The Welcome to Paradise Foundation was created as the charitable side of Christian M Laing Surfboards. A percentage of every surfboard sold goes to the foundation.

We have a dream to bring Paradise to those who need it most!

In 2013 we partnered with Thrive Madagascar to start The Living Centre in the slums of Madagascar. The place is pumping with hundreds of meals being served up each week to support children living in extreme poverty. The centre also runs a range of vocational training programs including computing, English language classes, sewing and hairdressing.


The foundation is also supporting two incredible aid workers in South Sudan and The Didi Foundation in Nepal where we are funding a food program in a school for children who work as slaves in the brickyards.


By purchasing a board you are supporting  more then just your surfing addiction but you are helping support this foundation.  For more info or if your keen to support us on another level check out the foundations website here.
