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.



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.




A WALK ON WATER surf events are currently held only in California and run concurrent to warm weather and favorable surf conditions, which is generally early spring to late fall.  Private surf therapy sessions are available year-round for families willing to brave colder water and less predictable surf.

Athletes who experience additional rounds of surf therapy will often see additional therapeutic benefits, so we recommend you encourage your athletes to experience multiple surf events.  Many families have remarked that their special needs child shows marked improvement in many areas, especially behavioral, after attending a surf therapy event.

As we scale A Walk On Water, we plan to establish multiple regional chapters in other locales, enabling surf therapy to be offered year-round.
