Hi friends check out my board I donated to the Surfer’s Healing – a foundation for autism. My stepson has Autism so this was a very personal piece for me.
Surfers Healing was founded by Israel and Danielle Paskowitz. Their son, Isaiah, was diagnosed with Autism at age three. Like many autistic children, he often suffered from sensory overload–simple sensations could overwhelm him. The ocean was the one place where he seemed to find respite. A former competitive surfer, Israel hit upon an idea–with Isaiah on the front of his surfboard, and Israel steering from the back, the two spent the day surfing together.
Surfing had a profound impact on Isaiah. Israel and Danielle decided they wanted to share this unique therapy with other autistic children. They began to host day camps at the beach where autistic children and their families could be exposed to a completely new experience of surfing.
I am so honored to have been able to donate to such a worthy cause!
