Surf2Heal is a non profit organization created By Jon Hynes the owner of GTown Surf School in Kinsale in Cork, his wife Alayne and Nollaig Hayes a Garretstown resident whose son Sean is on the autism spectrum.
Nollaig who saw the enormous benefits that the sea had on her son Sean approached Jon to ask him to teach her son to surf, as she had come across a group in America called Surfers Healing who were successfully running a surf camp for children with autism. Jon suggested a research mission to Nollaig. Needing no persuading they agreed and in a matter of weeks Jon, Alayne, Nollaig and Sean were on a plane to Mexico to visit the Surfers Healing team.
The trip was a great success and on their return in May 2008, Surf2Heal was created as a non-profit organization here in Ireland. A national call for volunteers was made and a team of enthusiastic surfers, care workers, special needs professionals and water worshipers came together eager to share their expertise and love of the ocean.
