The Surfrider Foundation Georgia Chapter will be tabling at and supporting the 4th Annual Coastal Empire Surfers For Autism Beach Festival on Tybee Island, Georgia.

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

Where: Tybee Island beach pier and pavillion

When: Saturday, September 6, 2014; 9am to 4pm

Those who want to volunteer for the day with Surfer’s for Autism can sign up HERE
