Can-Do-Ability: Answers and Solutions from my personal experiences of living with a disability

KORE

12 Nov 2013KORE (Kauai Ocean Recreation Experience), helps people who are Autistic or have physical disabilities experience surfing again or for the first time.

KORE is made up of an army of volunteers from lifeguards, fire fighters and other experienced water lovers.

Being in the water helps people’s mind, body and soul to feel good.

Surfing has helped people with disabilities feel at one with the sea and help them feel like part of an accepted community.

I think I would love to have a go at catching a wave. I imagine it to be very exhilarating.
