People with disability have the opportunity to enjoy the thrills of surfing, thanks to the SA chapter of the Disabled Surfers Association.
The club holds three Have-a-Surf Day events each year that offer people with intellectual or physical disability a day at the beach and a chance to catch a wave.
The events are fully supervised with wetsuits, surfboards and vests all provided.
The next event is Sunday, March 8, at Moana beach. All are welcome, simply turn up from 1.30pm on the day.
The Association, formed in 2005, is run by a small group of volunteers. Each year they have both increased their number of trained volunteers and their number of participants.
The South Australian branch operates out of the Moana Surf Lifesaving Club, where the Have-a-Surf Day events are based each year.
