Surf Camp for the Disabled (update)

The Camp was a huge success for the 14th. straight year. Plans for next year are already in the making to celebrate our 15th. year. The “Make Promises Happen” group will be bring their best surfers from the past 10 years to form an All Star Team and each all star will be competing in a surfing competition to see who is the top surfer.  Next Years event will definitely be one that you don’t want to miss.

A huge thanks goes out to everyone that made this years event so successful. Without your help this event would not be possible.


Day one of the Surf Camp for the Disabled was a huge success thanks to the many volunteers that came to the event. Everyone caught nice waves and the kids had some of the biggest smiles I’ve seen in the fourteen years that we’ve been holding these camps.

Day two is today (Monday evening), the fun starts at 6:00 PM and ends around 8:00 PM at avenue G where it meets the beach in Port Aransas. If you haven’t ever participated in this event you have one more chance to do so. All surfing equipment is furnished by Texas Surf Camps.Dad & Daughter
