Surf Events

West Coast Adaptive Surf Clinics

Extreme Abilities will be teaming up with Club Mykonos Casino and Resort in Langebaan to host a series of adaptive surf clinics and competitions. In addition to adaptive surfing, Extreme Abilities has started the development phase of a surf school project for the local Saldanha, Vredenburg and Langebaan Communities on the West Coast of South Africa.

As part of the development project a lot of focus will be place on ocean safety and conservation. We will be visiting schools in the area to rally students to part take in beach cleanups and educate them of safety and conservation issues and how they can make a positive impact and have fun surfing while doing it.


Youth Surf Therapy

Saldanha is predominantly a fishing and industrial town. Surrounded by ocean it lends for plenty of surf opportunity. The local community has up until now been estranged to the beach and ocean life and Extreme Abilities is set on changing this by reintroducing the ocean to the youth in the form of Surf Therapy. Like many other townships and informal settlements, Saldanha faces its own social challenges with gangsterism, drug abuse and teen pregnancies on the top of the long list. Following the example of other non profit organisations globally we aim to achieve the same success in youth development through Surf Therapy in the Saldanhabay Municipal area.

Beach Cleanups

Tabakbaai Saldanha 

30 students from Diazville Primary School came to the beach with us to help clean up plastics that washed up from the ocean. This was the first time a beach clean up was attempted at this beach and we sure made an impact, but on our next attempt we will have to bring along more hands! Cleaning up our beaches is the first step of using Surf Therapy to create awareness on ocean conservation among the the youth of Saldanha.


Surf Competitions

South African Adaptive Surfing Championships 

Sponsored by Triggerfish Animation, the 3rd national championships was hosted at New Pier, Durban this year for the first time. The team that will represent South Africa at world champs is selected and will be competing in 5 different divisions for men an women.
