VOLUNTEERS will hit the waves this Sunday when the Ocean Grove Disabled Surfers Association (DSA) holds its second session for the year.
The group held its first surfing event on 31 January, which included 48 participants, 41 carers and 196 volunteers.
DSA committee member Ian Boyd, who’s been with the organisation since 2009, said exactly half the volunteers were new.
“They can see they make a difference,” he said.
The sessions cater for a range of abilities – from those who need ventilation to those who don’t need any help at all.
Ian is keen to get as many volunteers as possible to help “put smiles on dials”.
“The smiles are as much on the faces of the volunteers as the participants,” he said.
Registration starts at Ocean Grove Main Beach at 8.30am, while surfing starts at 9am. Rotary Ocean Grove will put on a free barbecue for volunteers.
For information phone 0408 253 206 or search DSA Ocean Grove on Facebook.
