The Disabled Surfing Association (DSA) is at it again, helping people with limited abilities get into the surf in a way that many of us take for granted at this time of year.

This coming Sunday, January 17, they’re heading to Kingscliff – and they’re calling on volunteers to make sure there’s enough fun and support to go round.

Having extra people in the water always helps, even if you’re not directly assisting someone on a board.

‘Bring your friends, to come surfing or volunteer – in and out of the water – we can always use more “hands on boards”,’ a spokesperson said.

As for what it takes: ‘a big heart and willingness to ‘put smiles on dials’ is all that’s required.

‘You don’t need to be a ripper surfer to help out, we also need some talented bbq’ers and just some people to help out on the beach and in the shallows,’ the spokesperson said.

DSA at Kingscliff beach: Sign in from 9 am for volunteers, 9.30am for participants and carers. There’ll be a barbecue afterwards. Best of all, it’s free.
