Surfers Healing This Month

As I posted in March (, Surfers Healing will be coming to Wrightsville Beach later this month (Aug. 19).  I know that the sign up is quite intense—some families log on at 12:01 a.m. to try to reserve a spot!  Good luck to those who succeeded; keep tabs on the Surfers Healing website for videos.  No doubt local newspapers will also feature coverage of this heartwarming event.

I just read about another surfing school in NC—Indo Jax Surf and Kiteboard School, with locations in Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach, Topsail Island, and Oak Island.  They also help groups with disabilities, from vision impairments to Wounded Warriors.  Check out their website for more information.

Let me know if you’re one of the lucky ones to participate in Surfers Healing and how it goes for your child!
