"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 (RAW) has helped over 2,500 kids get in the water and have a life changing day at the beach."
Photographing these events and being part of these kids' first ocean experiences is an absolute honor. Their courage and the expressions on their faces as they experience the ocean is an inspiration to me. It is the most fun photography!Slideshows
