Medical/surf trip to Haiti

I am an emergency medicine physician looking for a place to take 6 other physicians (all in our 20's-30's) for an int'l medical trip for the month of Sept.  Several of us surf.  Would like to come to Haiti for a medical/surf trip.  

Anyone know of specific needs near surf spots or contacts for someone who might know?  How feasible would this be?

Unfortunately, I am under a time crunch (2 days --by this Friday July 27) to chose a destination and come up with a general plan.

Thanks, J. Wayne

Hi J.
How did you make out with this?  I am an surfing ERP as well--and was just asked to go on a medical mission trip to Haiti.  Can you give me any useful info?
Thanks,
Brian Addie

RE: Medical/surf trip to Haiti

I am also eager to see how your surf experience was.  I was there as a medical volunteer shortly after the earthquake.  I was so moved by my experience that I wrote the biography of two Haitian Brothers that I met.  It's called, "Teeth Not Tears: Smiles Through the Rubble."  But I'm writing to see if anyone here is interested in Surfing 4 Haiti??  It is a movement that I am kicking off with a surfing contest in San Diego!  It will raise money for schools and scholarship funds with the initiative of "Teach a person to fish..."  Let me know if you are interested or would like to help!
