Announcing our 2023-2024 National Sponsor - Tropicsurf

We are incredibly happy to announce that for our 2023-2024 season we now have our first annual major sponsor - Tropicsurf.

We were approached by Tropicsurf founder/director, Ross Phillips, earlier in 2023 to find out more about what we did and how we were funded. Ross, based in Noosa QLD, had already attended a DSA event on the Sunshine Coast and after a few discussions got back to us and offered to come onboard as a National Sponsor.

When asked what prompted him to reach out to us Ross replied...

"Volunteering at a DSA day on the Sunshine Coast, I shared a ride with a young girl on my board who (sadly) had no arms, no legs, was blind and also deaf. Despite her obstacles, she could still FEEL the rush of the ride at a very visceral level in her body. So much so that she giggled and shook with joy all the way to the beach. Talk about choking up. I will never forget that moment ever. Surfing has been good to me personally and also good to our business Tropicsurf. DSA experiences remind me of just how blessed I have been in my life to travel, surf and enjoy the ocean with so much freedom. The way in which DSA shares the kind of stoke that I can too easily take for granted is a credit to them. I cannot think of a better organisation for us to support."

Thank you Ross and Tropicsurf, your support means so much to the DSA!! Find out more about Tropicsurf at
