When they say that things in life happen for a reason they are right. I finally boarded on my plane back from a quick vacation from Hawaii where I met a group of amazing surfers. They were all super excited to once again be on the road and talking over and over about the event they were going to do. Out of curiosity I asked and was surprised with such an answer. They take time off their daily lives to travel here and help kids with autism surf. I quickly barged them with questions and was determined to make it to at least one event. They befriended me with their aloha spirit and I quickly was captured by the numerous kids smiles. When I got to the event I was in awe in how a simple surf lesson could really effect these kids. The families, friends, volunteers and everyone around could not help but feel the love around us. I quickly learned about the history of this non-profit foundation. A father (Izzy) who's son is autistic learned to deal with his sun by taking him surfing and spread that joy around the US by helping others like his own. I think that in the mist of this world; where at this moment politics , disasters, royalty scandals seem to speak louder than an amazing event like this. I wanted something like this that still is small but done with great big hearts should be known. They deserve a story; they are the true inspirations. They are our reality.
This is a quick video I made! Check them out & lets make this big!
