WHO ARE WE?

A Walk On Water is a family of watermen sharing the therapeutic powers of the ocean with those in need. AWOW's primary goal is providing relief to families of children with special needs. We are a humanitarian and environmentally conscious organization with an eye on sustainability.

 

WHAT DO WE DO?

AWOW provides water therapy through guided surf instruction or “surf therapy”.  Surfing's physical and repetitive nature produces a therapeutic effect and helps build self confidence.  Children experience the true stoke of surfing and a renewed sense of accomplishment as family and friends cheer them on from the beach.  Often shadowed by their special needs brother or sister siblings are also encouraged to participate.  Our surf events focus on both the athletes and their families, who are treated to a well-deserved day of relaxation and pampering.

6.21.17 | "GOOD FORTUNE"

The film takes viewers on a road trip through John Paul DeJoria’s life as a serial entrepreneur, philanthropist, business leader and mentor. A true “rag-to-riches” story.

 

Good Fortune tells his inspiring story and shows how he uses business to make the world a better place. Our corporate culture has always been a reflection of John Paul’s personal values, and the new documentary proves that the greatest secret to success is sharing your Good Fortune. And as JP would say, “Success Unshared Is Failure”.

 

You can pre-order the film at iTunes, or better yet, make a family trip to a theater showing near you to learn about how these core values have helped mold his entrepreneurial success. Please see below for the 10-city theatrical release schedule and link to pre-order the documentary on iTunes.

WHO SAID SURFING AT A WALK ON WATER EVENTS IS JUST FOR KIDS?

Dear A Walk On Water,

We are so full of gratitude to you and everyone at A Walk On Water. Thank you for the experience that is truly healing for my family.  It's our first time to attend an AWOW event and we did not know what to expect from AWOW but every volunteer welcomed us and made our day a unique experience that we will cherish. From the moment our van pulled into the parking lot, the volunteers assisted us and catered to our every question. It was such a pleasure to meet Pat, Sean, and the many surf instructors who took my twins Christian and Christopher out for some surf therapy. Smiles are plastered on my face (and my family) as we watch our boys catch some waves. Somehow, I too (the mama bear of my twin cubs) managed to experience catching a few waves with Adam Knox. To be able to experience what my twins are experiencing, is enlightening. I agree that there is healing power in  surfing. Surfing is an activity that encourages people to clear their mind and learn how to experience nature. It embraces personal qualities that are important to everyday life, including patience, perseverance, strength, insight and most of all confidence and fun. I owe that enlightenment to AWOW. Many thanks for all that you do. 

Warmly,

Nadine, Charles, Christian & Christopher

p.s. 

No words cannot express how grateful we are for smiles and the experience they gave my twins. A therapeutic experience that beats all the therapies they do 7 days a week. Many thanks to Adam Knox for giving me that chemical cocktail of a surf stoke.  We look forward to many more waves to catch in the future!
