The WaterWays Mission Statement and Our Surf Travel Missionaries
What a long great trip it’s been going back to March of 1994 when WaterWays Travel started in a small office in Van Nuys California. In the early years the notion of organized international surf travel was new – with little to no competition. Each destination we launched was relatively new to the surfing community at large. Over time the world has become a smaller place with lightning-fast global Internet swell forecasting and the media pushing the limits of exploration into uncharted tropical waters and desolate cold harsh wastelands. This new age of surf travel has spawned a smorgasbord of surf camps of every style.
However, a few things have remained consistent over all these years: Surfers still dream of getting away from their daily lives and reconnecting with their surfing roots: relaxing to the sounds of the ocean and catching the best surf of their lives. This may be on a solo trip, a trip with some friends, a trip with the girlfriend/wife – boyfriend/husband or increasingly a trip with the entire family. There is nothing better than winding down the day feeling tired, sun drenched and satisfied: surfed out, well fed and ready for bed to dream dreams that could be reality the next day.
The WaterWays approach to choosing destinations, locations and local operators also remains unchanged. Every location and operation in the WaterWays menu has been thoroughly checked out over all the seasons. WaterWays employees spend part of the year checking out each destination in detail: from the comfort of the beds, to that weird end section on the reef to the speed of the wireless Internet service. There are a lot of travel options and operations to choose from and WaterWays only chooses the most reputable, based on our own experience and the feedback from others. WaterWays employees specialize in different parts of the globe, but all have the information and experience available to assure they recommend the right place at the right time to passengers looking to turn their day dreams into dream days.
The world has changed, but WaterWays’ mission statement remains the same: Our goal is to take the gamble and guesswork out of your surf travel adventure while at the same time providing the best value and service for every travel dollar.
Service and value are the principals on which WaterWays was founded and the reason we have continued to prosper each year with such a high percentage of repeat passengers and new passengers alike.
Finally, I am happy to say that after all these years I am still happy coming into work each day and look forward to sharing our knowledge with each of you.
Thank You & Happy Travels
