Waves for Change provides safe spaces, access to caring adults, and provision of weekly ‘Surf Therapy Sessions’, to help young people from volatile backgrounds develop skills to regulate behaviour, build healing relationships, cope with stress and make positive life-choices.


Sea Rescue is the charity that saves lives on South African waters. The National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) is run by over 1 000 highly skilled, unpaid volunteers who are on standby day and night throughout the year.


We are here for all things regarding Adaptive Surfing in South Africa. Want to learn to surf? Want to compete in contests? Want to Volunteer? Want to Donate? Want help with board design? Want to be inspired? You are at the right place.

In addition, we are here to help any person or organisation who want to hold adaptive days in South Africa. In order for us to sanction the event, it is important and obligatory that you adhere to our safety code, and have completed an official Surfing South Africa Coaching Course. Safety is our priority. In return, you will be able to share all ASSA service providers and permissions.
