Finding your balance and coordinating paddle strokes can be a challenge for anyone – now imaging doing it with your eyes closed!

Five of our vision impaired students from our After School Mobility Klub took on the exciting afternoon challenge of stand-up paddle boarding at Redcliffe.

The special activity was run thanks to the sponsorship of Surfing Australia, along with some willing volunteer instructors who were brave enough to take on the chilly conditions.

The kids loved spending time in the water together and taking on the challenge of trying to stand up on their boards with the help of the instructors. You can see photos from the afternoon on our Facebook page by clicking here.

Did you know we offer a range of programs for babies, children and young people with low or no vision? If your child would be interested in a great social experience that’s a whole lot of fun, we have an option for you.
