Our Innovation Centre makes Kai “king of the waves”

Kai taking to the waves

“It was an amazing feeling to see Kai surf past shouting with joy”

Life can often be hard for children with brain conditions and they are unable to join in with the fun that some of their able bodied friends can have. Our Innovation Centre is dedicated to designing and making bespoke products that can enrich a child’s life, giving them new experiences that wouldn’t otherwise be possible. By donating to our Christmas Appeal this year you can help our Innovation Centre bring fun and inclusion to a child’s life.

This year our designers have developed two new products that will help disabled children to experience the thrill of the waves: a tandem surf board with a supportive “bucket” seat that can be used by disabled children whilst being controlled by a trained surf instructor and a Surf Access Vehicle. which enables wheelchair bound children to get to the water’s edge.

Thirteen-year old surf enthusiast Kai Lewis has cerebral palsy following a stroke at the age of one.  He recently helped to test the Innovation Centre’s latest designs.

You can watch a moving film clip of his experience here:

Proud mum Leanne  watched on, thrilled as her extreme-sports-loving son enjoyed the new technology. She said

quotation-mark-openWith this now, he is like the king of the sea, he can sit back, relax, and ride the wave. The first wave he caught was the biggest he has ever caught, and my heart was in my mouth. It was amazing and it opens up so many options, not just for Kai, but for other children with disabilities. Hopefully it’s going to get more quotation-mark-closechildren out of their wheelchairs, and for a parent of a child in a wheelchair the more you can get them out, the better.


Please make a donation to our Christmas Appeal today and help put a smile on a child’s face. There are many more disabled children out there for whom the possibilities are endless, with a little help.
