SC - Volunteers Install and Fund Beach Access Mats in North Myrtle Beach

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WPDE) — Volunteers with the Adaptive Surf Project and the Surfrider Foundation assisted city staff in installing new wheelchair mats at city beach accesses, according to a post from the City of North Myrtle Beach.

The Surfrider Foundation donated the funds used to purchase the mats and Luke Sharp with the Adaptive Surf Project organized the fundraiser. The mats improve beach accessibility by reducing the distance wheelchairs must travel over soft beach sand.

The new beach access mats are located at:

  • 4200 North Ocean Boulevard
  • 3400 North Ocean Boulevard
  • 6th Avenue South
  • 33rd Avenue South
