The ocean is said to help in healing wounds, both externally and emotionally. The unexplainable wonders of riding a wave and spending a day at the beach can make everything see a bit easier. There is something very soothing bout being in the ocean.

Waves of Impact introduces individuals facing exceptional challenges the thrill of riding waves, but also focus on building and rebuilding confidence in those who need it most.

Why We Exist


Families who have children with special challenges face extraordinary hurdles. Often times the kids and their families are isolated from those around them by the circumstances they face.

Through our surfing and the beach experience for the entire family, Waves Of Impact fosters friendship and support for these families.


We are a 100% volunteer organization and based in Oceanside, CA. We hold free surf camps in California, Texas, and New Jersey.


Our volunteers and exceptional men and women both on the beach and in the water.

These highly devoted volunteers are awesome at making our new surfers and their families feel comfortable. They are the core of our surf clinics, and we are very fortunate to have their help.

Surf camps are provided at no cost to the participants. We don't solicit from the families that we serve.

Funding comes from a variety of sponsors and business and individual contributions.

If you’d like to make these camps happen, please visit our sponsorship or donation page. They are what make these camps happen.

If you’d like to volunteer on the beach or in the water, please visit our volunteer page.
