Surf­boards Were Too Ac­ces­si­ble

MidWeek Islander (West Oahu) - - West Oahu Islander -

The lo­cal non­profit Ac­cesSurf re­ported that it had two adap­tive surf­boards stolen Nov. 23 from a staff mem­ber’s home in Kaimuki.

Ac­cesSurf pro­vides adap­tive surf­ing lessons and ther­a­peu­tic ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams for peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties. Many of its pro­grams are con­ducted at White Plains Beach in Ewa Beach. The two miss­ing boards have an es­ti­mated value of $1,500.

“Th­ese are our two most uti­lized surf­boards at our pro­grams, and we don’t have re­place­ment boards,” said Cara Troy, pro­gram co­or­di­na­tor of Ac­cesSurf. “We would just like the boards re­turned so that our fam­i­lies with dis­abil­i­ties can get into the ocean safe- ly.”

The miss­ing boards in­clude are a 12- foot Surftech Soft-top Res­cue Surf­board with yel­low and red mark­ings, han­dles, and the let­ters “ASH” in black let­ters; and a 12-foot white In­fin­ity Adap­tive Surf­board. It is cus­tom-made with adap­tive han­dles and pad­dles and also has “ASH” in black let­ters.

The boards can be re­turned, no ques­tions asked, to Ac­cesSurf founder Mark Mar­ble at 218-9804.
