AMPsurf hosts Operation Restoration Surf Camp in Pismo Beach

A brave group of men and women were proving anything is possible Sunday at the 5th annual Operation Restoration Surf Camp in Pismo Beach.
AMPsurf put on the event, which brings people in from all over the country each year to learn how to surf.
These people are not just overcoming the challenge of surfing, they are overcoming challenges such as blindness, being an amputee, or even a quadriplegic.
"It doesn't matter how you ride it. I mean we call this adaptive surfing, so we're adapted to your riding, whether you're a quadriplegic, maybe it's just laying in riding on a wave, if you're an amputee like myself, you know we try to get you to stand up as much as you can and ride, and all these guys have been huge successes," said Dana Cummings, the executive director of AMPsurf.
The event happens several times a year all over the state.
About 130 people came out to surf or volunteer Sunday.
