To elevate the potential and well-being of youth through surf-focused activities that promote academic success, healthy lifestyles, and lifelong environmental stewardship.
Ian Walsh’s Menehune Mayhem Foundation delivers activities and events that encourage youth ages 15 years old and younger to maximize their potential in surfing, fitness, and healthy living; cultivate their talents in communication through academics and the arts; and care for and champion the natural environment of their communities. We offer a minimum of two scholarships per year to deserving high school students headed to college in fields of study that align with our mission.
About the Menehune Mayhem
The Menehune Mayhem will see over 400 kids ranging in age from 4 to 15 years old for two days of surfing competition as well as opportunities for creative exploration through art, music, dance, athletics and entertainment. In addition, the Menehune Mayhem also recognizes surfers with outstanding sportsmanship, environmental awareness and awards high school students who demonstrate academic excellence. These initiatives are supported through the Ian Walsh Menehune Mayhem Foundation, whose mission is to support activities and events that encourage the youth of Maui to:
- maximize their potential in surfing, fitness and healthy living
- cultivate their talents in communication through the arts and academics
- care for and champion the natural environment of their island home
