Local organization gives free surf lessons to medically fragile kids


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Ocean Cure is a local 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to giving free surf lessons to medically fragile and at risk youth and adults.

Kevin Murphy sat down for Good Morning Carolina to describe how the organization touches lives. From helping recovering cancer patients to reaching out to children who can't see, everyone finds freedom and empowerment on the water he said.

"We at Ocean Cure believe very strongly in the powerful emotional and physical healing properties of the ocean and surfing. During our charity surf camps for medically fragile and at-risk youth and adults our highly qualified instructors guide participants through their fear and apprehension around an activity that they otherwise thought impossible."

Now, through website donations, Murphy is hoping to raise enough money to buy 4 WAVEJET battery powered surfboard systems so they can broaden the work they do for people. Check out video from life-changing lessons and hear more from Murphy when you watch his full interview from this morning.
