Central Coast Branch


Welcome to the Central Coast branch of the Disabled Surfers Association of Australia. Established in 2005, our mantra is “Putting Smiles on Dials”

A trip to the beach is a quintessential Aussie experience. Providing a safe and enjoyable opportunity for people with a disability to do so is made possible by our awesome trained volunteers. We cater for all disabilities and age is no barrier.

Our “Smiles on Dials” days are held at Umina Beach and Toowoon Bay with the full support of the surf clubs.

We need volunteers in and out of the water so if you feel you would like to be a part of this amazing experience, please contact our committee members.
