O’Neill, Newport Surf Camp and Wahoo’s teamed up this past weekend to help kids with Cystic Fibrosis grab a few waves in the fight against Cystic Fibrosis. Salt water is a newly found natural treatment for Cystic Fibrosis, a degenerative disease that causes mucus build up in the lungs and makes it difficult to do the simple act of taking a breath. The idea behind the event was not only to get Cystic Fibrosis kids into the ocean, but also to help to raise awareness for the upcoming fundraiser Pipeline to a Cure in Huntington (July 31st).
Pro surfers Timmy Reyes, Cory Lopez and Alek Parker took a hands on approach in the fight against CF, partnering up with children and pushing them into a few waves. The joy on the kid’s faces was truly remarkable, making the surf experience a huge success not only with the kid’s but with the parents as well.
