Twelve students from inner-city Los Angeles paid weekly visits to Huntington Beach for the duration of summer where they learned to surf and collaborated as a team to build the first ever STOKED Magazine.
The 16-page mag reflects their personal stories and how Stoked has helped transform their lives.
Besides an introduction to journalism and photography, the students surfed with Nike 6.0 athletes, scored VIP treatment at the US Open and broadcasted the story of Stoked to the world via the event webcast.
Here's a look at a clip of their webcast:
Their voice was so loud, it inspired contest winner, Evan Geiselman, to donate his winnings to Stoked Mentoring, so the program can grow and impact more lives. The magazine printing was donated generously by Transworld Business Magazine.
