    Surfers healing was founded in California by professional surfer Israel “Izzy” Paskowitz for his son, Isaiah, who was diagnosed with autism at age 3. Because Izzy discovered the positive impact that surfing had on his son, he shared this unique therapy with other children diagnosed with autism. Surfers Healing Camps are now hosted in Hawaii, California, Mexico, Puerto Rico and a few surf towns like Folly Beach, SC. These camps enrich the lives of people living with autism by exposing them to the unique experience of surfing. Members of the international surfing community travel with the event and work one-on-one to coach children with autism to ride the waves. For more information visit: surfershealing.org.
    The Great Hammerhead
    This shark's unusual name comes from the unusual shape of its head, an amazing piece of anatomy built to maximize the fish's ability to find its favorite meal: stingrays.

    A hammerhead shark uses its wide head to trap stingrays by pinning them to the seafloor. The shark's eye placement, on each end of its very wide head, allows it to scan more area more quickly than other sharks can. The hammerhead also has special sensors across its head that helps it scan for food in the ocean. Living creatures' bodies give off electrical signals, which are picked up by sensors on the prowling hammerhead. The shark hunts alone, and can find stingrays that hide under the sand on the seafloor. Hammerheads also eat bony fishes, crabs, squid, lobsters, and other sea creatures.

    The upper sides of these fish are grayish-brown or olive-green and they have white bellies. They have very impressive triangular, serrated teeth—like the edge of a saw's blade. The species favors coral reefs, which can supply food as well as shelter although, aside from humans, this impressively large denizen of the deep has few enemies.

    Aggression by hammerheads against humans is uncommon, but not unknown. Swimmers, divers, surfers and other water enthusiasts should respect the space of this toothsome fish when it is nearby.

    “They've evolved into these sleek, alienesque looking predators and I wanted to create artwork that emphasized their beauty and characteristically haunting shape. My goal is that my art raises awareness and curiosity for the beauty and necessity of sharks.”
