Surfing for Everybody – level 3

02-02-2017 15:00

Around 40 Australian children with disabilities can enjoy surfing lessons once a month, thanks to volunteers from the Gold Coast Disabled Surfers Association.

The mother of a four-year-old child who was born with cerebral palsy was happy to see her son have a great time. She said that she had never seen him so happy apart from the time when he went horse riding.

One of the volunteers said that many of the children do not get a chance to come to the beach, so sometimes this is the first time that they have ever been in the ocean.

Difficult words: cerebral palsy (a disability in muscle coordination caused by damage to the brain before or at birth).
