Who are We?


The Small Things Foundation is a registered Non-Profit Organisation (NPO 297-207) founded in 2022 by Jamie Nye (father, husband, ocean enthusiast & entrepeneur) in Cape Town, South Africa.

The Small Things Foundation was setup to find small solutions to big social problems affecting our community.

In 2023 we identified an urgent need to support & transform an award-winning initiative the Local Surf Lounge Academy which was on the verge of closing down. This project is our current focus until we reach our sustainability goals.

Jamie is working with founder Shuan Solomans & local social justice advocate Shane Lentoor plus a dedicated team of youth leaders who make our Local Surf Lounge Academy possible.
