"Calming, fun, alleviated some stress. Helped me forget about crap. Now when I start to feel overwhelmed with stress, I close my eyes and take myself back to that wonderful experience on the ocean in Maui."

"For a few precious hours I felt stress free, one with the ocean, It was very therapeutic. Knowing I can feel that way again gives me the courage to live."
Calahan Welsh USMC Deployed to Iraq & Afghanistan from Camp Le Jeune, NC - Suffering PTSD
"The lesson got me on the way to stand-up paddling. So nice to be on the water in the early morning and enjoy the beauty of Maui. Very relaxed at end of session. I can’t remember ever being that relaxed."
Eulie Johnson US Army Deployed to Afghanistan - Partially Disabled
“I only have a 10% disability but let me tell you from my own experience, the surfboard instructions provided by Dave Fletcher of the WWWRA is eye opening, fun, challenging, I just can't express all the adjectives to describe it. I had never been on a surfboard before but Dave carefully prepared me for the experience and gently moved me onto the water. I loved it, and I plan to return for more instructions...just as soon as I conquer this bronchitis that has temporarily sidelined me. May I highly recommend his WWWRA class to any Veteran dealing with PTSD or any disability.”
