Disabled Surfers Association - Surfers Helping Surfers!
We are excited and privileged to volunteer and continue our sponsorship of Disabled Surfers Association (DSA) Ocean Grove. Initially set up for injured surfers in 1986, today the DSA caters for all disabilities and supports anyone who is keen to have a go at surfing. DSA’s goal is to provide people with any disability with the opportunity to experience the sheer thrill of catching a wave. With the Great Ocean Road region of Victoria being home to some of Australia’s most famous surf breaks, the events at Ocean Grove Main Beach are a memorable way to experience this rush.
We recently assisted DSA with the required purchase of two brand new G Boards, used at the latest DSA OG surfing event 02/02/2019 at Ocean Grove Beach. The new boards provided some great additional buoyancy, enjoyed by the 102 awesome surfers and 244 volunteers assisting.
With all the participants having different disabilities, the DSA Surfers are without a doubt the bravest and most genuine surfers to ever enter the Ocean.
The DSA mantra of "Smiles on Dials" is extremely evident in the fantastic photos of the Surfing event days - check out Disabled Surfers Ocean Grove on Facebook to see the enjoyment shared by all in attendance, surfers and volunteers alike!
The next Disabled Surfers Association Surfing Event Day is on Sunday 03/03/2019 at Ocean Grove Beach. If you love the beach, people, surfing and smiles, please come along - Smiles on Dials guaranteed all round! You can register online here.
