We're always fans of taking kids outside. This lats week, as a part of Lib Tech’s 3rd Annual surf contest, Traditions, more than $2,000 was raised in effort to get kids outside and on the water. Local kids hit the beach on Saturday for free lessons and surf camp.
The camp, hosted by Warm Current, started the with pre-surf warm up on the beach which included stretching and dry land pop-up techniques. Next, kids took to the waves where instructors pushed them into waves and offered assistance in the water.
Warm Current is a nonprofit organization that began back in 2009 with a mission to get kids outside. It all started when a group of friends gathered recycled wetsuits and sent them to surf-focused youth development programs in Peru, Chile and Mexico. After gathering generous donations from surf shops like Cleanline and Seaside Surf Shop, the idea took off to host local surf camps for kids across the west coast. They now host surf camps all up and down beaches along the Pacific Northwest, giving kids that otherwise would never have had the chance to go surfing.
The money raised from the event will go towards the purchase of new surf gear including wetsuits, boards and accessories for the further development of surf camps along coastal communities.
