:: Surfers Healing
Surfers Healing took to the waves yesterday and this morning to share the joys and stoke of surfing with children with autism. It was really something special to watch a frightened child push through their fears, take to the ocean, catch a wave and hit the beach jumping for joy. If you had a chance to witness the children and their parents reaction, it was hard not to be moved. Although Surfers Healing has been touring the US since 1996, it's the first time Izzy and his band of Hawaiian and US Watermen have had the chance to come to Australia. Yesterday the crew spend over 6 hours with over a 150 children in challenging conditions and then backed up again this morning. True heros!
