Disabled surfers hit waves

DISABLED Surfers from throughout the Far North Coast will converge on Yamba’s Turner’s Beach this Saturday for the annual Keenan Klassic.

Held in conjunction with Clar- ence Valley Council, the hands-on event provides the disabled with an opportunity to experience the wonder of the ocean and the fun that can be had carving the waves in a totally secure and fun environment.

Disabled Surfers Australia is a non-profit, self-funded, volunteer-based charity group committed to helping others live their life to the full.

“We aim to provide a chance for people with disabilities to experience what many people along the coast do every day,” DSA’s Daffy Chisolm said.

The action kicks off at 10am.

DSA are seeking more volunteers and sponsors as participation levels continue to rise, and interested parties can contact Chisholm on 0414 876 874.
