Disabled Surfers Association (DSA) organise surf days in summer. Their goal is “to provide an inclusive experience for all people with any disability to experience the rush of riding a wave.” And that they do!

A small army of volunteers is there to guide and help you from start to finish to help you achieve your disabled surfing goal. People of all ages participate, and it’s a fun day. Below I’ll outline information for the Ocean Grove/ Barwon Heads venue. I’ll also include links to other venues Australia- wide.

Ocean Grove beach offers year-round accessibility, and your family can either drive or walk. (Crossing the Barwon Heads bridge, and flat paths leading to the accessible beach area).
