Surfers for Autism
Deerfield Beach, FL
“We are a 501 (c) (3) not for profit dedicated to the introduction of the sport of surfing to children with special needs. The therapeutic benefits of this activity to children and young adults within the autism spectrum cannot be put into words and must be experienced.
At a Surfers For Autism event, our surfers are provided a safe, fun, judgement free environment where highly skilled surf instructors carefully guide them into waves. Our surfers and their families are treated like rock stars and enjoy a day filled with a range of activities including stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, live music, face-painting, games, fire engine tours and much more. A catered lunch is also provided, all at no cost to registered participants, their families and volunteers.
This is a very special day where children with developmental delays interact with typical peers and wow families with their capabilities.
These events are examples of inclusion at the highest level.”
