Making waves at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital!
Waves Surf Academy has offered several free surf events to the 🤸♀️👼children of Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital and during each event there was more or less children. Eric Dernick the founder of WSA contacted JDCH to find out why some events were busier then others. The hospital explained that the children's blood count levels must be at a certain point for the patients to leave the hospital. With this being said Eric wanted to create a way for surfing to be brought to the children at the hospital. That is when Eric came up with the idea to create a children's surfing book in collaboration with the Art institute of Fort Lauderdale. Today we had the opportunity to bring surfing to the children at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. We provided a surfing demonstration, reading of our book, live music & a donated surf board to the hospital!! Special thanks to everyone that came out!!
