AMPSURF gets wounded veterans riding waves

Ο οργανισμός AMPSURF (Association of Amputee Surfers) ιδρύθηκε για να βοηθήσει ανάπηρους βετεράνους του αθλήματος και γενικά τα άτομα με αναπηρία, να προσαρμόσουν την μέθοδο σέρφινγκ στο πρόβλημα τους και να νιώσουν με τον τρόπο αυτό την θεραπευτική δύναμη του ωκεανού και του συγκεκριμένου σπορ.
Ο φωτογράφος Ezra Shaw μας αποκαλύπτει τους θριάμβους και τις προκλήσεις που κλήθηκαν να αντιμετωπίσουν οι αθλητές κατά την διάρκεια μιας εκδήλωσης της AMPSURF στην παραλία Pismo στην Καλιφόρνια, μεταξύ 13 και 20 αυγούστου.

Operation Restoration IV, a learn to surf clinic hosted by The Association of Amputee Surfers, took to the surf on Pismo Beach, Calif. to ride the waves from August 13th - 20th. AMPSURF is an organzation set up to help disabled veterans and local disabled, along with wounded active duty servicemen, to learn adaptive surfing and feel the healing power of the ocean and the sport. Photographer Ezra Shaw shows us the triumphs and challenges of the event. Regular viewers of this blog will recognize Shaw's terrific photography, which frequently appears here. ( 18 photos total)
