Surfing the spectrum
A Bit About Us
Surfing the Spectrum is a not-for-profit Surf Therapy initiative working to positively impact the lives of Autistic youth and their families providing free learn to surf events.
Surfing the Spectrum combines our love for surfing with the opportunity to create a supportive community, in order to serve families and children who have not experienced the richness and fulfilment we receive daily from the sea.

We aim to be a central source of information for local communities and how they can participate in and support opportunities for children with Autism through surf therapy.

At a high level, our mission at Surfing the Spectrum is to make the ocean accessible to everyone. Through our surf therapy initiatives we aim to positively build and sustain purposeful autism, and disability, aware communities. We aim to be a leader in surf therapy in Australia and overseas.
