We know you have all been anxiously waiting (as have we) to see when we would be able to get back in the water together again. After much thought and deliberation, a decision has been made in regards to our 2020 season and our Board of Directors wanted to deliver it to you personally via the video below. We love and miss you all!

WALK WITH US

Walk With Us is a snapshot of the lives of three children and their experience with A Walk On Water. We follow JJ (autism and epilepsy), Lexi (blind), and Milo (downs syndrome) through their daily routines, journey to the beach, and experience with the organization on the beach and in the water.

The film offers an unfiltered look at the struggle and transformation that occurs with our AWOW participants and their families. We hope that the film will help shed light on the importance and effectiveness of Surf Therapy and A Walk on Water. We all struggle because we are all humans. It doesn’t matter what your condition is, you can transform because we are all athletes.

He has many obstacles that prevent him at times from having a quality of life, however at our very first event he was smiling, playing with the sand and doing his best to interact with the instructors.
