Welcome to Disabled Surfers in the Bass Coast
Here at the Disabled Surfers Association Bass Coast – (DSABC) – we have three goals each year and they are:
- To ‘Make Someone’s Summer’ by putting lots of ‘Smiles on Dials’ at each of our events on the gorgeous Inverloch Surf Beach.
- We aim to provide our community members with greater access to the beaches all year round for all abilities.
- We also aim to bring to our local town a wonderful event that unites all the community to bring a special day to all those involved.
If you would like to be involved and get a great BUZZ out of a day you should come along and see what all the fuss is about! We love to see everyone come along and find out what the secret is to a truly amazing and memorable day!

Our Last Event went like this…
Our inaugural Inverloch trial day couldn’t have started off to a more perfect start with a glorious 25 degree day. With the warm water rolling in forming perfect waves and a high tide which helped us make the beach access easy for our surfers on the beautiful Inverloch coastline.
