The clinic serves a group of injured servicemen, servicewomen, and their families year-round; providing surf instruction, coaching, paddling, boogie boarding, swimming and kayaking. The group includes newly injured, ongoing rehab patients, and returning/integrating service people who can take advantage of the equipment, coaching and camaraderie. The Balboa Warrior.
