Surfers Healing lived up to its name as it brought surfers, gleeful spectators and volunteers together at Malibu Surfrider Beach on June 3. The nonprofit’s mission is to help children, teens and young adults with autism to experience the enjoyment of surfing in the ocean. The organization was founded by Izzy and Danielle Paskowitzs, whose adult son, Isaiah, was diagnosed with autism when he was 3.
