2021 SFA Adaptive Surf Camp – Inclusion with Skudin Surf
The program is designed to provide individuals with disabilities the opportunity to experience the healing power of the ocean. Surfing provides a sense of freedom that fosters independence and self-esteem. We have seen surfing enhance overall balance, coordination, and sensory functioning.
Daily Schedule 9 AM to 1 PM:
Land Instruction: Safety – Hands-on instruction will be taught first addressing issues such as: “falling off the board,” “surfacing,” the “leash” that attaches surfers to their boards. We will stress the importance of following instructions. Students will learn the “pop up,” how to jump correctly from a prone position. Finally,we will teach riding techniques that coincide to ability levels.
OCEAN SURF INSTRUCTION:
Related activities: A variety of “beach-side” recreational activities will be provided to allow campers to take breaks and physically recharge from surfing lessons. Each camp day is split between in-ocean and beach-side programs. Specific activities will include art lessons, beach games, social skills and light exercise. Our camp is a community and we want to ensure that each camper interacts with staff members and fellow campers to build a sense of belonging and camaraderie.
IMPORTANT: All participants must fill out and submit a waiver prior to participating. Waivers can be completed and submitted by participants, parents and/or guardians. Campers will not be allowed to participate unless without a waiver to Surf For All.
