Our Goal is to Promote, Inspire, Educate, and Rehabilitate people with disabilities, especially our veteran heroes through adaptive surfing and fun, safe, outdoor activities that all can participate in.
One in five Americans struggle with a lifelong disability and nearly two million men and women have served our country in Iraq and Afghanistan and are coming home looking for ways to feel whole again and to fit back in to 'normal' life. Whether they are an amputee, blind, suffer from PTSD, have quadriplegia, or suffer from a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Whether they served in WWII, Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf war, Iraq or Afghanistan. Whether they are a child of autism, or a young woman who has lost a limb to Cancer, AmpSurf offers a unique program to bring the healing power of the ocean and adaptive surfing together for an experience that is both mentally and physically one of the rehabilitating.
For 9 years, AmpSurf has been providing learn to surf clinics to serve those who need it. They have served hundreds of our disabled veterans American heroes as well as disabled adults and children who probably never would have had this experience if it hadn't been for the program.
Over the past two years, WW&B has raised $26,000 for AmpSurf, and they are excited to continue to support this amazing organization.
