Free training for disabled surfer volunteers

The Central Coast Disabled Surfers Association will hold a free training session at Umina Beach on November 23.

The session is being held for people interested in volunteering with the association over the summer beach season.

The association is a volunteer-run organisation that enables people of all ages and abilities to take part in one of Australia's most popular past-times, beach surfing.

Volunteers serve to provide a safe surfing experience to a wide range of people with various disabilities who would otherwise be unable to access the beach.

Th Association provides a high volunteer-to-participant ratio, with as many as 30 volunteers for one participant in some cases.

The session will be broken into two parts.

The Team Leader session will be held from 8:45am at the Umina Surf Club.

This will be followed by the Novice Volunteer session from 10:30am.

The novice session includes the practical water component and participating volunteers will need to bring suitable swimwear.

"Volunteers do not need to know how to surf.

"They just need to be willing to get wet and have some fun.

"A training manual and rash shirt will be provided, but volunteers are encouraged to bring their own wetsuits," said organiser Ms Pauline Maniskas.
