Disabled Surfers Assocation South West | 2018 summer wind up

The Disabled Surfing Association South West held its final event of this summer at Bunker Bay on Saturday.

A strong south-east wind sent some small waves into the bay making it an exciting morning of surfing for the 45 people who participatedand more than 70 volunteers who helped out on the day.

Volunteers included a group of students from Bunbury Catholic Collage and a Christian fellowship group from Canada which journeyed from Perth and were delighted to see the fun and excitement .

A man from Bunbury also came down and loaned his motorised surfboard for the surfers to use.

President Ant Pursell said while it was pretty windy it was great to have good numbers show up and have a brilliant time.

“Everybody is smiling, we must be doing something right. Thanks to all who participated in the surfing and to all the volunteers for coming down.”

Mr Pursell also thanked sponsors of the event including Gannaways Transport, Motorfest and the Commonwealth Bank.

He also thanked St. Mary’s Friendship Group for their donation and Yallingup youngster Skye Leaver who sold fruit outside the beach cafe and raised $350 over the summer.

The annual general meeting will be held at Eagle Bay Brewery from 11am on Saturday, April 7. Everyone is invited and new committee members will be sought.

The new season kicks off in December.
