Who are we

Surfers for Autism was founded in 2008 by a handful of South Florida surfers who realized the  impact of surfing’s healing magic on children diagnosed on the autism spectrum. Since that first event, held at Deerfield Beach, Fla., SFA has reached countless participants, families, volunteers, communities and supporters. With their support, understanding and inspiration, helps create the magic that comes from loving encouragement and soothing surf.

Surfers for Autism has been honored with proclamations by local cities and counties over the years, and the group has been featured in Autism Parenting
magazine and in a 2010 “Make a Difference” segment on the NBC Nightly News.

Our Mission

The mission of Surfers For Autism is to unlock the potential of people with developmental delays and to support advocacy for autism issues. The SFA focus is to eliminate stigma through public education and awareness and to unite communities through volunteerism. Visit Surfers for Autism on Facebook for more information. 2019 surf season schedule will be published in the coming days.
