Surfing Madonna Oceans Project will be allocating a part of the proceeds from the annual Surfing Madonna 5K/10K/15K Beach Run to fund this INCREDIBLE, FREE program for disabled adults and veterans. We will be using our Floating Beach Wheelchairs, if necessary, to get the participants in the water beyond the waves. From there, you can choose to learn to surf in the white wash by a skilled waterman, get out of the chair and swim or snorkel, or you can choose to kick back in the chair and float taking in the breathtaking views of the coastline from the ocean. No surfing or swimming skills required for participants, however, participants must be comfortable with being in the water.

The age requirement is 18+ and all disabilities across the spectrum are welcome…

  • Floating beach wheelchairs
  • Professional watermen & volunteer support team

What to bring:

  • Wetsuit (optional, but recommended)
