Everyone Jumped In for Blind Surfing Event

September 11, 2016 – Members of Sustainable Surplus’ team volunteered at the Blind Surfing Event sponsored by the Encinitas Lions Club.  It was a heartfelt event where surf instructors and helpers guided sight-challenged children and adults into the tide at South Ponto Point in Carlsbad.
Elise MacAndrew, executive assistant of Team SSE, spent most of the day in chest-deep water, guiding her assigned students onto a wave.  “It was such an incredible experience,” Elise shared.  “I’d do this again next year for sure!”

MacAndrew and SSE executive director, Sue Prelozni, volunteered as part of the Live Well San Diego Lions team, led by County Supervisor Dave Roberts - who also jumped in.  Everyone was hands on and in the water, sharing in the passion!
