https://vimeo.com/342867248/62e407706c: Here is a video explaining why we need funds to continue and complete this very unique and special documentary.

Eighteen months ago, Brad Hook - a volunteer who took an interest in Live for More - started filming the work we are doing and the young men's stories of transformation. He has done this all voluntarily and in his own time (outside of a very full-time job!) because he wants to share with the world the power of surf therapy changing lives.

We are fundraising so this documentary can be completed professionally by the end of 2019. We want it to be high-quality (cinema quality) so it can be shown around the world and entered into film festivals. All of the young men featured in this documentary have powerful stories they deserve to share!

About us

Live for More has a vision for confident and hopeful rangatahi/young people free from their pasts, empowered to live up to their true potential and have fulfilling lives.

We believe there is so much MORE to life than drugs, alcohol and crime and we exist to empower vulnerable and disengaged rangatahi/young people to find FREEDOM from their troubled lifestyles.

Live for More uses surfing to engage troubled young people. We run a surf therapy programme called Tai Wātea, which translates to Waves of Freedom.

This therapeutic group programme uses surfing as an effective clinical tool to engage young people who may not respond well to typical intervention. The concept of surfing is also a tangible and understandable analogy for life which is woven throughout the clinical group work. An example of this is how in surfing when we fall we must get back on the board, and in life we must persevere and never give up.

Live for More endeavours to sow hope into young people who are caught up in the justice system and lifestyles of drug and alcohol abuse.

We believe that every single young person can have a meaningful and successful future, regardless of their past decisions and where they have come from.

We know that with the right support and encouragement, young people are able to make better decisions and turn their lives around for a healthier future.

Live for More does not believe in a ‘too hard basket’. We believe that every single young person has value, should be treated with respect and deserves a chance.

We look beyond the hardened exteriors that many young people have, and we see the latent potential that lies within. We endeavour to extract this potential and empower these young people to live for more.

Use of funds

Funds will be used to pay professionals to complete the documentary.

Any additional funds will go towards the documentary's premiere, entering it into film festivals, and to operational costs of Live for More.
