Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – The first ever Surfing With Nixon event in Mexico was held on Beach #1 in Nuevo Vallarta, behind Hotel Villa Varadero, on Thursday, March 14th from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.
Surfing With Nixon (surfingwithnixon.org) is a successful US-based registered charity that gives children with disabilities, particularly those on the autism spectrum, the chance to experience surfing. Water therapy has been proven to provide lasting benefits to children with special needs, with surf therapy being particularly effective. You will see this first hand!
Pasitos de Luz has been chosen as the local partner for the event, with 40-50 children supported by our charity due to attend. They will be taught by professionals from top local surf schools, including Sayulita Surf Co. and Bucerías Surf.
We would appreciate your support of this event. If it is successful, the plan is to make it an annual event, inviting more children and major sponsors including Quiksilver and Hurley.
Located in El Pitillal, Pasitos de Luz is a marvelous day care facility for children with special needs. This non-profit organization provides children with various handicaps with a caring and loving environment, along with treatment for individual rehabilitation, nutritional meals, physical stimulation and therapy.
