Lessons for disabled surfers

The experience of surfing can have an incredible effect on the lives of those who try it.  We believe surfing should be available to everybody.  That’s why we’ve teamed up with Surf Relief to offer any young person aged under 25yrs with a recognised disability subsidised one to one surf sessions.

Depending on the individual’s needs and abilities, we can offer anything from a ‘learn to surf’ session to a tandem wave riding experience.  We have experience of working with young people with all types of needs including autism, Asperger’s syndrome and Down’s syndrome. We can cater for groups, schools or individuals.

 

One to one sessions include all equipment and are just £35 per session for a 1.5 hour session.   For more information please contact us.DSC_0559

 

Feedback from our surfers

You were amazing with the children and all achieved far more than any of us could have imagined. They were all exausted on the journey home, including the helpers!! I am sure that when the word gets around about how fab it went, we will have lots of other children wanting to take up this wonderful opportunity next year! One parent rang me to say her son had been having a terrible time, constantly having ticks etc but since returning on Sunday was a different lad- that really does make it so worth while.

One of the group said how much he enjoyed it all.  His support worker commented, ‘I don’t know what you did down there but you have changed.’   I believe that he has found an inner strength he never thought he had and that he can do whatever he sets his mind on – with the right support.
