Surfers For Autism
Founded in 2008 by a handful of South Florida surfers who realized the impact of surfing’s healing magic on children diagnosed on the autism spectrum. Since that first event, held at Deerfield Beach, Fla., SFA has reached countless participants, families, volunteers, communities, and supporters. With the combined effort, support, understanding, and inspiration of those involved, the magic that comes from loving encouragement and soothing surf is created.
Surfers for Autism has been honored with proclamations by local cities and counties over the years, and the group has been featured in Autism Parenting magazine and in a 2010 “Make a Difference” segment on the NBC Nightly News.
Today SFA hosts events all over the state and abroad. Nearly every event on our tour maxes out by reaching our limit of 200 registered participants, 350 volunteers and as many as 5,000 supporters packing local beaches to witness the wonder and transformation first-hand.
