“Surfers Healing strives to enhance the lives of kids with special needs, specifically those with autism.”
Surfers Healing was founded by San Clemente California natives Israel and Danielle Paskowitz. Their son, Isaiah, was diagnosed with autism at age three. Like many autistic children, he often suffered from sensory overload – simple sensations could overwhelm him. The ocean was the one place where he seemed to find respite. A former competitive surfer, Israel hit upon an idea – with Isaiah on the front of his surfboard, and Izzy steering from the back, the two spent the day surfing together. Surfing had a profound impact on Isaiah. Israel and Danielle decided they wanted to share this unique therapy with other autistic children. They began to host day camps at the beach where autistic children and their families could be exposed to a completely new experience of surfing.

This year Mokulele Airlines has partnered with Surfers Healing for the Hawaiian part of the tour, and has contributed to ensuring the event in Waikiki will maintain it’s ongoing efforts. Mokulele is passionate about helping youth in the communities in which they live, work, and play. Since Mokulele has its very own surf team they thought it would be a terrific event to partner with. They are especially excited to be able to bring awareness of the ocean in a safe and friendly environment to help build awareness and help energize the community in a way that gives back. Our surf team kids grew up in the ocean and are aware of how surfing can just make the whole world feel complete, if only for that minute when they stand up on their board and catch that epic wave. We wanted to partner to help these families feel that experience of joy, wonder, and laughter.
Mokulele is proud to offer their unique commodity to this amazing cause and has donated round trip vouchers to the volunteers of Surfers Healing on the big island of Hawaii, so that they can better afford the expense of traveling between the islands. The Aloha spirit this spreads to everyone involvedis a testament to the power of giving this holiday season. Source :
