Come do a Work Exchange Hawaii with Kona Surf Company


Our Surf Camp in Kona Hawaii is a epic beach house and camp site located in the bay of Kahaluu, Kona Hawaii, steps away from the surf. — We provide a unique opportunity to experience the authentic Hawaiian way of life — Through daily surfing, yoga, remote beach and waterfall adventures, among countless other activities, our surf camp serves as a foundation to connect with yourself, other adventurous travelers, and Hawai’is vast and extraordinary offerings of nature and wildlife.



The idea is to create a fun, energetic atmosphere full of adventures and unforgettable memories, while simultaneously being in harmony with the environment and culture of Hawaii. To create this atmosphere, we are looking for open-minded volunteers who will be a constant positive and valuable contribution to our operational team.

We offer two tiers of volunteer options:

Qualified Volunteer: In exchange for accommodations and food, two meals a day (breakfast & dinner), you will provide a specific professionally-skilled trade. While we are open-minded to accepting other skilled trades, we are looking for volunteers with the following skills set :
Surf Instructor (ASAP/All Year),
Surf Manager Personal Assistant
Yoga Instructor (seasonal),
Professional Photographer (Seasonal),
Professional Videographer (seasonal),
Experienced Social Media experts
Your inquiry into this volunteer option will be carefully reviewed, and if accepted, you will potentially be asked to Skype so we can discuss the expected contributions further.

While we do all we can to determine a Volunteer’s qualifications prior to arrival, once accepted as a Qualified Volunteer, you will be required to undergo a one week trial period (meals included) your first week in camp, in which you simply exhibit your skill set and enthusiasm, to confirm your suggested capabilities.

A Qualified Volunteer can expect to be a large part of our day-to-day operations, and ultimately the entire camp’s development (around an average of 5 hours a day/5 days a week)!

B) General Volunteer: While this volunteer program isn’t as focused on one specific skill set like the Qualified Volunteer option is, your contributions to the team are as essential to the camp’s atmosphere, togetherness, and prosperity. In exchange for accommodations (not food), you will help with general, day-to-day tasks.

These general tasks can include: cleaning general areas, art projects, construction team, gardening, surf equipment maintenance, and miscellaneous tasks that help see the camp flourish at its optimal capacity. While you will never help more than 25 hours a week, these tasks will typically take up just 15-20 hours of your week.

— Please let us know which option you are interested in we also have combined these options in the past, and we will promptly respond back with our availability, camp FAQ’s, and any further necessary information. —

Mahalo Nui!!
