Smiles on Dials for disabled surfers

The Central Coast branch of the Disabled Surfers Association will hold a Smiles on Dials morning at Umina Beach on March 7.

The Association provides an opportunity that allows those with a disability to experience surfing, a pastime Association president Ms Rae Fiechter said many able-bodied people took for granted.

Ms Fiechter said the success of Smiles on Dials events hung on the level of volunteer participation with a high number of volunteers needed to ensure safety of participants on the water.

"Volunteers can register by calling Pauline Maniskas on 0416 332 166.

"Sign in on the day is at 9am with surfing commencing from 9:30am.

"A free barbecue lunch is provided for volunteers and participants from noon," Ms Fiecther said.

Volunteering consists of helping participants to and from the beach, assisting them in and out of the water including tandem board riding.

"Volunteers do not need to know how to surf, they just need to be willing to get wet and have some fun.

"If you surf, it's a bonus.

"A rash shirt will be provided, but volunteers are encouraged to bring their own wetsuits," Ms Fiecther said.
