Foundation

Welcome to the Surfing Swami’s Foundation [SSF]. Inspired by the founder Jack "Swami" Hebner, the Surfing Swami’s Foundation is a non profit organization dedicated to helping teach surfing and environmental awareness to children, orphans, and handicapped persons of any age or gender.

Additionally, the SSF helps children with scholarships, school supplies, medical needs and personal instruction in fundamental character development — thus helping to educate and create a generation of individuals with an enhanced feeling of environmental awareness and social responsibility.

Recently SSF has sponsored the first All India Surf Team, comprised of boys and girls throughout India.

Many of our visiting guests through the years have been moved to see young Indian boys and girls become enthused about surfing and see first hand the joy and confidence it produces in them.

All our members here at the Surf Ashram are volunteers who only accept room and board as compensation. All profits generated by our surfing businesses are used to maintain the surf ashram and help in the Foundations activities. 

Many have donated financially to aid in this cause, maybe you’re interested in helping too. Funds as well as surf gear is always in great shortage in the villages; surfboards, board shorts, booties, rash guards, board wax, etc.  All these items, new or used, can be donated if you would like to help put the stoke in some kid’s life.
