Surfers for Autism: Life-changing connections on the waves

Damian Richter, 14, was diagnosed with autism at age 3, and began surfing at 5 when his mother, Tracy Bastante, took him to the first Surfers for Autism fundraiser a decade ago. The 10th annual festival will take place April 21-23 in Deerfield Beach with surfing sessions for autistic children, surf and paddleboard competitions, local bands, food trucks, family activities and surf-related vendors.
