Kanoaaquatics is a non profit foundation that teaches over 200 inner city and abused kids how to surf yearly through the PS I love you foundation on Saturday, in Manhattan at sixth street from 10:00 am - 3:00 p.m., Saturday July 24th, 2010. Last year we taught over 100 children at Manhattan pier on the biggest south swell of the year. Waves were licking the bottom of the pier.

LACO lifeguard Kip Jerger, with 3 of his Kanoa surf camps instructors and equipment came up with a way to do it with many satisfied children surfers. Thanks to Lifeguard Jeff Horn, for helping Kanoa, and the back up. He and his wife Patti, and 200 volunteers donated their time and effort. Special thanks to the LACO Fire Department Beaches division Lifeguards for all their help. Only one rescue was made at the event that day. Yeh !

Volunteers welcome. Free food T-shirt and loads of fun. Contact Kip at 310-308-7264 or via email to:

Kanoaaquatics has taught the Los Angeles Braille Institute children how to surf and boogie Board for the last 10 years. Some of the hardiest ones actually stand up and ride waves, all the way to shore. Wow what a sight ! This year we will be teaching the blind at 45th. St. in Manhattan Beach, from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm., on Sat., July 24, 2010.

*** You do not have to know how to surf to help. Again Volunteers welcome. Contact Kip at 310-308-7264 if you are interested. Thank you.
