The Cerebra Innovation Centre (CIC) recently took on their latest challenge and converted a surfboard so that children with physical disabilities can enjoy the experience of surfing safely.

One such board was sent to the family of young J and their feedback has shown that the surfboard has been a huge success!

The family received the board just before their summer holiday and Mum provided us with some feedback before testing:

“We are all so excited! The board is absolutely amazing, we have all been jumping around the house as we are so thrilled! Fingers crossed this makes him independent and boosts confidence.”

J’s reaction to his new surfboard was definitely a positive one and he told the Innovation that they had sent him “the most coolest board (better than my parents’!).”

According to J’s mum, the surfboard was indeed a success and really made the family’s holiday.

“The surfboard worked wonderfully. Having it with us reallymade our hols.  J independently body boarded at Saunton sands, Croyde, Putsborough and Woolacombe beach! All three of us even caught the same waves!”

The guys at the Cerebra Innovation Centre are currently looking for new challenges. Do you have a need for equipment that isn’t already available on the market or doesn’t quite meet your needs? Maybe you have a completely new idea that you think would benefit your child. Either way, get in touch with the team at cic@cerebra.org.uk or 01792 483688.
