Welcome to the Gold Coast Disabled Surfers Association web page. Established in 2004 we have an experienced committee and a dedicated core of volunteers drawn from many parts of the Gold Coast community.
Our “Lets Go Surfing” days are held at Flat Rock beach, Currumbin (off Teemangum Street) – with a great shaded spot in Len Wort Park perfect for post surf snags. Click here to find us on GoogleMaps.
We are supported by various local business and organisations including: Coastal Fresh, Gold Coast Caravan Sales, Tugun Meat Market, Southport Trawler Supplies, VC Marketing, The Village Store, Gold Coast Tow Trucks, Gold Coast Community Fund and many more.

2020-2021 LET’S GO SURFING DAYS – POSTPONED
After careful consideration and in light of the current government health warnings the Gold Coast DSA Committee has unanimously decided to put our 2020-2021 season on hold.We have considered all options that could effect how we run events and we can’t in good conscience put our participants or volunteers at any degree of risk. The main factor in our final decision was the impracticality of even trying to maintain social distancing whilst still ensuring a safe event (especially with participants in the water) and we hope everyone understands that this decision was not made lightly and saddens us all. We will continue to monitor information from the federal and state governments as well as our local council and if there is any change that enables us to run a safe event we will do our best to get back in the water.
All our events are held at Len Wort Park/Flat Rock Beach, Currumbin – click on this link to find us on Google Maps
Our events open from 8.30am for volunteer/participant sign-in and we usually commence surfing around 9.30am.
Events will only be cancelled if there are dangerous conditions such as wild/big surf; strong winds and/or thunder storms. In the event of a cancellation we will post notices on this site and on our Facebook page.
