Operation Restoration 6 Operation Restoration XII  – September 7-12, 2017

 

September 7-12, 2017 injured and disabled veterans, along with other adults & children with disabilities will gather in Pismo Beach to experience the healing power of the ocean and the thrill of surfing. All will come to experience something most thought they could not do.
AmpSurf’s trained instructors, along with professional and local surfers will provide surf instruction for the Learn to Surf Clinics. The fun begins on Thursday, September 7th with a Meet & Greet dinner at the Pismo Beach Moose Lodge. Friday, September 8 will be a surf day and kayaking in Shell Beach, Saturday, September 9th will open with a special flag ceremony and guest speakers. Sunday, September 10th is a surf day to practice what you learned the day before! The morning of Monday, September 11th we will hold a Paddle Out. Monday night will be our Farewell Dinner at the Oceano Elks Lodge.   Participants will also enjoy outdoor activities on the Central Coast and wonderful meals provided by our generous community.

Some of our past participants and volunteers had this to say about their experience after learning to surf with AmpSurf:

“…I finally feel like I am able to do a sport again, after just about giving up on everything. It was very rewarding! Thanks again!” Wounded Warrior Andrew M.

“As a first time volunteer I didn’t know what to expect. My day helping disabled veterans is one I’ll never forget. It was so emotional, I was thrilled and honored to be there. I can’t wait to volunteer again soon.” – Volunteer Josh C.
