    Joyful Antiracist Surf Lessons for BIPOC

    Through free surf lessons for all BIPOC, education on surf history & culture, and original media content that elevates representation, Color the Water is committed to fighting racism, reclaiming coastal land and waters, and changing surf culture in Los Angeles. We are transforming surf culture from the aggressive, territorial way it is now into something similar to its roots - surf based on a love and respect for the ocean centered in sharing, community and compassion, while helping surfers care for and protect the ocean and each other.
