The Pure Stoke Youth Program provides a safe, fun environment, utilizing the healing energy of the beach and ocean in which these young victims can find an outlet to help them deal with the stress of a family member with cancer. Our program involves a day at the beach with other children who are facing similar situations. The day includes surf lessons and all equipment, ocean and marine biology education as well as “fun” beach activities in setting of a non-intimidating environment staffed by supportive instructors and counselors.
Surfing for Hope was created to help inspire people challenged by cancer through the positive energy of surfing. The success of our Annual Longboard Surf Contest, combined with great community support, encourages us to grow to help even more in the fight against cancer by taking to the water.
We give our sincere thanks for your participation and helping to make our programs a success.
Join us for a special paddle out to honor, celebrate and remember those who have lost their battle with cancer. This event is free to attend and all are welcome.
Please meet at Avila Beach on the north side of Avila Yacht Club at 4:00 for a short ground ceremony followed by 4:20 ocean ceremony.
Thank you again to our presenting sponsor and the volunteer team at Central Coast Home Health & Hospice
