Today, the 9Miles Project teaches children from townships how to surf. In 2013 Nigel Savel founded the 9Miles Project in Cape Town. Since then, he and his team have been helping to bring the children from impoverished backgrounds from the townships and to give them the opportunity for a better life.
Through the provision of supplementary education, literacy classes, learning adventures, life skills and leadership training, including sports (namely surfing) 9Miles Project creates sustainable opportunities that engage, uplift, equip and empower impoverished and high risk youth from coastal informal settlements and communities.
Together with the 9Miles Project we organize activities on site for our guests.
