SANTA CRUZ, Calif. -

Operation Surf Santa Cruz is an annual event that honors active duty military soldiers through "an epic life-changing surfing experience," volunteers said.

Many of the soldiers who participate lost limbs while serving their country fighting in war zones. Soldiers are able to rebuild their confidence and heal in a positive way by learning how to surf with help from legendary professional surfers who live in Santa Cruz.

Operation Surf Santa Cruz 2013 is happening this week at Cowell Beach.
