Definition of Wave: (noun) A long body of water curling into an arched form and breaking on the shore.
Definition of Impact: (noun) A change that is a result or consequence of an action or other cause
Waves of Impact was formed to introduce individuals facing exceptional challenges in their lives to the thrill of being in the ocean and riding waves. The ocean has a great way of washing away stress and sensory overload.
In many case these families, children and veterans, are under extreme financial pressure. Waves of Impact strive to not only introduce them to riding waves, but to also show them how relaxing, stress reducing and inexpensive a day at the beach can be.
How and Why Are Your Surf Camps Free?
Our surf camps are made possible by an awesome cadre of local volunteers and the financial generosity of our sponsors. We don’t solicit from the families that we serve and we never will. Although our founders and our volunteers collectively put in thousands of hours a year, no one takes a salary. Our storage facilities and administrative support are donated (thank you Tom, Cory, and everyone at Redrock Security & Cabling). Every dollar that is donated goes directly into funding our surf camps.
We invite you to join us volunteering at a surf camp or donating to make this special experience possible for a family who could really use a great day.
If your family has a child with special challenges and you would like to have them participate please check our events page for upcoming surf camps.
Organized sports might not be a good fit for many of our kids with special challenges. But put them on a surfboard and it’s all smiles. The ocean has a way of washing away stress and minimizing sensory over load. Come join us.
