The Surfer’s for Autism Festival is a new charity event for special needs kids in Palm Beach County. Surfing is potentially a great activity for kids with Autism. It’s peaceful, athletic, and has a built in community of people that can help kids with Autism socialize. Obviously, though, there is a bit of a learning curve, and that is where events like this come in. It’s a good for step for those learning how to surf as well as an ideal way for more established surfers, kids with Autism, and parents of kids to meet.
If you are an adult with autism or a parent/guardian of a child with autism who would like to take part in the surfing instruction, please click here.

Surfers For Autism
Surfers for Autism was 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 was created.
