High Fives Foundation brings 11 adaptive athletes to Maui

In May, High Fives brought 11 #HighFivesAtheltes to Maui, Hawaii for a ten-day surf camp. A film was made in association with Fractal Film Co to tell the powerful story of leaving limitation behind and using surfing as a way of healing together as a community.

“The camps are getting people to step outside of their comfort zone so that they can positively grow and move forward — get past that injury,” says Roy Tuscany, High Fives Executive Director. Most athletes were not avid surfers before their injury, but surfing allows for motion and independence unlike any other adaptive sport.

“When you come here, it feels different than where I’ve ever been in the world,” said Josh Dueck, an Athlete of the High Fives Foundation who was injured in a ski accident in 2004.

“Luckily with a group like High Fives, there’s a ton of support, and they want to help you figure it out,” said Bond Camp, a High Fives Athlete on the trip. “That’s what I think High Fives is all about.”
