Happy Birthday Surfability!

As Surfability U.K. CIC celebrates its 5th birthday today, the team here at the Surfability Headquarters are reflecting on the incredible journey Ben and all of his participants, volunteers and supporters have shared.

We would not be where we are today without the help of:

  • Steve and the Wales Co-op Centre
  • Unltd
  • The Prince’s Trust
  • Children In Need
  • Discovery
  • Disability Sport Wales
  • Jamie Rewbridge
  • Cerebra and UWTSD
  • Mark and Swansea University School of Management
  • Welsh Surf Federation
  • Anna and Rob Parton
  • Karenza Cassidy
  • Bronwen Warner and The Gumby Legacy
  • JP
  • All our coaches and volunteers
  • All our amazing surfers and their families
  • Everyone who has fundraised and donated to us
  • The LC
  • Parmi and IncludeMeToo
  • Strongbones
  • The Team at NPT Children’s Centre
  • Rehab Engineering Morristown Hospital
  • Special kids
  • The Swans Community Trust
  • Warburtons
  • Seren and Kasey
  • Simon and Gower Surf
  • SCVS
  • My family

And a special thanks of course to:

  • Elmo for keeping us all fed
  • Kai and Leanne for being fearless test pilots
  • Toby for all his time and effort volunteering and then coaching
  • Ben and Nate for being co-directors and all their advice
  • Stu and Steve for being willing to put up with a surf school’s worth of surfboards in your flat when we first started!
  • And anyone else who we missed out: We love you all!

And of course, to Benjamin Clifford! Without his incredible and unwavering commitment to his dream of making surfing a reality for everyone in the UK, none of us would be here today!

“Thank you, Ben! There isn’t a day that goes by where you aren’t making the world a better place, adapted wave by adapted wave!”

  1. Well done for building something totally unique on the Gower and UK. Wishing I could be with you to celebrate today. Hope that you start growing more surf schools for the disabled and hope that we get good news about the changing places toilet soon.
    My best wishes to everyone
