The calming breeze gently flowing through the infinite blue sky on a crisp afternoon. The soothing, rhythmic sound of waves crashing while a golden sunlight reflects off the surf from above. Every person should feel empowered to experience the therapeutic effects that the beach can deliver – even those with physical limitations.
In 2006, equipped with nothing more than a few pickup trucks, a small toolbox and a mountain of determination – a small team of dedicated individuals set out to create a program designed to aid those with physical limitations to get back into the water. Those humble beginnings created AccesSurf, a non-profit organization that has made life-changing impacts on countless members of our community
2021 marks the 15th anniversary for the group which has grown exponentially – hosting more than 40 events each year and organizing over 2,500 ocean experiences annually. This Hawaiian-born organization of nearly 900 volunteers is committed to helping enrich the lives of the physically disabled in our communities.
