If Christmas is a time of giving, one of the best ways to give back to the community is to help someone have a great experience they couldn’t have otherwise.
That’s the philosophy of the Disabled Surfers Association, which will be holding its next Byron Bay meet on December 6 to coincide with International Day of People with Disabilities (December 3).
DSA Far North Coast spokesperson Margreet, said it’s just ‘an extra reason to help out on this day and do your bit to give some people an awesome surf experience and have a great day on the beach’.
‘You don’t need to be a ripper surfer to help out,’ she added.
‘We also need some talented barbecuers and just some people to help out on the beach and in the shallows.
‘The main volunteer requirements are a big heart and a willingness to put smiles on dials,’ Margreet said.
The event will take place at Clarkes Beach Byron Bay, with a sign-in for volunteers at 9am and for participants at 10am.
It will be followed by a barbecue and is free for volunteers and participants.
