VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY. Warrior Surf is running a pilot program this season which would connect surf clinic participants with a veteran mentor/sponsor. If you have COMPLETED a six week camp program and have interest in serving as a sponsor for incoming Veterans please fill out the volunteer form at WarriorSurf.org/VOLUNTEER and mention "Sponsorship Program" in the volunteer notes.
**Training for the program is 24 March from 0800-1000am 🤘🏽
The tribe came together to paddle out on this sunny February morning ☀️
“Actively engage in your community and learn how you can help others,” was Former Marine Sgt. Andrew Manzi’s advice to Crestwood students, as he skyped them from a van in CA.
*Mark your calendars!* Registration begins March 1st for Veteran Surf Camp
sessions April through December 2018.
We've got an amazing season ahead, can't wait to get back out there!
We love the way local @follyhood captures our beautiful little wave at sunset ・・・ Fall light at the Folly Beach Pier.
Our cofounder and @cnnheroes has been in CA with the @annenbergfdn, soaking in all this incredible non-profit school has to offer, and representing our cause out on the west coast 🤙🏽
We’re dreaming of warmer water weather, which is right around the corner. Veteran surf camp sessions will begin again this spring!
“I wouldn’t wanna be anywhere else in the world than the ocean with a Veteran. They know more about the aspects of your life that everyone else in your life knows nothing about. And that’s powerful.” -USMC Veteran
Most tend to agree that there’s a peace and serenity that slowly washes over you when you’re near, in, or submerged under a body of water. More recent research and analysis, such as the work of @wallacejnichols, proves that this is a healing older than any medicine of our modern world. 🌊🌊🌊
“Neuroscientists and psychologists add that the ocean and wild waterways are a wellspring of happiness and relaxation, sociality and romance, peace and freedom, play and creativity, learning and memory, innovation and insight, elation and nostalgia, confidence and solitude, wonder and awe, empathy and compassion, reverence and beauty — and help manage trauma, anxiety, sleep, autism, addiction, fitness, attention/focus, stress, grief, PTSD, build personal resilience, and much more.” -Wallace J. Nichols, Blue Mind
“in keeping with something called self-determination theory, which holds that human beings need three basic things in order to be content: they need to feel competent at what they do; they need to feel authentic in their lives; and they need to feel connected to others.” -Sebastian Junger, Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging .
