Wave-ability is a community oriented project with the goal of making the beach and the surfing experience accessible to people with disabilities

The freedom to surf

Who we are?

We are a team of surfers, ocean lovers, engineers and product designers who have come

together to realize the dream and vision of making the beach and surfing accessible to people with physical disabilities.

 

Wave-ability was created from the belief that surfing and activity in the water gives a person with

physical disabilities a unique opportunity to achieve freedom of movement, control of the body

and release from their physical limits.

Inbal's Story

I am Inbal, 36y, I am an architect and a former wind surfer.

At the age of 18, I was wounded during training in my military service.

The injury left me paralyzed from the chest down and confined to a wheelchair.

Since my injury, I've dreamt of returning to the water.

A year ago I had the opportunity to surf again. Being in the water allowed me freedom of

movement and control of the body which I can't experience chained to my wheelchair. I want to

allow more people in my situation to experience the freedom that surfing allows.

Together with Makers For Heroes we managed to design a surfboard suited to my needs - the

first of its kind in Israel.

Today, my teammates and I are interested in creating

surfboards adapted to people with disabiilities and opening a surfing community that will allow

more people in my situation to surf and experience the freedom that the sea allows.
