Amazing Surf Adventures, a community program that utilizes surfing to help others overcome a particular life challenge, is hosting Operation Surf Central Coast 2014, October 6th through the 12th.
This year’s surf event is for the “severely wounded active duty and veteran service members from various branches of the U.S. military who served in Afghanistan and Iraq will take part in an epic life-changing experience at beaches across the Central Coast,” according to the website.
It goes on to say, “Through the healing power of the ocean and surfing, these wounded heroes to whom we owe so much, will overcome challenges and build a new understanding of their life’s potential.”
“For many participants, the trip to Operation Surf is their first time leaving the hospital since being injured in Iraq or Afghanistan, making this unique and highly effective healing tool an invaluable part of their early recovery. At previous Operation Central Coast events, the wounded heroes have been astounded at the outpouring of love and appreciation from the Santa Cruz community and its many volunteers.”
