A Bit About Us

We are a veteran-focused non-profit providing healing through community. We host truly unique combined surfing and wake surfing camps. Each of the multi-day all-inclusive events is fueled by a community of amazing volunteers that introduce current members of the military and veterans, some with disabilities, visible and non-visible, to the surfing community and the health benefits that come from surfing.
We sincerely believe that we are instrumental in helping to break the negative cycle that often surrounds our veteran community by providing a community built on camaraderie, motivation, and memorable opportunities to enjoy active therapeutic hobbies.
