Nuevo Vallarta, on Beach #1, behind Hotel Villa Varadero

40-50 children with disabilities will be shown how to surf by 20+ instructors from the top surf schools in Bucerías and Sayulita. Originally the brainchild of Daniel Romney, founder of Surfing With Nixon, a charity in the US that gives children with disabilities the chance to experience the joys of surfing, this is the first ever edition in Mexico, with the aim being to turn it into an annual event. Many successful events have already been run in the USA.

On Thursday, March 14 they will launch of the first ever Surfing With Nixon event in Mexico, on Beach #1 in Nuevo Vallarta, behind Hotel Villa Varadero.

Surfing With Nixon ( is a successful US-based registered charity that gives children with disabilities, particularly those on the autism spectrum, the chance to experience surfing. Water therapy has been proven to provide lasting benefits to children with special needs, with surf therapy being particularly effective. You will see this first hand!

Pasitos de Luz has been chosen as the local partner for the event, with 40-50 children supported by our charity due to attend. They will be taught by professionals from top local surf schools, including Sayulita Surf Co. and Bucerías Surf. We would really appreciate your support of this event. If it is successful, the plan is to make it an annual event, inviting more children and major sponsors including Quiksilver and Hurley.
