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.
THIS EVENT WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE WITHOUT THE HELP OF OUR SPONSOR
