U.S. military veterans and surfers from Lincoln County and beyond hit the water at Newport’s Agate Beach last Friday, Oct. 15, with the return of the annual Ossies Surf Shop veteran’s surfing workshop.

The workshop had been on hiatus since 2019 due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, but it resumed this year now that COVID restrictions have loosened somewhat, bringing around a dozen veterans to Agate Beach to enjoy a sunny day on the water.

During this event, Ossies helps match up experienced surfers with military veterans who have little to no experience with the sport, providing an opportunity for them to learn something new and possibly discover a lifelong hobby in the process.
