Our volunteering program is structured more as a learning program in exchange for work at Mantra Surf Club for a duration of 30 days. In this duration, you will learn surfing, kayaking, stand-up paddling, ocean dynamics, how to read currents and tides, how to rescue a person with the help of equipment and so much more.

Who is this program for?

This program is for those who are serious about outdoor activities, but at the same time also understands the working of a community. We require people with a professional attitude who are ready to work with others as a team and keep up the spirits of everyone around.

The work here at the surf club is indeed quite demanding. Our activities start early in the morning by 6:45 and will go on until 7 in the evening. This work will consist of creating content constantly, thinking of new and creative ways to engage the students and audience, involving in the activities of the foundation programs, and keeping Mantra’s social profiles active.

There is no set list of things that you as a volunteer will be doing, rather it will be a mix of all kinds of activities that will help you learn a whole range of activities and skills.

All in all, this program is designed for someone who is serious about water sports, community living, hard-working, and looking to connect with people wholeheartedly.

THIS PROGRAM IS “NOT FOR” - PARTYING, CHILLING, EXPERIENCING LOCAL CULTURE, OR TOURING WHILE YOU STAY WITH US.
