Disabled Surfers Association of Australia Inc.

Acronym: 
DSA

We are a group of surfers who, through experience and qualifications, help our own members and general community get back into surfing.We have open days and 'hands on days' for any person with a disability who would like to give surfing a go. We also have a special day for the Royal Blind Society each year. The limitations to membership are due only to lack of funds and expert help. We provide social events, friendship and competition to surfers who are able bodied, and those with moderate to high support needs. The Association has never had a person with any disability that they have not been able to help to enjoy surfing. Twelve branches around australia- from the south coast of NSW to the Sunshine coast in Queensland, SA,WA and soon VICTORIA and New Zealand
