On Sunday the 3rd of December 2023 the world celebrated International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

At Surfers Corner, Muizenberg better surf conditions could not have been asked for by the team at the Roxy Davis Foundation. A light westerly held the waves, and warm, clear waters welcomed more than 100 volunteers who were needed on and in the water to assist surfers with disabilities set a new record for the most adaptive surfers on one wave.

“The wave with the most number of adaptive surfers on it was 24; at present, this is an unofficial record that the Foundation hopes to make official and is planning to submit it to the Guinness World Records, symbolising our collective dedication to pushing boundaries and making waves in the world of inclusivity and community.” – Roxy Davis (Founder and Director)

Congratulations and THANK YOU to the Surfers and their support teams on land and in the water!

The day will go down in history!

The Wave Challenge Surf Therapy Fundraiser is the initiative behind this inaugural event – we are raising funds to cover the costs for 30 new surfers with disabilities to each receive 6 Surf Therapy sessions in 2024. It is not too late…www.roxydavisfoundation.org/donate-now-to-surf-therapy
