Salt Water, Clean Water, Living Water

Our Goal:

Free Clean Water.
From the Ocean.
For Every Person.

Our 2020 Project will source water from the ocean, convert it to clean, drinkable water, that’s available to everyone, for FREE


1 of 8

people don't have clean water

1 out of every 8 people in the world don't have access to clean drinking water.



Child deaths a day

2,200 children under the age of five are dying every day as a result of water-related diseases.


780 m

Person problem

780 million people in the world don’t have easy access to clean drinking water …soon to be 2-3 Billion people by 2050.


The Problem

We in the U.S. don’t need to think about it because safe water is at our fingertips, but there is a monumental, worldwide water crisis around us. Currently, the lack of clean water is a 1 Billion Person problem…soon to be a 2-3 Billion person problem by 2050.

Statistic from the CDC


We need 3 breakthroughs

1. Sourcing: 97% of the world’s water the exists in the ocean.

2. Technology: We need to make the water drinkable.

3. Delivery: 75% of the world’s population lives within 25 miles of the ocean. Setting up a solution, along the coast will be the the easiest place for people to access the clean water.



2020 Desal Project

We will install a Decentralized Desalination Distributor (Desal) that turns 10,000 gallons of ocean water per day into clean drinking water using solar panels that harnesses the sun’s energy. There’s an endless supply of ocean water and an endless supply of energy from the sun, and we want to use both to provide clean water. For everyone. For free.



This will meet all three of our needed technological breakthroughs: it will source water from the ocean, convert it to clean, drinkable water, in an area that’s easily accessible.

Not only does is create a solution, but it’s a cheap, user-friendly interface that uses completely renewable energy from the sun.



For Free?

We believe that everyone has the right to clean drinking water. This is a groundbreaking concept and we will be one of the first to install it in an impoverished area. Our one condition is that the water remains free for everyone. That means no one can use the system for any kind of monetary gain.




Palmercito, El Salvador

We’ve spent the last 5 years going to Palmercito, El Salvador, to distribute water filters, catch some waves, love on the kids, building relationships, and most importantly eat papusas. Palmercito and the country of El Salvador is experiencing a major water crisis…. Currently, we have seven partners in place to complete this project in Palmercito and have a site picked out to place the Desal system. IT’S GO TIME!





GOAL 1 - Start Small Group of People gathering weekly for Papusas, Surfing & Bible Study that sees Ocean Based Clean Water as way of empowering the people of Palmercito

GOAL 2 - Begin Raising Funds for 2 Year Research Project ($150,000) & Install Solar Powered Desal Shipping Container Producing 10,000 Gallons of clean water per day out of the ocean using solar power (Actual Unit Below)

GOAL 3 - Place Solar Desal Unit on Land Below in Palmercito with our Public and Private Partners - OBbeans, Advanced ES, Wailua Shave Ice, The PEACE Plan, Wine2water, and Vida Victoriosa

GOAL 4 - Begin distribution of Clean Water through Palmar School to Palmercito

GOAL 5 - Collect Daily Data (water production & daily usage) take notes and study best practices within Palmercito

GOAL 6 - Send 2-4 Teams through our Partners a year to Serve & Learn

2020 Desal Project

Our Work in Palmercito, El Salvador is our Beta Test for a Globally Scalable Solution.
