We provide an opportunity for people on the Autism spectrum build confidence through surfing

Since 2016, Ocean Heroes has shared the thrill and wonder of surfing with over four thousand members of the Autism community, enabling them to build self-confidence in a supportive and fun environment. One of Australia's most amazing resources is our beautiful ocean – and everyone should be able to enjoy it! 

Fully equipped

We provide wetsuits, surfboards, life jackets, experienced surfers and good vibes.
