Mauli Ola Foundation: Surfers Healing at Haleiwa, 12/12/10

Everyone feels better when they surf, but for these groms with cystic fibrosis, it’s deeper than that.
Their lungs have an actual, physiological response to saltwater exposure that lessens the discomfort from their disease. The Mauli Ola Foundation puts kids with CF on a board and in the ocean for legit surf therapy, and yesterday they brought North Shore pros and locals out to Haleiwa to “treat” the groms with a day at the beach.
