SEAthletes is a 501(c)(3) organization, which inspires people to nurture the Salton Sea, by creating opportunities to participate in recreational water sports on the sea. KAI WAI, a division of SEAthletes, partners with the Desert Recreation District and the California Department of Parks and Recreation to provide year-around programing for kids and adults both locally and across Coachella Valley. Our KAI WAI Kid advocacy program exists to give every kid the opportunity to recreate on the Salton Sea.
The facts show the sea is disappearing. In just the past 7 years, the sea has lost 6 percent of its former surface. If the sea continues to dry up at this unprecedented rate, it will dramatically impact the health of our lives in California and beyond along with the wildlife that depend on the water.
To get more people on board with nurturing the Salton Sea today, we have to change the current narrative. For every person seen on the water through social networks, we will be able to increase Salton Sea advocates tenfold. By translating our passion into purpose, and purpose into action, we can begin to improve the community and ultimately the longevity of the sea.
KAI WAI will be hosting the inaugural North Shore Xtreme [NSX]. It will be held February 12-14, 2016 at the Salton Sea State Recreation Area. Over 500 athletes will be competing in outrigger and stand up paddle races. Our goal is to record over 5,000 images of people engaged in the water. You can be a part of those lasting images.
Your support can make a big difference in how broad our reach can be to shine a new light on the Salton Sea.
