WAVES FOR WATER PARTNERS WITH THE ASP WORLD TOUR TO HELP PROVIDE ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER FOR OVER 100,000 PEOPLE.

Gold Coast, QLD, Australia // Feb 26, 2014 – Waves For Water and The Association of Surfing Professionals have partnered to implement W4W’s clean water programs during every event of the season, in nearby areas of need.
