Burrow, the 2015 Activ ambassador, shared his surfing knowledge at Trigg beach for a two-hour lesson in conjunction with Surfing WA and encouraged the participants to challenge themselves.

The former second-ranked surfer in the world said the Activ Foundation helped make a positive difference in the lives of many people living with a disability.

�I�m a proud West Australian and I�m stoked to be on board as the Activ ambassador in this year�s City to Surf,� Burrow said.

�The surf school was a great chance to meet some of the people who are helped by Activ each and every day.�

Activ chief executive Tony Vis said the organisation was focusing on the dreams of its clients and how through community support, they could achieve them.

�It�s fantastic that Taj has committed to creating such a fantastic and memorable opportunity, which I�m sure many of the people will remember for the rest of their lives,� Mr Vis said. �For many of our clients involved in the surf school, meeting Taj is a dream come true and we are truly grateful to him for giving them this opportunity.�
