October 7th-10th, 2011 disabled veterans, police and firefighters, along with other adults & children with disabilities will travel to Pismo Beach, California to experience the healing power of the ocean and the thrill of surfing. Many of these Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, & Marines lost limbs, were burned, have a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or have PTSD from serving in operations overseas. Our police and firefighter heroes were injured here at home in the line of duty. All will come to experience something most thought they could not do. AmpSurf’s trained instructors, along with professional and local surfers will provide surf instruction for Operation Restoration.
This marks the sixth year of our Operation Restoration event, and the ninth year AmpSurf has been putting these events together. AmpSurf’s goal is to Promote, Inspire, Educate, and Rehabilitate through the healing power of the ocean and adaptive surfing. AmpSurf’s events have grown from only from serving only a few to now serving over 300 people a year.
