The Disabled Surfers Association (DSA) is a totally voluntary independent surfing organization.

DSA has been helping people with all types of disabilities, including c2 quadriplegia, to enjoy a safe surfing experience in waist deep broken waves, now going for more than 10 years in the Hunter region alone.

Volunteers are local surfers and citizens from around the Hunter Region that make it all possible and rely on local sponsors to help provide the equipment they need.

Hunter Galvanizing putting smiles on dials

After becoming made aware of the fantastic work the Disabled Surfers Association carries out Hunter Galvanizing were honoured to be associated and to assist them where we could.

We were pleased to provide a tarpaulin suitable for the new trailer sponsored by NIB together with the drink carrying units and drink bottles required for the associations events. 

The club help less mobile people get down to the water at Blacksmiths Beach. Initially set up for injured surfers, within a short time the DSA dramatically widened its target group to cater for all disabilities that is anyone willing to have a go.

They create opportunities for everyone, including our disabled participants and able bodied volunteers, to experience our unique, safe and happy surfing events, whilst under complete supervision from our trained Team Leaders and Beach Marshalls.

Hunter Galvanizing received these kind words from the Co-President of the Disabled Surfers Association's Hunter Branch. 

Thanks for you support and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial association with you and hope to see some of you down on the beach with us in the near future.
