Lucky Sevan

Se·​van | \ sə- ‘vān 

Biographical and Geographical name

  1. Armenian origin meaning Life Giving Sweet Water.
  2. Lake Sevan ( Sevana lič) is the largest lake in Armenia. It is one of the largest freshwater high-altitude lakes in the world. 
  3.   Destiny Number is 7.

From its modest beginnings in the summer of 2005, the notion was born in the minds of two humble engineering college students feeling compelled to mentor two disadvantaged young men in their community, and share their love of surfing in San Diego, between long and grueling semesters. Surfing provided a sense of peace, much needed rejuvenation, and a clearer perspective unlike that found in any other activity.


Lucky Sevan was formally named in 2007, when Evan Rogers, Paul Miller, and Todd Skinner went to work inviting young people to the program with the sole purpose of strengthening and empowering them through one-on-one mentoring. Today, the Lucky Sevan Foundation continues to thrive with over 500 adult volunteer mentors and 1,400 youth served – and counting – in their youth leadership retreat surf camps over the years.
