The APC Hunter Team
On Saturday 28th October 2017, Össur held their annual Amputee Surf Day for the first time in Newcastle at Nobby’s Beach. It was a fantastic day with many of our APC Hunter staff and families joining in on the surfing and fun.
It was great to see and interact with many of our clients from Hunter, including Adaptive Surfer Champion and Össur Ambassador, Jade Wheatley, as well as meet some of our clients from Sydney.
It was very encouraging to see so many amputees having a go at adaptive surfing, and a big congratulations goes out to Emilee who rocked the waves and won a custom Össur SLD custom-shaped surfboard.
The day ended with a delicious lunch catered by the Newy Burgers Co. A well organised and smoothly run event, we can’t wait for next year’s Amputee Surf Day (and hope it comes back to Newcastle again!).
