YOUR QUESTIONS, ANSWERED

How do I sign up a surfer? 
Surfing With Smiles is a program for those with special needs and disabilities. To sign a surfer up, please visit and “Like” our Facebook page and click on the events to see when the sign up form will be posted. Sign ups are limited to 80 surfers per event and on a first-come, first-served basis. Be sure to follow us on Facebook to sign up, as we anticipate these will fill up quickly.

Sign ups are as follows: sign ups open on May 21 for the June 18 event, July 2 for the July 23 event, and July 30 for the August 20 event

How will I know if I made it on the list?
Within 48 hours of signing up you will receive an email with additional details if you have a surfer on the list. If you need to cancel your sign up, please email us as soon as you can, as we can open this space to others.

How do I volunteer?
You do not need to sign up to volunteer at our event. Please arrive at 12th Street no later than 4:15 p.m. on the day of the event.  We need all the help we can get, so please help spread the word! Feel free to reach out if you have any questions on volunteering. 

Where can I find event updates?

What do I need to bring?
Please come in a bathing suit or wetsuit (if you have one!) and bring a towel. Or, if you’d rather help with beach games, a bathing suit is not required.
