About the Event
We're looking for selfless and compassionate volunteers to share this amazing experience with our participants. Water awareness and knowing how to surf is a plus, but absolutely not needed to be a part of this program. We ask that volunteers are 15 and older, unless accompanied by an adult.
Water Volunteers: Anyone may sign up to be in the water as a lead surfer, board catcher, pusher, or on the safety team. Volunteers in this category must be diligent and aware of all surfers and their surroundings in the water, as safety is our biggest priority. Our surf teams consist of 1 lead surfer and 2-3 assistants to help push and ride a wave in with a camper. First time and novice volunteers will be placed on a team with experienced surfers. Volunteers who wish to participate on the safety team will be responsible for watching the surfers, and making sure their path remains clear of anyone in the water. You may be needed to assist in catching a board from time to time in shallow water.
Beach Volunteers: This is the perfect area for anyone who wishes to remain dry and interact with the families on the beach. Roles include registration and check-in, t-shirt distribution and sales, rash guard fitting and retrieval, medal distribution, lunch and snack preparations, and spending time with our youth on the beach as they await their surf time.
Photographers: If you have a professional camera and love capturing ear to ear smiles, then this is the place for you! While living in the moment is precious, having lasting memories on film are priceless. We want our families, friends, participants and volunteers to have an opportunity to relive these once in a lifetime events over and over again.
