The sad reality in South Africa is that a child goes missing every five hours, according to figures released by the South African Police Service Missing Persons. Missing Children South Africa is a registered non-profit organisation who devote their time to bringing these missing children home safely. Fortunately, according to Missing Children South Africa’s statistics, 77% of children are found. Sadly, this still leaves them with at least 23% of the children not being located, largely attributed to huge budget restraints.
On Saturday, 09 September 2017, Surf Emporium will host their annual Surf Emporium Celebrity Surf Day to raise funds for MCSA in order to assist them in their incredible mission, whereby all proceeds are donated to MCSA. We will have a total of 100 spots available for a fun, group surf lesson!
People can get involved in 4 easy ways, namely:
1. Sign up for a 1.5 hour surf lesson with a team of South African celebrities.
Spend the morning surfing with your favourite celebrities. This will be a 100 person group lesson where the celebrities will move between the learners of the group.

Looking for a fun team-building event?
In addition to the above, we also have incredible corporate group offerings which are amazing for team-building and/or end of year functions to encourage camaraderie, whilst doing something fun and for a great cause:
- Only R3990 – for a group booking of 10 employees/clients.
- Only R7980 – for a group booking of 20 employees/clients
Food for thought: If your office is too big, book out multiple groups or separate your departments for some friendly competition!
2. Sponsoring a child from Waves 4 Change and allowing them the opportunity to surf with the group of celebrities
Sponsor a child from Waves for Change the opportunity to participate in the lesson above. People can also make a “donation” of an amount of their choice, knowing that R399 gives one child a place but if there are smaller donations it adds to towards a child’s place. 100% of the donation goes to MCSA.
3. Purchasing memorabilia that has been donated where 100% of the sale will go to MCSA
Purchasing a variety of memorabilia items on sale. 100% of the sale goes to MCSA. These items will go on display in the Surf Emporium Surf School front window as soon as we have them.
4. Purchasing a raffle ticket
Purchasing a raffle ticket for R100. 100% of the sale goes to MCSA. These “raffle packages” can be on display at the store for people to see what they can win. People can purchase online or in store.

- Securing surf lesson bookings
