Spotlight: Surf Club

"Nothing is more rewarding than seeing a student who has never been introduced to [surfing] smile when they catch their first wave and the joy and accomplishment that they exhibit. A lot of these beginners are international students or students from states with no beach, so their first wave is memorable!"

Tom Sussan '23, Aquatic and Marine Biology, President of Stetson Surf Club
