Families and participants are encouraged to attend the “Meet & Greet” at Jennette’s Pier’s in their upstairs banquet room. You’ll be able to check in and then head upstairs for a very casual dinner and mingle with other families. (“Casual” is casual for the beach = sandals, t-shirts, and boardshorts are welcome.) This time is also a great opportunity for our families to relax and mingle. We’ll end dinner with a short program and video social story about the surfing event.
When the program wraps up, siblings of participants will have the opportunity to go fishing on the pier FOR FREE. This sibling-only experience is one of the unique offerings of Surfing for Autism and offered by the kind folks at the pier.
While the siblings head out to fish, the surfing participants can head down to the beach. This is an opportunity to get accustomed to the surfboard, practice standing on a board, and ask all the surfing questions you can think of. This will be ON LAND. We’ll get in the water on Saturday.
