“Overall this was a great course that showed me a side of surfing that I had not considered before. I would absolutely recommend this course to any surf instructors, as the lessons learned can be applied to more than just adaptive surfing.” – James
Whether you’re a binocular carrying nature buff, or you spot nature’s treats in mindful moments outback, surf trips are always a great way to experience local wildlife. This was certainly the case for the team here at Surfability during their trip to the ISA Adaptive World Championships in December.Continue reading
A few weeks ago, whilst working in the Canthed Centre at Caswell, Ben found a seal pup on the beach. It was amazingly well camouflaged in the stones, with most people walking on the beach completely unaware it was even there.
Thanks to Betsan from Celf Calon photography, we are spoilt for choice when choosing gorgeous photos to use on our website and social media channels. You’ll also find Betsan’s beautiful photos all over the walls of our new centre at Caswell.Continue reading
The 2020 English Adaptive Surfing Open took place on October 3rd at The Wave, Bristol.

Check out this epic and beautiful documentary from UNILAD.
Featuring Surfability U.K. CIC and some of our inspirational participants, this instalment of UNILAD Goodness (here) is unadulterated, feel-good gold.
The Surfability Surfer’s have been enjoying the calm before the arrival of Storm Callum at Caswell Bay this week.

Ensuring that safe, adapted and inclusive surf is available to as many people as possible is an important part of the Surfability mission. In this week’s How Do We Do It? We’d like to share an insight into the additional work undertaken by Benjamin Clifford, the Surfability U.K. CIC founder and director, to achieve exactly this.
We’d like to introduce the team at Healing Waves Surf Therapy, Jersey, who worked with Ben last week to complete their Adaptive and Inclusive Surf Coach Training Course.
With the support of the Welsh Surf Federation (here), Ben is now able to offer training to any surf school who want to offer adapted and inclusive surfing.
And we’re delighted to confirm that the team at Healing Waves Surf Therapy (here) are offering inclusive surf experiences on the idyllic island of Jersey.
With a dose of dazzling sunshine and salty shoes, the Littlest Wave Warriors and I waited for the Saturday Squad to arrive.
And once the squad arrived, it wasn’t just Quazi enjoying a seaside splash!
There’s never a bad time to decide you’re ready for a surf! So, if you’re feeling unsure, get in touch and we can help you find your stoke and make a splash!
Getting the surfboard to the waters’ edge is not always easy for our participants. So how do you manage it, you might ask?
Well, the answer is surprisingly simple. With the use of our surfboard transport trolley! A truly ingenious piece of kit, the transport trolley puts our surfboards on wheels. This enables us to move multiple boards down the beach at once.
Of course, some of our superhero surfers prefer to carry their own boards and this ok by us too!
