"We recognize moments of awe in our lives, and the lasting and powerful impacts they have. The Skudin Family and Surf for All have harnessed this power of awe, and provide these gifts to our children. We are so fortunate to live near the ocean and the bounty it provides. These children experienced awe in harmony with the waves. We celebrate these moments of joy, courage, and power. To bear witness to these beautiful and inspiring moments is the greatest learning experience. Surf for All provides opportunities to experience love and courage through this program. It was clear and evident on the faces of the children, their adult supporters cheering them from the shoreline, and the compassionate support of the Surf for All staff who put their heart and wisdom into every wave".
