Making Waves: Our Mission

Imagine the rush of the waves, the sea breeze against your skin, and the freedom that surfing brings—all regardless of an individual’s physical or mental abilities. That’s what adaptive surfing is all about. We’re committed to ensuring that the gratifying teamwork and exhilarating experience of sports is accessible to everyone. Specific to surfing, we believe the transformative power of the ocean should be felt by individuals of all backgrounds and abilities, and we work hard to make it so.

So, how does it work? Adaptive surfing is an inclusive approach to riding the waves, designed to make sure surfing is accessible to individuals with physical or mental disabilities. As such, Coastal Adaptive Sports enables adaptability in equipment, techniques, and instruction to cater to the unique needs of all participants. From making use of specially designed surfboards to adopting personalized strategies, our team is here to ensure that everyone can enjoy the liberating sensation of riding the ocean's waves. No experience required. We call these events “Wheel to Surf.” They’re a celebration of the human spirit, as individuals of all backgrounds come together to feel a deep sense of community and connection to nature.

Safety First: Riding the Waves With Confidence

Of course, safety is our absolute top priority. It can be hard enough to try something new without worrying about whether you might be injured in the process. We work hard to bring comfort in this area. Each participant surfer is paired with at least one volunteer surfer to ensure the safest and most enjoyable experience. Our team is well-versed in adaptive surfing techniques and safety protocols. And of course, adaptive surfboards are designed with stability and buoyancy in mind, so they provide a secure platform for the longest and most comfortable ride. The ocean might be vast, but with the right (literal and figurative) support, everyone can conquer its waves. We want our participants to focus on the joy of surfing, knowing that their safety is our utmost priority.
