Thank you all for being part of Indo Jax.
In 2013 we served a record number of children in our surf programs. It’s hard to even fathom where we are today considering where we started. Over the years we have no doubt experienced our share of ups and downs. Even 2013 saw some bumps in the road. Nevertheless we just keep getting better! Our program of surf camps, charity surf camps, surf lessons and affiliate surf programs are some of the best in the Cape Fear Region if not anywhere in the world. Our surf instructors are some of the best anywhere I’ve seen, allowing us to provide some of the best surf lessons and camps money can buy! Our programs at Wrightsville Beach, Oak Island and Topsail Island have grown steadily over the years. Our reputation in the Wilmington Area is second to none.
We look forward to our 2014 outreach surf camp season and what it brings. This next season is already looking brighter than ever. Our Belarus Surf Clinic is already funded. We have a commitment form AlertTile and The Helen Keller Foundation to sponsor both our Visually Impaired and Hearing Impaired Surf Camps for the next 3 years. Along with The Eye Care Center that program sponsorship is stronger than ever. We have a commitment from the Nixon Family to sponsor a new program, a surf camp for the Boys and Girls Home of Waccammaw. And we should hear soon from a couple of other committed donors on our surf camps for autism and juvenile diabetes. Currently we are gearing up for our 5th India Surf Safari for Orphan Girls in April to kick off our 2014 surf camp season.
We are also really looking forward to our 7th year in business in the Wilmington Area, with our high quality morning surf/ beach camps and lessons for 2014. With new and better equipment on the way and 95% of our staff returning our surf camps and surf lessons this year are going to be awesome! The movie Bound By Sea premiered at Thalian Hall in Wilmington and was well received, we are excited to see where it goes from here. The Wrightsville Beach Wahine Classic made a comeback this year and was a huge success. Jo Pickett of Crystal South Surf Camp and Indo Jax Surf School worked together to make this happen, and it was an honor to work with Jo on this surf competition. We look forward to a continued relationship with The Surf Club, Surfers Healing, The Mauli Ola Foundation, University of Tennessee, Rip Curl and many others. It really is amazing the friends we’ve made and affiliates we have that have contributed to the quality and success of our surf program.
All in all 2013 was fantastic year for both our charity surf program and surf camp program. We are extremely grateful for the opportunities we’ve had. Here’s to an even better 2014!
