Disabled Surfers Association "Hands-on Surf Day" - Thirroul 2023
The Disabled Surfers Association provides an environment for individuals with a disability, the opportunity to experience the freedom of surfing with friends, using up to date equipment to get individuals over the sand and into the water with dignity. The organisation on the South Coast and Illawarra has been established for over 30 Years and prides itself on their achievements and advancements in the area of disability.
The organisation operates on a volunteer basis and requires volunteers to provide the necessary numbers to establish the safety requirements, that we as an organisation hold. The event is designed to ensure the safety of all individuals, be they participants or volunteers. The core role is to ensure that the participants have an exciting day on the beach. The organisation does not have any restrictions in relation to the individuals who attend and participate. We strive to ensure that all participants get the opportunity to experience the day at the beach.
Age is no barrier to volunteer and there is no requirement to know how to swim but it does help at times. No surfing experience required as there is supervision on the beach for all activities.
All participants and volunteers will receive a sausage sandwich on the day of the event.
