One In Five for 2 March 2014
This week on One in Five, Katy Gosset is at Surfability Day at Christchurch's Sumner Beach. The event, run by the local long boarders club, offers people with disabilities a chance to get out in the waves, each supported by a large crew of volunteers. The club runs an event each year to give something back to its beachside community: this year it chose the Surfability concept proposed by a club member, Gary Butt, who had run similar events in Kaitaia. The participants include novices and, in some cases, more experienced surfers testing the waters again after a life changing accident.
