Operation Surf

It started with a mission

Operation Surf came into existence as a result of one wounded hero’s desire to learn to surf. That hero, a Navy Corpsman, was being treated at the Brooke Army Medical Center when he met Janis Roznowski of Operation Comfort, another organization dedicated to helping our wounded heroes heal.

Operation Surf is an epic, life-changing adventure for our wounded veteran and active duty military heroes. Our program is one of a kind, bringing participants directly to our events within supportive coastal communities, and exposing them to the healing power of the ocean through adaptive surfing taught by world-class instructors. This weeklong, all-inclusive event provides an environment where participants work to overcome perceived limitations connected to their physical and psychological disabilities.
