Special Surfer Night is a program run by Aquaholics Surf Shop every third Tuesday of the summer months. Local surfers and residents generously offer their time to take kids with special needs out surfing for the night. I filmed/covered the entire event and was extremely touched by the work done by all the volunteers. Every kid enjoyed the night, laughing and smiling as they surfed the Maine waves. Thank you to Aquaholics Surf Shop and all the volunteers!
Currently, Aquaholics Surf Shop is looking to raise money to buy more surfboards and wetsuits so that they can take more special needs children out surfing!
