This is a short film that was used for the Surf Relief Pilot Instructor training day. Produced by Head High Productions at Bigbury on-Sea in 2012. The surfers are from Downham House; they have learning difficulties and severe autism. The instructors are from Discovery Surf School (one of the Surf Relief Schools).
The Surf Relief Pilot training Day was put together by Dave Manley, Jon Price (Big Blue Surf School) and Martin Connolly (Discovery Surf School), hosted by First Steps Surf School (Boscombe). The eventual aim being to develop a course for instructors to be able to offer a surf experience to special needs/disabled pupils. The day brought together lots of experienced instructors across different fields of expertise, and they all added lots of input to help the course.
