“Surfing has taught our students that if you work hard anything is possible… that waves & challenges will always come but it is up to us to decide if we’ll give up or ride them”

Nigel Savel, Founder


A transformed society where created opportunities are maximised and our youth are effectively developed, empowered and integrated into their communities and society.

9Miles Project is a registered non-profit organisation that was founded in Cape Town in 2013. The project works with youth in coastal informal settlements and aims to provide mentorship and support to the at-risk youth in the areas of Cape Town, Elands Bay, and St Francis Bay.
