Jon has committed his life to doing what he loves and helping where he can. In 2009, he founded Waves For Water ( http://www.wavesforwater.org ), an organization designed to get clean water, through simple, cheap filtration systems, to those who need it around the world.
After a surf trip to Indonesia landed him in in the middle of a tsunami-devastated Sumatra, Jon created a lean effective organization that has provided clean water for well over 2 million people who would have otherwise been left without. He works with the likes of the UN, Nike and Hurley to get clean water to devastated areas before disease strikes.
