Surfers Healing was founded by Israel and Danielle Paskowitz. Their son, Isaiah, was diagnosed with autism at age three. Like many children with autism, he often suffered from sensory overload– simple sensations could overwhelm him. The ocean was the one place where he seemed to find respite. Virginia Beach has hosted the Surfers Healing Team for the past 6 years. Each year has been a huge success thanks to the sea of support from our many Community Partners, Sponsors and Volunteers.
