Team CoreysWave believes surfing is a resource and is committed to sharing our passion with others. Wave Share is our community outreach program supporting youth development by sharing our passion with local youth.
Learning to surf without guidance is not easy. Many people who become surfers have family or friends help teach them the correct techniques, others take surf lessons. Wave Share aims to share surfing with those who have not surfed, who are interested in surfing, and who do not necessarily have the opportunity to try surfing on their own. We believe surfing is a resource and having passion for an activity that's good for your body and mind and takes up hours of your day in physical fitness is a great thing. We know the value of surfing and live to share that eye-opening, first-time surfing experience with kids as lifelong surfers (and groms) ourselves.
Local business Sweet'tauk has sponsored CoreysWave Surf! Complimentary Sweet'tauk lemonade comes with group lessons on weekends, Kids Surf Academy and Wave Share events. Sweet’tauk low sugar, fresh squeezed lemonade made right here in Montauk will be provided as refreshment. You can visit and learn more about Sweet’tauk at their shop at 34 S Etna Ave, Montauk or online at www.sweettauk.com
CoreysWave teams up with the YMCA East Hampton RECenter Leaders Club and Sports/Swim Camp to bring surfing to East Hampton kids! As part of the Lemonade & Leaders program, CoreysWave is providing no-cost surf instruction to the Summer 2015 programming to offset camp costs. This will help provide more scholarships to local community members to use the YMCA East Hampton RECenter, a community-based service organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of children, adults and families through programs that develop spirit, mind, and body to thousands of individuals and families in the Hamptons. Check out Leaders & Lemonade fellow Blue Team Member Jake here.

JUNE 2015: Congratulations to all of the Montauk School kids who submitted to the Wave Share: June 2015 essay scholarship contest! Stay tuned for photos from the Wave Share surf session coming up! Many thanks to the Montauk School PTA, the YMCA East Hampton RECenter, and Gurney’s for their support in facilitating the essay scholarship and swim testing.
FEBRUARY 2015: Follow our latest travels to Baja, Mexico where we surfed with the youth of La Misión! Team CoreysWave turned an epic, group surf trip into its first international Wave Share event. The small-world, good karma of the Montauk community led us to link up with Long Beach, NY-based Resurf Project to supply donated surfboard gear to the kids of La Misión. Over the course of a week with massive swell and perfect conditions, Team CoreysWave held two Wave Share surf lesson days, visited a local orphanage for a surfboard-painting art project, and met with the senior class of the local high school. Many thanks to Oran Bendelstein and Resurf Project, Evan Menen and La Misión Surf, the Menen and Speilman families, Gloria Snyder, and our sponsor Xcel Wetsuits for their efforts to support and sustain youth surfing programs in Northern Baja! There’s much more to do—stay tuned for news and videos from our trip!
JULY 2014: Our first Wave Share event supported Camp Interactive—a NYC-based nonprofit that teaches coding and computer science to diverse low-income high school students. With the help of The Surf Lodge in Montauk, Camp Interactive brought their students to CoreysWave for leadership development in surfing. One student, Samuel Perez, said “I got really good at surfing because of the cool instructors at CoreysWave, who kept giving me great advice and wouldn’t let me give up.” Check out photos here. Hope to see you again in 2015!
