But something about this surfer is different.
The water shimmers, and people begin to clap as the board makes its way through the swell, revealing the surfer has a partner riding alongside him. They glide together over the foam, and the audience cheers when the pair comes into view: a young boy, surfing on his stomach, and a furry Golden Retriever, calmly balancing on the back of the boy’s board.
The dog, Ricochet, helps to steer the boy into the sand, and people of every age and developmental ability watch as the rider is helped off the board. The sun beats down and you breathe in deep, taking in this experience you once thought would only take place in a daydream.
Giving freedom back to kids with disabilities
But for many children and adults living with limited mobility conditions, a day at the beach can be something incredibly difficult, if not impossible, to navigate.
All-terrain wheelchairs were created to go where ordinary wheelchairs cannot - and to the places you want to go the most.
What is an all-terrain wheelchair?
From off-the-beaten-path locations like woodland trails to uneven regions such as sand dunes, all-terrain wheelchairs easily pass over rugged ground without trouble, thanks to oversize balloon tires and a sturdy frame.
And when your day of exploration is done, simply collapse your all-terrain wheelchair into its carrying case and stow it in the back of any vehicle until next time.
