Rough Surf For Autistic Surfers On A Fun Day

– What’s up guys? Welcome to the blog. We’re at the beach! – Yeah! – Abbie’s already covered in sand. Ready to go Abbs? Ready to surf? No, not yet? Okay. A little break. Little break. – She got up super early. We were up for about an hour at six. And then she went back to sleep. – Yeah. – Now it’s so much fun. I love when we see people. Okay. So we are all registered. So basically what they do, is they give different groups. So Abbie is going to
part of the blue group. And they’ll have like 25
surfers go out at a time. And so you get your color bands. That way you know when you go out. Then they give you lunch,
arm bands and tickets. That’s so you can get
free water all day long. You get free lunch. And it’s all donated
from local restaurants and companies… (lively rock music) (ocean surf sounds) – Bathrooms a little bit of a hike here. – It is. (street crowd sounds) – Forgot the towels Abb. We’re going to have to go back, okay? That’s all we’re doing is walking back to the car. And then back to the beach. Well, I went down to the beach, and I asked Abbie, if she
wanted to go with me or mom? She wanted to go walk to the car. So that’s what we’re doing. So they also have like bounce houses here. The police have their
airboat set up out here. It’s pretty cool. Like a whole exhibit and
county stuff, Flagler County. They always do a really good job. Put on a good show. Invite a bunch of different people out. Like the Pirates. The Pirates are always fun. Are we having a good day? We’re meeting all kinds of people. We’ve probably had like
a dozen subscribers or so come over and say, “Hello.” So that’s really cool. Even some of those Lipstick Mamas from LimeLight came over to say, “Hi”. Yeah, alright. That’s a Model X. Tesla. Father’s Day. You know, just saying. I knew that was going to happen. You just wanted some
air conditioning, huh? That’s okay. We’ll sit here for a minute, then we’ll go back down there. Okay? Abb. Thumbs up. Thumbs up. I can’t see it. Thumbs up. What’s up? Are you ready? You ready to go back? Hey. You ready to go back? No? You want to eat? Girl, you had a big lunch. You ate a lot. You had baked ziti. You had a peanut butter and jelly. Those aren’t even like… I don’t know which one’s the side item. (surfing music) (cheering) (surfing fun sounds) – So one of the really
cool parts about this like the inclusiveness of SFA. – Yeah. – So Damien in the green Rash Guard. Damien is autistic himself. And he started surfing with SFA. How many, he was one of the first surfers. – He was, the first surfer. – And now he comes out and he helps other
people with autism surf. Like he’s helping Abbie right now. – Whoa, there’s a crab. – There’s a crab? – Yeah. – Did it get you? – No, but he could have. (laughing) (ocean wave sounds) (cheering) (surfing music) – Yeah, dude. (cheering – Hey, good job Damien. Great dude. (surfing music) – She did great. – She did. – Can you say thank you to everybody? Turn around. – Say thank you. Can we get a picture? Get a picture with the surfboard. Oh yeah. – Got a smile? Big smile. – Ah, good smile Abb. – Big smile Abb. – Nice – Good job, kiddo. You rocked it. Nice surfing. – Back at the room all cleaned up. (loud clapping) – Get ready for the after party. – Yeah they do like a little dinner party, after party thing after the event. – Ahhh! – At the conclusion of each SFA event. So that’s pretty cool. We get to just hangout. Go eat dinner. Talk to the other families. See our friends, stuff like that. (gentle guitar rock music) – Are you starving? Watching? Watch out for that food to come out. (loud crowds talking) – Watching for the lady
to come bringing it out. – It’s like they need to hurry up. Oh, ice cream. – You excited? – So excited. Best thing to do after dinner. And the feast, huh? Some chocolate ice cream. – There’s a pretty sky over here. – I know. It’s gorgeous, pinks and blues. Abbs, did you have such a great day? Surfing, dinner, music, ice cream. – Uh huh. – Did you have fun today? – We did. – A good day, huh? Rarely Isaiah says, “I had a good day”. It’s always good especially
when it’s not good, It’s not like an Isaiah event. You know. – Yeah, it was fun. – Necessarily. It’s more, we’re happy but, we always have fun as a family. Family, family Abb, super cheesy. Okay guys, we’ll see you guys tomorrow. We’re going back to the room. Bye. – Bye – Abbs, say “Bye”. – Mmmmm. – So stop (surfing splashing sounds)
