A huge day at Thirroul Beach on Saturday (November 26) with the Disabled Surfers Foundation holding their annual ‘Hands On Day’.
Run by the South Coast branch of the DSA, the event gives the area’s disabled people the chance to have a go at surfing.
It’s all possible thanks to the amazing team at the South Coast branch of the Disabled Surfers Association, our local surfers, students and the general public who volunteer their time to help all people enjoy the ocean.
Last year’s event at Thirroul was a bit wilder than organisers anticipated. A steep drop off meant it was impossible to run the surfing safely, so they compromised with a dunk between the flags.
This year’s event looks set to be fantastic. It will run from 9am -1pm and finish with a BBQ lunch for registered attendees and volunteers.
