(Here is a new article from GrindTV.com in which Sephan discusses his experience with JMMF)
STEPHAN JENKINS donated time this week to the JIMMY MILLER FOUNDATION at CAMP PENDLETON in SAN DIEGO, where a number of wounded, ill or injured MARINES attached to the WOUNDED WARRIOR BATALLION were hosted. For each “Ocean Therapy” session, there is a discussion about a theme related to trauma and recovery and how it relates to the ocean. After the discussion there is a 90-minute surf session followed by a closing circle. JENKINS spent the morning teaching MARINES how to surf, and in essence sharing his love for a sport that has provided him with so much personal joy over the years.

“Surfing is foundational to my life. Still it doesn’t feel complete until I share it with others,” JENKINS said. “Sharing it with service members who have carried their trauma home and seeing what it does for them completes it for me. There is no place I would have rather spent my birthday.” For more information on “Ocean Therapy” and THE JIMMY MILLER FOUNDATION, check out its official homepage jimmymillerfoundation.org.
