About The Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation

The Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation is a non-profit, tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the life of our inspiration Jimmy Miller. The JMMF provides free of charge its unique program of Ocean Therapy to the United States Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Battalion-West, as well as the Veterans from the West LA Veterans Hospital and youth from several care and shelter facilities for at risk and foster children. The JMMF Ocean Therapy program for the Marines takes place year round on the beach at Camp Pendleton and the program for the Veterans and children operates on the beach at Manhattan Beach, CA, during the spring and summer months.

The JMMF Ocean Therapy program combines occupational and recreational therapies with the sport of surfing in the healing environment of the ocean. Ocean Therapy is proven to assist recovery and rehabilitation for those challenged by Post Traumatic Stress Disorders (“PTSD”,) traumatic brain injuries, and other emotional, mental and medical conditions. The JMMF team consists of professional occupational and psychological therapists, expert surf instructors, experienced water pros and lifeguards, and dedicated volunteers.

Jimmy and John created that program almost 20 years ago. The guys are now volunteer surf instructors and are getting ready to return to college in the fall. Mark has been a part of the Pure Surfing, Camp Surf and JMMF Family from the very beginning! We love you guys! Good luck this year. See you next summer! ... See MoreSee Less
