Two surfers

About ASA

Amazing Surf Adventures (ASA) is a non-profit organization, founded by Van Curaza, which develops programs such as Operation Surf and Operation Surf 4 Veterans. Our mission is to help wounded and injured active-duty military and veteran heroes move forward in a positive direction through an epic, life-changing surfing experience that builds confidence and healing. One wave at a time.

We believe this is best accomplished by continuing to provide healthy, alternative recreational options for people with disabilities, disenfranchisements, and various forms of pain. Through the power of surfing, we can help them heal.

“Other groups focus on providing a fun experience surfing, whereas Amazing Surf Adventures (ASA) focuses on creating a positive therapeutic experience that continues to positively impact the participant for life.” – Dr. Russell Crawford
