Since the WSF Surf School was established in the early 90’s, our National Coach at the time, Tim Jones, led our involvement in developing many forms of adaptive surfing.

Specific courses have been run for Visually and Hearing Impaired, as well as for aspiring surfers with many varied disabilities, all in conjunction with SportWales.

More recently Ben Clifford and Sam Moore, two of our current coaches, are leading the way in including young people with Autism and staff at Surf Snowdonia are helping develop equipment and courses for adaptive surfing.

Ben Clifford & Toby Williams from Surfability UK, will accompany Llywelyn as our representatives and we welcome them and his team on board.

We now look forward to hopefully developing a full team for the 2017 ISA World Championships.

We are immensely proud that Llywelyn, through his own dedication and drive to date has now reached a skill level where he can compete on a world stage….and under the Welsh Flag!
