Ocean Experience Surf School Teaches Visually Impaired Students to Surf!

Ocean Experience Surf School and Braille Institute San Diego unite for the 11th annual surf camp for visually impaired students on MOnday, July 18-Wednesday, July 20, 2011. Located at Mission Point and South Mission Beach Jetty, this three day surf camp truly breaks the barriers faced by Braille Institute students.

The focus of this program is to provide the visually impaired students the opportunity to experience the joy and thrill of surfing. With a step-by-step surf skill progression and through the use of adaptive equipment, Braille Institute campers will explore all the fundamentals of surfing, including: balance training on the Indo Board, paddling progression, the "pop up," catching waves, water safety and oceanography.

Through Ocean Experience's surf training program each camper walks away with a newfound sense of confidence. The quality instruction and use of adaptive equipment ensures success for all students, building a sense of accomplishment that in turn, build self-assurance.

The Braille Institute Surf Camp will run from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m., Monday-Wednesday, July 18-20, 2011. For more information about the Braille Institute surf camp, please email Lanette Jorgensen, at or call (619)225-2317.
