Smile on the dial

THERE’S no doubt that the biggest smiles that anyone will see on the Coffs Coast will be found during a ‘Let’s Go Surfing’ day hosted by the Mid North Coast branch of the Disabled Surfers Association.

The opportunity to take to the waves, which wouldn’t normally be there for the disabled surfers, warms the hearts of anyone who sees the grins from ear to ear that the surfers have as they ride a wave into shore.

With summer drawing to a close the final ‘Let’s Go Surfing’ day is being held at Scotts Head this Saturday.

For those who haven’t seen one of these gatherings, the Scotts Head days are traditionally a blast with big numbers of disabled coming down for their last surf of the season.

The branch is calling on all volunteers to make the trip south to ensure the final surf day is a big success. The numbers of volunteers and disabled participants continued to grow all summer and the branch is hoping to maintain that for Saturday.

The aim of the volunteers who help is purely and simply to put some ‘smiles on dials’ for the disabled participants.

Sign on for volunteers this Saturday is at 9.00am and surfing lasts for about three hours starting from 9.30am.
