Hello, my name is Darron

Growing up in Ocean View, South Africa, Darron had first-hand experience of what poverty could do to children and their families. Despite the odds, he faced life with unwavering positivity and determination.

With a desire to improve his community and become a role model to children like him, he worked a youth outreach surf instructor. He believes that hard work, exercise, and a healthy environment can change lives. It is this belief that led him to develop OceanHood: a surf outreach that keeps underprivileged children off the streets and a part of a team. His goal is to give children like him hope, one wave at a time.
