Its been a busy summer for Chris Antao and the volunteers at Gnome Surf in Fall River. Gnome Surf is a non-profit agency that provides surfing instruction to youngsters and adults.

Among its clientele are youngsters diagnosed with autism and other disabilities, and adults recovering from addiction. Hundreds of youngsters are taught surfing skills during the summer months.

Chris Antao talks with Jim Phillips this week about the successes of the summer program, an upcoming fundraising campaign, and what happens at a surfing school during the winter.

Townsquare Sunday is an hour-long public affairs program that airs every Sunday morning at 6 a.m. on 1420 WBSM. Interview segments can also be heard on, the WBSM app, and on WBSM TV on YouTube.
