About the event
To welcome change is to become adaptive. Among surfing being a vibrant and exciting element of modern, local, national and international youth culture a new element of the sport is evolving.
All over the Globe numerous resilient adaptive athletes missing limbs, their vision or full use of their arms and legs have solitarily frequented able bodied surfing competitions for years doing whatever it takes to hit the water and progress themselves through to the next level.
Adaptive surfing as a competitive sport and now global network has provided that much needed and desired platform for impaired athletes to compete and perform at a high level increasing integral mobility, strength, health, fitness, cognitive skills and the complete and overall wellbeing of the athletes progressing themselves as high performance athletes capable of competition at an elite level.
"Newcastle Adaptive Pro World Invitational of Surfing” is about to stake it’s claim in World surfing history and our team would love you to be a part of it. The event is a High performance inclusive event created “By the Surfers for the Surfers” catering for the Global Adaptive surfing community.
This premium competition is designed to maximise the potential of perfect wave conditions which up until now Adaptive surfers have not had the the opportunity presented them under competitive conditions.
The swell window is stretched out over a Eight day period only needing Three whole days to complete the event which dramatically increases the chance of quality surf allowing the world class Adaptive athletes to take advantage of the optimised situation and showcase their skills in the critical and high performance sections of the wave.
The Surfing competition accompanied by the Wheel Chair MX Downunder / Beginners clinic and Adaptive Film Fest gives the athletes and adaptive personalities the opportunity prove their talents, abilities and put their skills to the test in a display of resilience and athleticism to a world wide audience.

A Bilateral Below Knee amputee surfer myself... I have witnessed first hand the incredible health benefits competitive Adaptive (Para) Surfing has on disabled athletes I am currently doing all I can to develop Adaptive Surfing as a high performance global sport, giving the adaptive community a platform to progress and enhance their physical and mental wellbeing. In August 2017 at the Surfing Australia awards I received an honour for my work in organising and executing a project I created, Walk for Waves, a 160km journey walking and surfing along the coastline over 1o days between Newcastle, Australia to Manly to prove my devotion, raise awareness and raise funds for the Australian Adaptive Surfing team to get to the world championship. I have represented my country at 3 world championships and will continue to further the sport through events like this one.
