SWOT Club surfing for transformation
There's a surf school making waves in Cape Town for its work with underprivileged children in Muizenberg.
The Surfers with Original Talent (SWOT) team founded a club of young surfers, teaching them all they need to know about the surface water sport.
SWOT surf founder Danielle Johnson says her team is a club of transformation surfers.
The club started in February and has already placed fifth in an inter-club competition.
There are 10 members in the club which form two teams.
An elite team of pro surfers run surfing clinics with kids across other parts of the country too.
Johnson says surfing has the ability to help people value their lives and gain self-discipline.

She says the club has helped focus the youth involved and envisions that SWOT will soon be surfing at international events.
