Huge shout out to the AccesSurf 2022 Hawaii Adaptive Surfing Championships for an amazing event. This event gave away a record $35,000 in cash prize money. Thanks to Cara Troy Short, Richard Julian, Eric J Welton, James Russell, and the entire AccesSurf staff of volunteers and everyone who worked behind the scenes you all did such an amazing job.

Thanks to Dr Mo Johnson and her entire team for making this sport legitimate through classification, without your hard work, research and dedication we are still in the dark ages. Thanks to High Fives Foundation, Roy Tuscany, Alana Nichols, All the Jeff’s on your team and especially Dani we appreciate your support and dedication to the sport. And thank you to the Stoke for Life team James Mcdonald, Collin Renner, Tiffany Greco, John Rich, and Jeff Warner, my nieces Julie and Victoria you guys really make me look good.

The Visit Oceanside Adaptive Surfing Professional World Championship Tour is off the a great start, we want to thank Leslee Gaul and Dana Higgins for believing in this platform. And enormous shout out to the adaptive athletes that showed true professional championship heart in this event, without this community of rock stars this platform does not exist. Next stop the U.S. Open adaptive Surfing Championships September 8th – 11th
