I have been a big part of this event since the start 4 years ago and it gets better each year. I took some photos of the event, surfing, beach, events etc. I hope this story is seen my thousands to spread the word.
TheraSURF is born by Jimmy Gamboa and his wife Kim with the help of their friends and family. TheraSURF helps heal children with special needs by taking them into the ocean to catch some waves. TheraSURF focuses a close attention to the intimate involvement with each kid and their families and close friends so all can share in the healing of the ocean together. There is nothing stronger than family and friends and to incorporate that with the power of surfing is an unbelievable experience and a sure thing.
