Help Omnisient get Koby Oberholzer to the World Surf League

Personal message

Omnisient believes in developing SA’s young talent. To prove our commitment, we’ve launched a CSI initiative, and Koby is one of the candidates we’re supporting with a monthly contribution to help him realise his potential.

Now we need your help to make it happen!

About Koby
He is genetically wired to follow in the steps of his father, South African surf legend Frankie Oberholzer. From the age of 6, his dream has been to conquer the waves with the same silky-smooth style as his Dad, and become an inspiration to surfers around the world.

The financial climate in SA, coupled with the pandemic, has resulted in brutal challenges for athletes who want to compete internationally.

So this crowdfunding campaign’s intention is to create a sustainable source of income so that Koby is financially self-sufficient and able to participate in the World Qualifying Series events (as below), and make it to the World Surf League.

NEXT EVENTS
