Surfing lessons for those who are visually impaired

This is an opportunity frankly I don't know a lot about, but I thought if anyone was in the greater New York area and was interested, they could reach out and investigate this themselves. I'm just sharing the info. 



Hello Everyone, Lisa Innella here,


I just wanted to let you know that for the 3rd year in a row Surf for All will be hosting surf lessons for individuals who are blind or visually impaired in Long Beach. You do not have to be registered with Camp Abilities to attend, it is open to anyone who has a visual impairment and IT'S FREE! However, you do need to RSVP to me by July 5th. Spread the word to your friends! 


We have had a lot of success with this event in the past and it truly is an amazing experience for everyone who attends. So bring your beach towel and bathing suit and get ready to catch a wave!


THE ATTACHED FLIER HAS ALL OF THE INFORMATION YOU NEED ABOUT THE EVENT. 


I hope to see you on the beach on July 11th!
