Our Mission

Waves of Impact is dedicated to providing access to the healing and therapeutic power of the ocean to individuals with exceptional challenges. Our mission is to foster growth, self-esteem, and wellness through adaptive surfing. We strive to create an inclusive and safe space for our participants, and to provide the highest quality of surf and ocean-based therapy to those in need.

Waves of Impact is dedicated to providing individuals facing exceptional challenges with the opportunity to experience the exhilaration of riding waves, while also focusing on building and rebuilding confidence in those who need it most.

Families with children who have special needs often encounter extraordinary obstacles, resulting in social isolation. Our surfing and beach experiences are designed to cater to the entire family, providing an opportunity for individuals and families to connect and form supportive friendships.

Waves of Impact also dedicates itself to providing surfing experiences for wounded veterans, recognizing the healing power of the ocean and the importance of serving those who have served our country.

Based in Oceanside, CA, Waves of Impact operates as a volunteer organization and offers free surf camps in California, Texas, Massachusetts, and New Jersey. Our exceptional volunteers are present on the beach and in the water to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all participants.

All surf camps are provided at no cost to participants, and we do not seek contributions from the families we serve. Waves of Impact is committed to making a positive impact on the lives of those facing exceptional challenges, one wave at a time.
