THERE are just two more sleeps until the Disabled Surfers Association Great Southern season kicks off for another year.

Four dates have been locked in for 2020 and the first is this Saturday, January 11 from 9.30am to noon.

The Let’s Go Surfing Day will be held at Middleton Beach and Association President Kerry Oakley said people of all levels of ability were invited to join in the fun.

“Everybody with any form of disability is more than welcome to participate, age doesn’t matter,” she said.

“Community members who are able to are also more than welcome to volunteer to help with putting smiles on dials.”

Volunteers do not need surfing experience to help out; simply register and head to the beach at 7.30am on the day to help set up, and score a free breakfast.

Participants, carers and other volunteers can register online or from 9am on the day for a 9.30am start.

A free sausage sizzle and presentation will follow around noon. Register at

The next Let’s Go Surfing Days will be held on February 8, March 7 and April 4.
