Surfing the Spectrum at Cypress School



This summer, Cypress School joined Natalie Pepper’s Spectrum Surf Camp for individuals with special needs, giving all our students opportunities to hit the waves.  Cypress videographer, Steve Gatlin, reached out to NBC News, inviting them to the beach to check out this amazing camp.  They filmed some great surfing, as well as interviewed Natalie, Cypress Camp Director Laura Briggin, and some of our Cypress surfers.
