Celebrating disabilities

The Disabled Surfers Association Far North Coast will be celebrating the International Day of Disability by holding a disabled surfing ‘have a go day’ at Clarks Beach on Saturday.


The DSA has been running events around Australia since 1986 and has been able to provide people with all levels of disability a fun day at the beach.


There is a beach wheelchair available to the public at Clarks Beach, a wheelchair friendly picnic area and a ramp that makes accessing the beach that much easier.


The ‘hands on day’ starts at 10am and participants are encouraged to bring drinks and plenty of sun protection.


There will be a barbecue for all volunteers and participants. Sign-on is just north of the Clarks Beach Café near the access ramp to the beach.


For information regarding the DSA and events held at Byron Bay and at other branches go to www.disabledsurfers.org


Inquiries can be made to Ted Kabbout on 0427 804480.
