Founded by one of our very own, Danny Cortazzo, Ride a Wave's mission is to give children with special needs the chance to feel the thrill of riding a wave and experience a safe, fun-filled day at the beach, whether they are physically, developmentally or economically challenged.

Since its inception in 1998, Ride a Wave has helped over 2,500 kids get in the water and have a life changing day at the beach with activities including: beach obstacle course, boogie boarding, kayaking, tandem surfing, and an inspirational awards ceremony.
