In March 2013, American surfer Christiaan ‘Otter’ Bailey visited Warrnambool to assist Kylie Thulborn to spread the word about adaptive surfing and skating. Together, they organised a whole host of events and speaking engagements.
The ‘Surfing 4 All’ event in Warrnambool, was supported by a host of local agencies and volunteers, with the aim of getting people in wheelchairs to take the plunge and have a go at surfing.
Some of the participants had never been in the ocean before. For them, being immersed in water was nothing short of amazing.
