H30 is our strategy for the future. It's a simple equation. Salt Water (Our Culture) + Clean Water (Our Cause) + Living Water (Our Community). SALT WATER (Our Culture)

We've spent most of our lives in love with the ocean. Sand. Surfing. BBQ's. Skateboarding. Riding Bicycles. Hanging out. Roasting Coffee. Playing Music. Anytime I have lived farther than walking distance to wake up and go surf I freak out. This is our culture.


Over Billion people don't have it. We use our culture and all the influence we have to develop and build sustainable solutions for Palmercito, El Salvador. We have been doing clean water work there for a few years now and in 2018 we will install our 1st solar powered Desalination Project in Palmercito that will use solar energy to produce 500+ gallons a day of clean drinking water for the entire community.

LIVING WATER (Our Community)

All of this is motivated by our love and devotion to Jesus Christ. Beginning in 2017 we will complete H30 as a strategy by starting 2 Living Water Communities that meet on Sunday Evenings. 1 in Palmercito, El Salvador and 1 in Ocean Beach, CA. These are purpose driven churches in design, paradigm, philosophy , training, and network

Since 2013 we have been building a D3 (Decentralized Desalination Device). This device is designed to use sunlight and locally available materials to turn ocean water into clean drinking water in areas of the world that have access and quality problems close to the coast. With nearly 75% of the worlds population living within 25 miles of the coastline this decentralized device can be useful in the world of water as it helps alleviate the stress that will be caused nearly 3 billion people projected to be on our planet in the next 3 decades. With water access and quality already a problem for nearly 1 billion people  we need an unforeseen technology breakthrough to solve this problem. Buckets with Filters can't be made, distributed, and implemented fast enough to keep up with current needs and demand.

We are currently in the Design Process Phase working on our prototype.

Project Principles/Philosophy

1. Its is DECENTRALIZED because water should not be OWNED. Water is a fundamental human right not a commodity.

2. It DESALINATES water because this solves the SUPPLY problem. The earth contains roughly 3% of potable water, therefore we need a device that produces access to unlimited ocean water

3. It is a DEVICE because we need a technology breakthrough that is not PATENTED. This project must remain open source so that it empowers people not profits off them.

4. It is made of readily available local materials of clay and aluminum so it is easily REPRODUCIBLE.

5. It uses sunlight and ocean water to keep in harmony with our ENVIRONMENT.
