Welcome to Great Southern WA DSA

 

The Disabled Surfers Association is a not-for-profit organisation and its sole aim is to give people with varying disabilities the opportunity to have a safe, happy and dignified surfing experience - come and experience it for yourself. We need helpers for jobs both in and out of the surf - the more, the merrier!

 

DSA Great Southern was formed in 2017 after 3 years of DSA South West visiting Middleton Beach for annual Surfing Days culminating with the first of the Great Southern club’s 3 days in 2018 and now 4 days.
