Oceanside CA— “Catch a wave and you’re sittin’ on top of the world.” Those lyrics from the Beach Boys song ‘Catch a Wave’ became reality for students from TERI Inc’s two non-public schools, the Learning Academy and the Country School on Friday, May 4, 2018. Surfin Fire Surf School teamed with Teri Inc. for the eleventh year, to give the students a chance to experience the thrill of catching a wave.
“We have 40 students that went surfing this year,” said Elizabeth Stoker, Administrative Assistant at TERI Inc. “The kids just love it. Water is their favorite thing. Chance, who is one of our students, was grinning ear to ear the whole time. One of the parents told me this event is the highlight of their entire year. We really appreciate everything Surfin Fire Surf School does with the kids.”

“My son Sebastian loves this and more importantly, I love this,” said Maria Rittenberg. “All of my other kids are super jealous. What other kids get to go surfing on a day like this. The weather today is a dream. Other years it has been cold but it didn’t matter. We were happy. It is super special.” This was Sebastian’s third time attending the event.
