Our mission is to promote education for youth through the love of surfing. Balikbayod is a project of the 501-c3 non-profit, The San Francisco Filipino Cultural Center.
We are a group of people who love the Philippines, love traveling, and would like to see surfing available to anyone who wants to try it, regardless of economic background. Have you ever traveled to surf in other countries and noticed the local children have an interest in surfing but don’t have access to surf boards? We did notice, and we began our program in the Philippines by bringing donated surfboards to the youth of the Siargao Cloud 9 area.
