Military Surf Festival
Travis Strong, one of seven wounded war veterans who will be participating in the inaugural Military Surf Festival Sunday in Cocoa Beach.
Hosted by Beachside Media, the veterans will enjoy an all-expense paid weekend provided by Mambos Beachside Bar and Grill and the International Palms Resort. The City of Cocoa Beach is also a sponsor.
The event, the idea of Ed Martinez, a Cocoa Beach city commissioner and business owner, and Craig Harriman, CEO of Beachside Media, both of whom are veterans, is one they hope will bring a positive experience to the participants through the healing power of the ocean.
The presenting sponsor, Jetson Surf Technology, will be providing revolutionary lithium-ion battery powered jet-propelled surfboards, designed to aid the veterans.
Surfing begins November 11, 8:00am-11:00am at International Palms.
Come out and support our Veterans!
