Surf’s Up!

September 8, 2022

The Club Kona is proud to host and sponsor amazing Special Olympic athletes in the surfing division!

Surfing is a new division being introduced to the Special Olympics in the state of Hawaii, and has been a dream for several years. “Surf Day with Aloha” originally took place prior to COVID and was a great success but unfortunately, all training and surf events have been placed on hold…until now! We are excited to have our athletes back in the pool and training hard.

Surf Day With Aloha 2022 will take place on Saturday, September 17th at 9am at Kahalu’u Beach Park.

We would love for you to be a part of this thrilling journey! If you would like to volunteer or donate, please email:

Special Olympics is a global inclusion movement using sport, health, education, and leadership programs every day around the world to end discrimination against and empower people with intellectual disabilities.

With the support of more than 11,000 coaches and volunteers, Special Olympics delivers 10 Olympics type sports and over 50 games and competitions throughout the year.
