Adaptive Surfing School Allows People with Disabilities To Catch Their Own Waves

post-image
Surfability UK is a community interest company that provides adaptive surfboards for wheelchair users as well as people with physical disabilities and neurodevelopmental conditions. They provide tandem surfboards that allow people to sit up unaided. The company originally started off helping people on the autism spectrum to participate in surfing and expanded into other areas of disability. There is always a team of coaches on hand to help people select the right surfboard, help them into the water and teach them how to catch their own waves.

Wonderful to delight people with an experience that many of us take for granted.
