Roxy Davis Foundation
We are so passionate about making the ocean accessible to All South Africans. For those that can afford it and for those that cant. Those that are able bodied and those that have a physical or intellectual disability.
For those that are suffering or being challenged with mental health problems, cancer, terminal illness, PTSD, Depression, eating disorders, anxiety disorders. Everyone is welcome. That is my dream and that is the foundations vision. SURFING CHANGED MY LIFE, IT WAS AND STILL IS MY THERAPY. MY MEDICINE. I want to be able to share it with other South Africans.
Roxy founded her Surf School in 2002 with an umbrella on Muizenberg beach and a clear vision of where she wanted to go with the concept. Her dreams became a reality far sooner than she had anticipated. Growing from a dream of teaching forty girls a week quickly turned into 200 girls within the first Programme intake. The umbrella soon gave way for a share of half a hardware store for storage, and later into opening her own Surf School facility, which she aptly named the Roxy Surf Club.
