ISA Adaptive Surfing Champs Fundraiser
Hello my name is Luke and I’m hoping to represent NZ at Adaptive Surf Champs in California at the end of this month.
For those of you wondering - adaptive is someone who is missing a limb or with partial to complete loss of sight. I was born without a left hand.
Competitive adaptive surfing is in its infancy in NZ but there’s a real urgency to develop our sport to ultimately compete at the LA Paralympics.
Recent administrative developments mean that it is critical New Zealand has a representative attending these Adaptive Surfing Champs in California.
Never in a million years did I think I'd ever have an opportunity like this. It gives me a huge sense of pride and a real desire to share this experience so a huge thank you in advance to anyone who makes a donation.
If there are any companies out there keen to offer support please do get in touch at email@example.com.
For those of you keen to follow my adventure, I'll be posting daily videos on the Adaptive Surfers Facebook page.

Luke Darby's involvement
While my goal is obviously to win its equally important I create contacts and opportunities for future adaptive surfers wanting to compete at these international events.
