Event Details

At a Surfers For Autism event, our surfers are provided a safe, fun, judgement free environment where highly skilled surf instructors carefully guide them into waves. Our surfers and their families are treated like rock stars and enjoy a day filled with a range of activities including stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, live music, face-painting, games, fire engine tours and much more. A catered lunch is also provided, all at no cost to registered participants, their families and volunteers.

This is a very special day where children with developmental delays interact with typical peers and wow families with their capabilities.

    I just received the “Visit Tybee island” pamphlet and it shows the “Coastal Surfers for Autism” as happening in October of 2017. This website shows it happened on Sept 16 of 2017. My reunion will take place in October of 2018. Has a date been established for 2018?

      The Visit Tybee brochures are printed fairly early so they try and guess the date. The Surfers for Autism event is traditionally held in September.

      Hi Angela, you would need to contact the group directly.
