A local Pismo Beach nonprofit organization, AmpSurfTM, has been aiding the disabled community for ten years through a very unique rehabilitation program. By combining the healing power found in nature, specifically from the Pacific Ocean, with the physical challenge of adaptive surfing, AmpSurfTM has been able to give disabled veterans, adults and children the ability to focus on their capabilities instead of their disabilities. Through specialized Learn to Surf Clinics, the organization allows their participants to feel physically and mentally whole in a way that is unmatched by other programs.
A special event is being held April 30th through May 4th, 2014 bringing the best of San Luis Obispo County together for a surf and wine event benefiting AmpSurfTM. Wine, Waves & Beyond combines Pismo Beach’s classic surf culture with San Luis Obispo’s unique wine country, creating four days of fun taking place at various scenic venues across San Luis Obispo County.
