In honor of International Women's Day, we're highlighting local organization Waves 4 Women, a non profit therapeutic surf program serving women experiencing trauma, loss, and other life stressors. Their ultimate goal is to empower women to build emotional and physical wellness though a combination of surf instruction, women's wellness groups, and community building. Sessions are held on Saturday mornings in small group settings that welcome newcomers with open arms. If you’re interested in registering, visit the Waves 4 Women programs page for more information. 

Raised funds go toward ensuring surf programs are accessible to all women and girls on a year-round basis. You can donate to the scholarship fund online, or support locally by purchasing a ticket to attend their Turn the Tides event at Taco Boy Folly Beach on April 21st.
