Disability Surf Lesson
The experience of surfing can have an incredible effect on the lives of those who try it. We want to make sure that surfing is available to every person. Freedom Surf School is part of the Surf 2 Heal Organization ( A Surf Camp teaching Children with Autism to Surf ) since 2009 ,we have gained a lot of experience working with children with disabilities, introducing to the Ocean and surfing. We provide small ratio (pupil : instructor) lessons for people with physical and learning disabilities.
Freedom Surf School has developed an ongoing programme for children with autism where parents, siblings and friends are encouraged to learn to Surf with their autistic child. The aim of this surfing programme is to become independent of the Surf School and enjoy the sport of surfing with family and friends.
