Byron Bay’s Mark ‘Mono’ Stewart has been super busy travelling the world and competing on the ever-growing Adaptive Surfing circuit.
Stewart recently won a silver medal in the Kneel division at the 2019 Hawai’i Adaptive Surfing Championships held over late June.
Top adaptive surfers from around the world competed in the event. AccesSurf launched the event in 2007 as the first-ever international adaptive surfing competition and the number of events featuring adaptive surfers is expanding every year.
