Surfing with Smiles gives those with special needs and abilities the chance to learn to surf for free. When Taylor and Lindsey were just 16 years old, they found extreme happiness and enjoyment in surfing, and wanted to give that opportunity to those who may never otherwise have the chance to get in the water with a surfboard.
Now, 11 years later, the event is bigger and better than they could have ever expected. During their 10th anniversary event, there were more than 300 people who joined the event at The Wall in Hampton, NH for surfing, beach games, pizza, and a DJ, and they are so excited to do more of the same for their 11th season.
Surfing with Smiles is a 501(c)3 that survives completely by volunteers, by our support from Cinnamon Rainbows Surf Shop, and by your donations.
For 2020 SWS will need event insurance, event permits, new beach games, and other new equipment to continue to make this event great and free for all participants. Everything helps!
