26 Views



SESAME STREET ON HBO AS WELL. — ON PBS RATHER AS WELL. SHELLEY: IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL DAY AT THE BEACH. DOZENS GATHERED FOR A VERY SPECIAL SERVE LESSON. SURFERS FROM ALL OVER NEW ENGLAND GATHERED ON NORTH BEACH TODAY, LIKE GRACE BENGTSON TOLD ME SHE COULD SWIM BEFORE SHE COULD WALK. I’M A STRONG SWIMMER, I’VE BEEN ON THE SWIM TEAM. AND FOR THE THIRD YEAR IN A ROW, THIS 25-YEAR-OLD WITH DOWN SYNDROME IS PARTICIPATING IN SURFING WITH SMILES. IT’S A NON PROFIT PROGRAM TEACHING PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS HOW TO CATCH A WAVE. THIS IS SO GOOD BECAUSE THERE ARE VOLUNTEERS.SOMETIMES THERE ARE 4 OR FIVE PEOPLE WITH HER AND SHE NEEDS EVERY ONE OF THEM. A HUGE CROWD GATHERED ON NORTH HAMPTON BEACH TO TAKE PART IN THE FREE PROGRAM SPONSORED BY CINNAMON RAINBOW SURF SHOP, AND ORGANIZED BY VOLUNTEERS. WE’RE HAVING A GOOD TIME. EVERYONE HAS REALLY GOOD VIBES. JUST REALLY GOOD ENERGY BEACH GAMES. YOU KNOW, NO ONE’S PRESSURED INTO STANDING UP. IT’S RIDE THE SURF BOARD IN ON YOUR BUTT, THAT’S SURFING.A FUN ATMOSPHERE BUT VOLUNTEERS ARE STILL TAUGHT THAT SAFETY IS THE NUMBER ONE PRIORITY. PLEASE JUST BE CAREFUL, BE SAFE, BUT YOU GUYS ARE THE ONES IN CHARGE. SO AFTER A FEW POINTERS ON THE BEACH. I PADDLE, PADDLE, PADDLE, AND THEN I POP UP. IT WAS TIME TO HIT THE SURF. SHELLEY, IS IT COLD? YES. COLD, BUT NEWLY CONFIDENT. AND PARENTS WATCHING FROM THE SIDELINES GRATEFUL THEIR SPECIAL NEEDS CHILDREN ARE TESTING THEIR LIMITS. AND TAKING PART IN A FAVORITE SUMMERTIME PASTIME. THEY HAVE THAT FEELING OF ACCOMPLISHMENT, OF BEING EQUAL LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE, AND IT’S JUST PHENOMENAL. THIS IS THE THIRD AND FINAL SURFING WITH SMILES EVENT THIS YEAR. .
