Surfing requires durable and well designed surfboards that can provide enjoyment for all who participate in this dynamic sport.
There are additional requirements when surfing with the disabled to ensure we can have both a volunteer and participant on the board at the same time.
This requirement keeps the participant safe but still gives them the ultimate thrill of catching a wave.
As we have been running for fifteen years ,many of our surfboards are well past their use by date to achieve this purpose. They are chipped and fragile.
As board technology is improving all the time ,boards are getting lighter and stronger without being made larger and these are ideal for our purpose.
Our awesome project is to upgrade our board stocks to be more effective to use and therefore give the best experience to our disabled surfers.
