Angel Hernandez is all smiles as he gets out of the water during the annual Save Our Youth surf camp. Angel and 20 other youth from SOY took advantage of the free surf lessons provided by volunteer instructors from Volcom.

About 20 teens from Costa Mesa nonprofit Save Our Youth took part in the group’s annual free surf camp in Newport Beach.

SOY has held the camp for nine years and Costa Mesa-based Volcom has been providing volunteer coaches and other support for three years.

Derek Sabori, vice president of sustainability for Volcom, helped organize this year’s camp with SOY Activities Coordinator Eddie Iniestra. Volcom provided the instructors, donated some surf boards to SOY and brought breakfast to the kids each morning.
