Ocean Cure is a 501c3 non-profit organization based out of Carolina Beach, NC. It is our mission to provide increased beach accessibility to our coast, and to help improve the quality of life for our participants through surfing. For more than ten years we have served over a thousand participants and their families with a number of life challenges and disabilities through the use of beach wheelchairs, accessible flooring, and adaptive surf boards. There is no beach that we cannot make accessible. And we want to make sure that our participants leave understanding that there is no obstacle that they cannot overcome.
