Waves For Water
As a professional surfer, Jon Rose traveled the world in pursuit of perfect waves and his adventures led him to some of the most breathtaking and remote locations in the world. After retiring from 13 years of pro surfing, in looking for his next move Jon was inspired by his father Jack Rose, who had set up a non-profit in Africa to help people catch and filter rainwater. Some of the best waves Jon had found surfing were in developing communities with no access to clean water and he wondered why solutions such as portable water filters could not be implemented in all of the regions he and his friends traveled through. Why couldn’t the surfers and travelers do what they love and help along the way? It turns out, they could.
