Disabled Surfing @ Inverloch
Come and discover an amazing day for all with the Disabled Surfers Association's Bass Coast event!
The Disabled Surfing Event, held each year in Inverloch, involves taking people with any disability for a surf on broken waves in waist depth water with a minimum ratio of 1 surfer to 6 volunteers, although there are typically 20 volunteers on hand to assist the surfer. Surfers assume the most comfortable position on the board which is typically laying or sitting and this sometimes includes specially made floatation devices which sit on the board and can also provide support.
We need Volunteers!! Our volunteers don’t need to have any experience to be involved. All they need to do is head down to the Inverloch Surf Beach behind the Inverloch Surf Life Saving Club on the day.
There are also land based roles to be filed on the day as a volunteer, including catering, beach co-ordination, car park co-ordination and most importantly registering our volunteers and participants for the days event.
All participants are welcome no matter what their disability or age as we want everyone to have a great time and enjoy the beach and the water on the day.
No surfing experience is necessary and we proved the wetsuit, sand wheel chair, beach access and of course the surfboard. We make sure the participants time in the water is a great experience.
All participants must be accompanied by a carer for the day's event.
We provide a free sausage sizzle, water, fruit and lollies to make the day a fun day for all the family.
Come down and see what it's all about and be prepared to be amazed at what a wonderful day it is for all!!
