We are all so very grateful to have the opportunity to share the beauty of the ocean.
We wanted to thank the Star Advertiser for the article during their Local Heroes series in December:
Ocean opens to all with director’s help

Under Cara Troy Short’s direction, a band of volunteers assembles on Oahu beaches a few times a month or more to create, as the AccesSurf slogan promises, “an ocean of possibilities” for those who would not normally have a chance to take part in water sports.
“It’s a fun day for the 60 to 80 participants at our monthly Day at the Beach,” Short said. “People almost always meet new friends and everyone socializes. For many it’s a way for them to reset.”
