In August 2020, surf brand Mami Wata announced the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to fund the first book to comprehensively document and celebrate surfing and related street culture in Africa, AFROSURF – The Book. All sales of AFROSURF will raise money for African Surf Therapy projects, Waves for Change and Surfers Not Street Children.

The Kickstarter reached its $30,000 goal within the first few days of going live, which solidified production; the book is expected to ship in December 2020. Any money raised over and above goes directly to Waves for Change and Surfers Not Street Children.
