Adaptive Surf Clinic


Coming to Rockaway Beach

The AmpSurf Breezy Point Chapter will be hosting a surf clinic on Saturday, August 12 at Beach 82nd Street in Rockaway Beach N.Y. from 9 a.m. - 12 noon.  AmpSurf works with adults, children and veterans with all kinds of disabilities such as: amputation, visual impairments, autism, spinal cord injuries, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI), and Developmental Disabilities.

AmpSurf is a unique surfing program that began in Pismo Beach, California 15 years ago by AmpSurf founder, Dana Cummings. He always says, "There is a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing power of the ocean.” Surfing, he notes, can make the participant become stress hardy and help to manage pain." Cummings has trained a cadre of local surfers and skilled water people in the AmpSurf protocols. Instructors have all been trained in Adult & Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED.

If you are interested in participating in the AmpSurf adaptive surfing clinic, you must go on the web site, and register as a participant for the Rockaway Beach, 82nd Street surf clinic. It is limited to the first 24 participants who sign up on the web site. There will be a $25 deposit to hold your spot that will be refunded if you show up to the surf clinic. The purpose is so that a spot is held for you. If you fail to sign in and attend, the fee is non-refundable.
