As avid surfers ourselves, we often take for granted how easy it is for us to spend the day on the beach and in the water. Ocean Cure was founded on the idea of giving everyone the opportunity to experience our passion for surfing, regardless of their limitations. Founders Kevin Murphy and Christopher Lacoe felt there was a need for an organization that provides more than a one day event, but rather a life style. Murphy, being a licensed elementary school teacher, understood the compassion required for such as task and found there was a desire within the teaching community to spend their summers continuing to give back.
Ocean Cure began working with small groups of individuals with varying disabilities testing adaptive beach wheel chairs and surf boards. We found that there was a need for continued beach accessibility for those with mobility impairments but also an environment where people can build a healthy habit. We, at Ocean Cure, believe very strongly in using the healing properties of the ocean for not only physical disabilities, but also emotional trauma and mental impairments.
