SDSU College of Business - Student Surf Vacation Leads to New Non-Profit Organization

“Where’s the best place on earth to surf?”

In 2006 SDSU undergraduate student, Zack Parker, asked this question of the local population while he was vacationing in Australia. Parker was told about a place in nearby Papua New Guinea that got rave reviews from the surfing community, but he was told “You don’t want to go there.”

But in his quest for the perfect wave, Parker went anyway and soon understood why he was issued the warning: a lack of any type of running water made living conditions incredibly unsanitary.
