Parents: We highly encourage you to bring your family down to the beach at 8am and stay all day with us. We provide breakfast, lunch, and healthy snacks and drinks, along with art, yoga, music, and more! It truly is an entire rejuvenating day at the beach for the whole family.

Please RSVP for each person in your party, including all Athletes, Parents/Guardians, Family Members/Friends, using the categories as indicated below.

Athlete: Please choose ONE preferred surf session time and RSVP for the number of surfing Athletes in your party.  This time will be your assured Surf Therapy session time, but generally there is time for your Athlete(s) to surf multiple times with us throughout the day.

Parent/Guardian/Guest: Please RSVP with the number of non-surfing parents/guardians/family members/friends who will be attending the event. We need to have EVERYONE in your party accounted for, so we can assure we have enough lunch for all all attendees.

Volunteer:  Each volunteer (18 and older) must register an account on the website and RSVP individually. Minors should be listed as guests of Parent/Guardian. Please RSVP in ONE category that matches the area in which you most prefer to volunteer throughout the day. If your category is filled and you do not wish to help in any of the open categories, please fill out the Wait List form (at bottom of page), indicating the category in which you’d like to help. As space permits, we will fill any cancellations from the Wait List. NOTE: First-time volunteers should select the “Volunteer: Beach Operations” or “Volunteer: Greeter/Family Liaison” categories.

 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR WATER-BASED VOLUNTEER POSITIONS:

and the Athletes get safely in and out of the water. You will get wet. Applicants
should be comfortable carrying athletes and surfboards in and out of the water.
Wetsuits and booties recommended. Applicants should be at least 16 years or
older. Exceptions can be made for especially strong applicants and those who
have done the position before.

Water Safety is an in-water position, where you can expect to be out in the surf,
treading water for the entire length of the event (approximately 4-5 hours). This
position requires you to be an excellent swimmer with high endurance. Your
responsibility is to assist Surf Therapists and Athletes after exiting the wave, and
provide a safe environment in the water. You are expected to be capable of
treading water for a sustained period of time, swimming quickly, lifting and
carrying a person, and capable of lifting an adult athlete back up onto a surfboard
while in the water. Applicants must have attended a safety training, be at least 18

Surf Therapists must be excellent surfers and have previous experience
surfing with athletes who have special needs or disabilities. All Surf Therapists
