Arrival & Checkin
Do not check in at the Participant Registration tent earlier than 20 minutes before your surfing heat time.
If you arrive or check in early, we have an Activities tent where you can create signs with words of encouragement and/or engage in activities until time to checkin. 5-minutes prior to the surfing heat time, you can go to the Meeting Area tent so the participant can be fitted for a lifejacket .
Please, remain there.
The therapeutic professional will pick up the participant at the Meeting Area tent. Keep in mind that our water volunteers are coming in from prior heats, organizing and preparing for their next heat, and reading the registration form so they can help transitions be as smooth as possible.
Please, only registered participants in the water.
Should involvement from a guardian be requested by the surfers or therapeutic professionals, please limit it to one guardian in the water because the surfing area can get crowded. Only the registered participant is able to surf for a various reasons. Thank you for understanding.
Food & Activities
Snacks, drinks, and lunch are available for free at the Food and Beverages tent. Lunch will be at 12:30pm-ish after all the surfing heats are finished so families and volunteers can eat together.
Please join us for a great time! Our food has been set up for families and volunteers but we would love for friends and supporters to come, cheer on the participants, connect with other families, and enjoy the activities. Please, feel free to invite friends!
We have a variety of beach-friendly activities at the Activities tent available during the event but please make sure your children are supervised at all times.
For those that are experiencing sensory overload or overheated, we’ve found it feels at least 5-10 degrees cooler underneath Jennette’s Pier. There’s also a small aquarium inside Jennette’s Pier… and it’s air-conditioned.
