Who We Serve
AmpSurf operates through 4 chapters in the United States located in; California, New England, New York and the Pacific Northwest. These chapters have been developed to reach the one in five Americans living with a life-long disability and those that come to us from around the world. These Men, Women and children are looking for ways to feel whole again and to fit into ‘normal’ life. Whether they are an amputee, visually impaired, suffer from PTS (post traumatic stress), or have quadriplegia. Whether they served in Vietnam, the Gulf war, Iraq or Afghanistan. Whether they are an autistic child or a young woman who has lost a limb to cancer, AmpSurf™ offers a unique all inclusive program to bring the healing power of the ocean through adaptive surf therapy to these individuals for an experience that is both mentally and physically rewarding. AmpSurf™ has provided our Adaptive Learn to Surf program to thousands of disabled veterans, adults and children who probably never would have had this experience if it hadn’t been for our program.
Our goal is simple, we want to help our disabled veterans, adults and children focus on their abilities not their disabilities. To do this we strive to Promote, Inspire, Educate, and Rehabilitate (PIER™) these great Americans and the public by providing a quality program and the opportunity for the participants and volunteers to come together and feel the joy and healing of the ocean and surfing. AmpSurf™ has provided our Learn to Surf Clinics to hundreds of our disabled veterans, adults and children who probably never would have had this experience if it hadn’t been for our program.
* The U.S. Census reports that 20% of Americans (66 million) are living with a lifelong disability or condition in the U.S. alone!
* The U.S.Census also reports that 6.2% of children between the ages of 5 and 15 (2.8 million) have a disability.
* Activity Alliance reported in 2018 and 2019 that the disabled are twice as likely to be in active, yet 7 in 10 (70%) are motivated to be more active to maintain or improve their health.
