Ran into a parent who was raving about this surfing/ ocean experience for special needs kiddos. I was thinking that we should pass it on to whoever we come across that would like a fun-filled day at the beach.
Ride a Wave’s mission is to give children with special needs the chance to feel the thrill of riding a wave and experience a safe, fun-filled day at the beach, whether they are physically, developmentally, or economically challenged.
Since its inception in 1998, Ride a Wave (RAW) has helped over 2,500 kids get in the water and have a life-changing day at the beach with activities including:
A lifeguard demonstration and marine safety orientation
Stretching and sunscreen
Beach obstacle course
Snacks, water, and a hot lunch

All at no cost to any child, organization or individual.
