This year is the second year that Surfers Healing has come to Australia.
Founded by World Champion surfer Izzy Paskowitz 20 years ago, Surfers Healing create powerful experiences with the simple pleasure of taking kids with autism surfing. In their words “We paddle out together on tandem boards to catch the waves that come our way. That’s what we do; that’s what we love”.
It’s really quite special to sit on the beach and take it in. The kids, the parents, the surfers as well as random onlookers become affected by the joy and the sharing of the experience of the ocean and the act of surfing. You can learn more about it here
Today is a very different day to yesterday; wind’s up, it’s clouded over and the swells on the retreat. Good news is the crowds are way down; might be your chance.
