Many of the kids have never been to the beach let alone ride a wave!  The Jimmy Miller Foundation combined forces with the Just Keep Livin Foundation for an end of the year school event for local Los Angeles High School students.  They provided the students with six different stations which taught the kids how to surf, body surf, Ocean safety, nutrient, Yoga, Ocean Ecology and a beach clean up. The event took place at El Porto Beach in Manhattan Beach.
