Making Waves is a program started by three sisters, Michaela, Cameron, and Delaney McDermott. It is a surfing program created for young girls to promote healthy living, mentally and physically. The goal is to create a positive and supportive environment for girls to be themselves, share memories, and learn to surf!

The program is aimed at girls in 6th through 9th grade, going through their formative years, hoping that a girl in a girl community will inspire and encourage girls to follow their passions and dreams. The mission of the program is to share a passion for sun, surf, and good vibrations.

“Sun” stands for our commitment to preserve and appreciate the earth, “surf” refers to fitness and staying active, and “good vibrations” involves having a positive attitude in every aspect of life.
