My brother Charles and I are very proud to be founders and supporters of Mauli Ola. In 2007, we read a landmark article in the New England Journal of Medicine about the the healing nature of saline (salt water) to those with cystic fibrosis (CF). We have been working with CF at Ambry Genetics since 1999 and surfing our entire lives, so when we learned that people with CF get actual relief and treatment from being in the ocean surfing, we decided immediately to combine both our professional and personal passions and create MOF. It started in Southern California through word of mouth amongst our surfers and we were able to connect the world's best watermen and waterwomen to children in need. MOF has grown to include children and hospitals in Hawaii, the Pacific Coast, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Atlantic.
