Hanna Park: great for surfing

The Florida Surfing Association is preparing the "Silent Surfing" program, a surf event held for those challenged without hearing.

Deaf surfers will have the opportunity to enter the world of surfing, on May 21st, in Hanna Park, Lot 8. This is the first program in the world of its kind.

The FSA team wants to share the joy of riding waves, commonly known as 'surf-stoke'. "It began with a simply comment on Facebook, by Amanda Tapley, who suggested we had subtitles to our Super Grom Surf Fest video from last summer so that deaf children could better understand and enjoy the video", says Paul West, director of the Florida Surfing Association.

Amanda herself is deaf and a graduate of the National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID) in Rochester, New York. The "Silent Surfing" will have a a student, a professional instructor and a signer going out into the water, in groups, providing direct one on one constant supervision and instruction.

Those interested in participating should visit their website or contact Paul West.

Whether you think of a kite as a wing or a sail, you want it to be lightweight, resistant, waterproof, but also stiff and flexible at the same time, so that they could respond to all flight requests.
