Kaua’i Ocean Recreation Experience ambassador Lisa Insalata says it stirs her soul to see Kaua’i residents and visitors with disabilities riding waves.
Providing an opportunity they might not otherwise have, she is part of a group of volunteers who help individuals with disabilities such as traumatic brain injury or multiple sclerosis catch waves at Hanalei Black Pot Beach each month.
“The ocean provides such therapeutic and medicinal benefits, and for me to share that with others is one of the biggest gifts of all,” Insalata says.
