SAVE THE DATE!  May 30, 2014

Each June in San Francisco, Save The Waves hosts Life Is A Wave, a fantastic evening of entertainment for all of our supporters and friends. The event directly benefits Save The Waves programs, such as our Chile Program, World Surfing Reserves, and our growing work with Surfonomics. Life Is A Wave 2014 will feature everything you have to come to love about the event, including but not limited to live music, multiple DJ sets, a VIP reception, audio-visual treats, and a live and silent auction.  This year's Wave Saver award will go to Ramon Navarro for his work to protect and preserve the coast of Pichilemu, Chile.

If you haven’t, consider Friday, May 30, 2014 the opportunity you’ve been waiting for to learn about Save The Waves’ global program work, mix and mingle with special guests from the surfing and environmental communities, and enjoy a great night out in downtown San Francisco.
