Launch Day for First Official Adaptive Surfing Hub
The Wave Project is opening the first official surfing centre specifically for people with disabilities in Croyde, Devon on 21st April. And we’d love for you to join us on our launch day!
This exciting venture follows a partnership with Surfing England, The Wave Project and Surf South West surf school and brings, for the very first time, an official Adaptive Surfing Hub to England.
The North Devon location will offer a centre of excellence for those with disabilities wanting to try surfing or improve in the sport, providing a key south west hub for adaptive surfing. With highly trained coaches and the latest adaptive surfing equipment, we’re breaking down barriers to the sport allowing people with all disabilities to take part in surfing.
The Adaptive Hub Launch Day will be a unique opportunity to view the facilities, with the chance to learn about the specialist adaptive surfing equipment. Hear from The Wave Project, Surfing England and Surf South West about how this innovative hub came to being, and how surf therapy will change the lives of children and adults from around the country.
The day will kick-off at 9.45am at Surf South West surf school in Croyde. Use the postcode EX33 1NZ to find directions. The ribbon-cutting ceremony and presentation will take place at 10.30am with a chance to mingle with a drink and snack afterwards.
At 12pm we’ll be putting on our wetsuits and heading into the water. Here, you’ll see the equipment and surf therapy in action. This is where the work of The Wave Project shines through, and you will truly appreciate how life-changing this hub will be for those who use it.
Celebrations will finish at 2pm, and we hope you’ll have seen why we’re all so excited for this incredible new adaptive surfing hub.
We hope to see you there!
