About this activity...

Ocean Heroes is a charity set up by local West Australian surfers that aims to enhance the lives of those living with autism, through active involvement in the sport of surfing.

Keep your eyes peeled for future events in Perth and the South West!

Ocean Heroes provides children with autism the opportunity to take part in organised sport in a highly supported and structured environment. There is no equivalent organisation like Ocean Heroes in Australia, and to my knowledge, only one similar organisation in the world (Surfers Healing in the USA).

Ocean Heroes combines compassion, skill and professionalism to provide children with a unique opportunity to experience the thrill of catching a wave. Given the hugely successful events conducted to date, as well large numbers of children diagnosed with autism each year, I firmly believe that Ocean Heroes will grow to an important and sustainable organisation that could operate nationwide.
