You're only as limited as you allow yourself to be


Adaptive Surfing for people with disabilities.

Adaptive Surfing was introduced to the disabled community of South Africa for the first time in 2011.  The first event hosted 15 disabled individuals and every year the event grew in size to a point where numerous adaptive surf clubs has sprouted nation wide. Follow the links below for full event reviews on each of the events we hosted since the inception of Adaptive Surfing in South Africa as well as other adaptive surf events organised by other like minded groups that followed the path we set out. At the moment Adaptive Surfing is in a fast paced developing stage on an international scale with the first ever World Adaptive Surfing Championships that was hosted in 2015 with 17 countries that represented. If you are a South African resident with a disability and you surf or have surfed before your disability, please contact us for more information on adaptive surf clubs in South Africa and we will put you in contact with an adaptive surf club near you. If there is no club near you and you are as passionate about surfing like us, we will help you start your own club.

...or by donating your old surfboards and wetsuits

Being at the forefront of adaptive surfing world wide, having to innovate and find new ways to surf, we need equipment that we can modify and test to the limits. A lot of beginner adaptive surfers don't have the resources to attain their own gear and equipment. Extreme Abilities serve as a platform where those less privileged can have access to adaptive surf gear. If you have old boards, wetsuits, surf/dive gear, we would greatly appreciate any donations. Contact us and we will make collection arrangements.
