THE STOKE FOR LIFE FOUNDATION IS COMMITTED TO SPREADING THE ALOHA SPIRIT THROUGH ADAPTIVE WATERSPORTS
The main goal for the Stoke for Life Foundation is to bring awareness to the rehabilitative benefits of adaptive water sports through clinics and education. Our goals are to introduce these benefits in an effort to advance adaptive water sports and to raise awareness for access to our beach communities for those with disabilities. Stoke for life will host paddle clinics for adaptive paddle boarding and adaptive surfing; these will be free open clinics to further education of adaptive water sports, beach access for the disabled, and the advancements in adaptive water sports equipment. Among other information will be hands-on teaching for volunteers to learn how to handle people with all levels of disabilities and ailments safely in and out of the water.
