Adaptive Surfing Program Fundraiser

When: Sat., March 26, 2-6 p.m. 2016

Adaptive Expeditions organized this Pour House concert and raffle to benefit disabled athletes. Executive Director of Adaptive Expeditions, Joe Moore, says, “nearly all surf enthusiasts understand that the goal is to get out and feel the Aloha Spirit whatever way is fun, safe, and comfortable given the unique circumstances of each individual.” And the best way to help surfers get out there is by heading out to this concert, which features music by the Bluestone Ramblers, followed by the Lefty Williams Band. Williams, the band’s lead guitar player, has a special connection to the cause — he’s an upper-extremity amputee. Brock Johnson, leader of the Adaptive Surf Project, will also present a documentary about his journey to the 2015 ISA Adaptive Surfing World Championships. Raffle prizes include the Bellyak Prone Kayak and the Bishop Boards SUP. Bellyaks are designed for disabled surfers and the paddleboard has special bracers for lower-extremity amputees. Extra raffle tickets may be purchased for $5 each.
