Surfing is for everyone. We know that some people with physical disabilities simply want to try surfing as an experience rather than doing a course.

With this in mind, we have introduced our Adaptive Surfing programme for people with disabilities.

Adaptive Surfing is delivered by specially trained surf coaches supported by our wonderful trained volunteers.

Sessions are booked individually because each person has different needs and may require different levels of support. Our goal is to make the surfing experience as authentic as possible for each participant, removing any barriers that prevent them from accessing surfing.

Our Adaptive Hubs

We run three special Adaptive Surfing Hubs in Watergate Bay, Cornwall; Croyde, North Devon and Scarborough, North Yorkshire for people with disabilities who want to try surfing, but don’t necessarily want to take part in a Surf Therapy course.

Our Adaptive Hubs provide:

  • Fully qualified adaptive surf coaches
  • Adapted surf equipment, including seated surfboards, beach wheelchairs and adjustable wetsuits
  • Level access to the beach (no steps of cliffs)
  • Access to disability toilets and changing facilities
  • Disabled parking spaces nearby with step-free access
