Surf For All Helps Blind Surfers Hang Ten

Aug 02 2011

Surf For All, an organization based in Long Island, N.Y., was originally formed to teach children with autism how to surf.  This past year, the group has expanded to help wounded warriors returning from Iraq and Afghanistan as well as children with disabilities, including the blind.  Megan Fink, an 11th grader from Seaford, L.I., says, “To me, it’s like flying.  When you are on the board, you are just standing up and you feel the wind and the water…it’s amazing.”  The program helps its participants feel part of a group, building their confidence to accomplish the unthinkable.  Surfing is considered a daunting sport to many, but the children of Surf For All show inspiration to anyone afraid to try it. We love what they’re doing!!  Watch the video! Surfing Blind
