The Disabled Surfers Association of the far north coast are having their annual gathering at Kingscliff, at the Coast Guard Tower Beach on the January 19.
So named after the late Peter ‘Cocky’ Stannard who was a staunch supporter of the Disabled Surfers Association putting in many hours of volunteer work throughout his later life for the benefit of the local disabled community.
This event is in need of surfing and waterwise volunteers.
‘To help the disabled community to have a safe water experience it takes many volunteers for a day at the beach, which most of us take for granted,’ DSA media officer Diana Willis said.
‘Our aim is to put smiles on the dials of participants and volunteers alike’.
The DSA provides rash vests, sun lotion, water, and a free lunch to all volunteers. Just turn up at 9am, sign on, have a quick briefing, and then it’s into the water.
Particpants are welcome to come along at 10am to sign on then go surfing.
The day is capped off by a beach barbecue lunch and presentation. It’s all over by around 1.30pm.
