Bring your own wetsuit!

We supply the big stuff – adaptive surfboards and beach transfer wheelchairs. You supply your own gear – wetsuit, lifejacket (for athletes), fins (for deep water volunteers) and towels. If you don't own a wetsuit, please plan on renting one from a local surf shop.


Lunch is on us

We serve breakfast snacks, an awesome lunch, and water throughout the day for registered athletes and volunteers.
