Please help us to continue to provide the experience of a lifetime for these Special Surfers and their families by considering a donation. Your donation allows us to continue to run these events at no cost to our surfers.

Every contribution helps Special Surfers to meet their mission of giving special needs children the opportunity to expand their world and abilities by learning to surf.  

Registration fills up for every event. We do our best to accommodate the wait list each time. The limiting factor is the number of boards and wetsuits that are available. Although local surf shops have been wonderful partners they don’t know until the day of each event how many boards they have available to loan. By having dedicated Special Surfer equipment we can not only offer more registration slots but we can ensure that we have the equipment that is best suited to the success and safety of our Special Surfers.

Are you part of corporation or foundation or perhaps an individual looking to make a more substantial contribution?  Our ultimate Special Surfer wishlist item is an enclosed aluminum trailer (8’ 5”x20’  7’ tall) with custom racks ($12,000).  This trailer would enable us to store and transport the equipment for Special Surfers events.  More efficient setup and cleanup means more volunteer time spent directly with the kids.  Better care of the equipment means it will last longer and enable more Special Surfers to benefit for years to come.  What a great place to display your business logo at each event to be seen by hundreds of volunteers and community spectators!  Please email for more information.
