Free Adaptive Surfing Events
Surfers Healing is a foundation created to enrich the lives of children with autism and the lives of their families by exposing them to the unique experience of surfing. In 1999, the first Surfers Healing event was held at San Onofre Beach and met with resounding success. Today, Surfers Healing hosts single-day surfing events throughout the United States. These events are free to participants and are well attended, as approximately 200 individuals attend each event. Until a cure is discovered, Surfers Healing is focused on giving a day of relief to the parents and families of autistic children. The goal is to not only expose these children to the therapeutic experience of surfing, but to give them a normal day of fun at the beach.
