2016 - 2017
In an effort to help San Luis Obispo veterans, ASA created an extended, concentrated version of Operation Surf. This 6-month program focuses on 4 key areas:
1) Providing Mentorship
2) Supporting Veterans’ Families
3) Creating Brotherhood/Sisterhood
4) Instilling the Peace of Surfing
Operation Surf 4 Veterans is dedicated to 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. At the end of the program, veterans graduate with a new sense of community, and EARN A NEW SURFBOARD AND WETSUIT TO KEEP. ASA began this program in June 2015 with its pilot group, which was hugely successful.
Be sure to look for Operation Surf 4 Veterans along Central Coast beaches in 2017!
This program would not be possible without support from
The George Hoag Family Foundation
