Operation Surf Huntington Beach Begins

6/3/18

This event is held in support of the men and women who have sacrificed so much to protect our freedom. Wounded active-duty and veteran service members from various branches of the U.S. military will take part in an epic life-changing experience at beaches across the Huntington Beach area. Through the healing power of the ocean, surfing, and camaraderie, these wounded heroes, to whom we owe so much, will overcome challenges and build a new understanding of their personal potential.

For many participants, the trip to Operation Surf is their first time leaving the hospital since being injured in Iraq or Afghanistan, making this unique and highly effective healing tool an invaluable part of their early recovery. At previous Operation Surf Huntington Beach events, the wounded heroes have been astounded at the outpouring of love and appreciation from the Huntington Beach community and its many volunteers. Several opportunities exist for community involvement.

The help of our local community members is what makes this entire event possible. Volunteers at the beach, in the water, and in other key support roles are an invaluable component of our cause. We invite you to be a part of this amazing surf adventure June 3 through 9, 2018.
