Putting 'smiles on dials' is the motto of an upcoming surf day.
The fifth annual Ulladulla disabled surfers' hands-on day will be held on Saturday, November 9 at Mollymook Beach.
The event is run by the South Coast Branch of the Disabled Surf Association for the region's disabled surfers.
Ian Picton, one of the event organisers, is literally counting down the days as we get closer to the day.
You can hear the passion in his voice when he talks about past disabled surf days.
"I remember tears of happiness from the parents when they see and watch their children. We want to put smiles on their dials," he said.
Ian said it was beautiful to see all community members come together for this special day.
"We don't discriminate and nobody is turned away," he said.
The Ulladulla Boardriders, local school students and members of the public will assist at the event.
Last year's surf day was an overwhelming success and more volunteers are needed for the November 9 event.
Ian said the event was a rewarding thing for volunteers to support.
The good news is that you don't have to be a surfer to be a volunteer.
"We have jobs for everyone to do," he said.
Jobs, like taking someone by the hand and waking with them down to the water, sounds like it would be a great thing for a volunteer to do.
Ian added they try to get school children, so they become comfortable being around disabled people, involved in the event as volunteers
A free barbecue will be supplied to all registered attendees, thanks to support from groups like Ulladulla Bunnings.
Sign on for volunteers is from 8.30 am and 9 am for participants.
Volunteers and carers don't have to pay but a $10 fee applies to non Disabled Surf Association members.
