Most everyone is aware of the healing properties of water. The Mauli Ola Foundation began as a group of surfers seeking to introduce people with cystic fibrosis to surfing as a natural healing element. Last week, the group assisted surfing icon Allen Sarlo, at First Point – Surfrider Beach, Malibu, in hosting an event for children and their friends. They got to surf either tandem or on their own with a surfer guide. The day ended with medals of courage for the participants. Surfer Kala Alexander played master of ceremonies. Skaters/Surfers Jeff Ho and Solo Scott, among others, were on hand assisting. Lots of smiles that day!
