Spreading the joy of surfing

Lee’s Lil Shorebreakers Surf Camp recently held its annual surf camp in Nags Head, with four youths from the Dare County Friends of Youth program participating.
Local surfers and volunteers Corinne Saunders, Anthony Leone, Jamie LaVier, Brent Nultemeier and Steve Wise, who guided the eager groms as they enjoyed three mornings of fun both in and out of the water, are shown along with the program participants.
The non-profit surf camp organization started in Virginia Beach in 2012 by Jean and Brian Brackins in honor of their son Lee, who was killed in a surfing accident. Their mission is to teach kids who might not otherwise have the opportunity to do so how to surf.
Local surfers LaVier, Nultemeier and Beau Spivey created the OBX chapter in 2013.
