Operation Surf Santa Cruz 2017

BROUGHT TO YOU BY TOYOTA

Amazing Surf Adventures is excited to announce  Operation Surf Santa Cruz, taking place March 30th through April 5th, 2017! This event is held in support of the men and women whom have sacrificed so much to protect our freedom. Severely wounded active duty and veteran service members from various branches of the U.S. military who served in Afghanistan and Iraq will take part in an epic, life-changing experience at beaches across the Santa Cruz coast. Through the healing power of the ocean and surfing, these wounded heroes, to whom we owe so much, will overcome challenges and build a new understanding of their personal potential.

For many participants, the trip to Operation Surf is their first time leaving the hospital since being injured in Iraq or Afghanistan, making this unique and highly effective healing tool an invaluable part of their early recovery. At previous Operation Surf Santa Cruz events, the wounded heroes have been astounded at the outpouring of love and appreciation from the Santa Cruz community and its many volunteers. Several opportunities exist for community involvement

The help of our local community members is what makes this entire event possible.

When our wounded heroes arrive at the airport to hundreds of supporters waving American flags and holding signs thanking them for their service, it sets the tone for the entire week. Volunteers at the beach, in the water and at other key support roles are an invaluable component of our cause. Click the volunteer link above if you would like to help out!

Operation Surf 4 Veterans 2016

Amazing Surf Adventures is hosting Operation Surf 4 Veterans throughout Fall of 2016, October 17th through the 23rd.

The immense success of our weeklong surfing clinics for our active duty wounded heroes motivated us to take an even closer look at our local vets in need. Operation Surf 4 Veterans (OS4V) aims to unite local veterans of San Luis Obispo County by focusing on four (4) elements of sustained recovery: 1) Mentorship; 2) Family Support; 3) Brotherhood; and 4) Surfing (as a healthy, recreational outlet).

This six-month program is dedicated providing the opportunity for a class of ten veterans to bond, keep each other accountable, move forward in life with a new perspective and surf. Educational ocean trainings, mentorship, and a new found brotherhood are the tools for the continued recovery of our country’s heroes.

ASA began this program in June 2015 with its pilot group, which was hugely successful.

The help of our local community members is what makes this entire event possible.

Each class is supported by a mentor who provides guidance and leadership throughout the six-month program. Mentors are veterans and motivated, inspirational leaders with the ability to perform administrative work. This includes coordinating surfing and learning activities, recommending and supporting lifestyle changes, and documenting lessons learned.

We are thrilled to announce the 2nd Annual Operation Surf Cocoa Beach, Florida in March 2016. Every location we add to the circuit allows us to help more wounded heroes. We are excited to offer you the opportunity to be a sponsor, volunteer, or supporter during the second wave of Operation Surf Cocoa Beach.

Operation Surf Cocoa Beach 2016 will take place from March 1st through the 7th. Severely wounded active duty and veteran service members from various branches of the U.S. military who served in Afghanistan and Iraq will take part in an epic life-changing experience. Through the healing power of the ocean and surfing, these wounded heroes, to whom we owe so much, will overcome challenges and build a new understanding of their personal potential.

For many participants, the trip to Operation Surf is their first time leaving the hospital since being injured in Iraq or Afghanistan, making this unique and highly effective healing tool an invaluable part of their early recovery. During the event, they receive support from not just our team, but from the community of Cocoa Beach.
