Thanks to the Best Day Foundation, several Matheny School students were able to go surfing at Asbury Park Beach on Sunday, August 2.

The BDF’s mission is to enable children and young adults with special needs to build confidence and self-esteem through adventure activities that stretch their limits, expand their true potential, reinforce achievement, and connect them with diverse populations in their community.

The day started with some time to play in the sand and complete an obstacle course with a special guest, Spiderman. Then, a team of volunteers took the students onto the boards to help them catch a wave. The activities wrapped up with an awards ceremony and lunch.
