AmpSurf is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 2003 in California. Today, AmpSurf has operations in California, New England, and New York with the goal of encouraging injured veterans, adults and children living with disabilities to focus on their abilities through adaptive surfing therapy.  AmpSurf clinics provide a great opportunity for both participants and volunteers to come together and feel the joy and healing of the ocean and the therapeutic effects of adaptive surfing.

AmpSurf began operating in New England at Long Sands Beach in York, Maine in 2011.  Last year, AmpSurf finished up the 2017 season with a very successful clinic at Surfer’s End.  We are happy to announce that with the support of the Town of Middletown, RI, and some local sponsors, AmpSurf will be back at Second Beach on September 15th.
