A Deaf Youth learn how to surf at Oceanside,CA



(Transcript)

Hello..

I want to share with you about Terrie Berdy and her family who came down to Oceanside from Riverside for surf lessons. Terrie contacted me last 3 week after we met at KODAWest event in Huntington Beach that her kids (Sean and Tyler) plus other youths and adults want to learn how to surf. We have been communicating through emails. They were learning how to surf while Terrie's husband, Scott were shooting video for SDDS.

I'm very pleased that Scott willing to shoot video for me while friends and I were giving lessons to the students. We helped the students by pushing them while they were on the soft surfboard so they could ride with the waves. I'm impressed with them that they were emulating from my help to their independent while waves were roughed.

Now, I will let you to view the rest of the video clip.

Jon,

Look what you've started!! You guys at SDDS are doing amazing things, reaching out to the deaf community, youth and families, to teach them about the joys of surfing! Having taken a lesson from you, personally, i know how much time you invest in teaching and the depth of your knowledge really impacts the would-be surfer. Thank you for all you do! You're a bright, shining star!

Thank you also for introducing us to the photos of James Queen! The slide show was wonderful!

Jon!

That is a great way to teach the deaf community, young deaf surfers, and even old deaf people to learn how to surf. I remembered when I went to Dune Beach in Northern California to surf a little and had a blast time. It was only a time I did with my friends! Hope someday I can meet u when I move to California soon.. Keep up and maybe I can learn from you . Smile
