At the 9th Annual Beach Bash, California-based Surfers Healing helped kids ride the waves, many for the first time.

Surfers Healing Director Jeff Ekberg said ex-professional surfer Izzy Paskowitz, who has an autistic child, started the nonprofit organization. Paskowitz's son was having a tantrum on the beach one day, so he put him on a surf board and there was a positive response. From there, Surfers Healing was born. 

“It was something they finally had a connection to,” Ekberg said.
