Extreme Abilities Adapted Surfing Day

[scrollGallery id=103]

This past Sunday’s Extreme Abilities Adapted Surfing Day was not only a chance for 47 disabled Capetonians to experience the ‘stoke’ surfing gives to millions of surfers across the globe. It was also a chance for many of Cape Town’s able-bodied surfers to be humbled and thankful that they get to experience these joys without assistance.

And they showed up in force to lend a helping hand to the 47 surf-hungry participants who’d signed up for surfing lessons.

Scroll through the gallery for some heartwarming moments captured by Shot Bru contributor Andoret Lombard.

    Love this! saw a couple of my mates helping out. Bummed out that I missed this as I was out of the country and its right on my doorstep. I hope this will become a regular thing. Keen to share the stoke!

    It was an amazing event!! Thanks to Surfing South Africa, Dries Millard and his amazing family, all the volunteers and surf coaches as well as funding from Sport & Recreation SA it would not have been possible. Great images Andoret – you totally captured the days adventure 🙂
