My name is Natashia Angolique Siebert and I am a 36 year old Adaptive Para-surfer from Amanzimtoti,South-Africa

I have been fortunate to be selected to represent our Country in the ISA World Parasurfing championship in Huntington Beach California,from the 5th to the 11th of November 2023.


I would really appreciate a "wheel" up in support to realise that dream.I humbly plead for any assistance in helping me get to California (USA)for the World Championship.

After a tragic event in 2018 which left me paralyzed from my chest down,I knew that I needed to grab and appreciate every opportunity given to me.I discovered Made for More in 2019."

Since 2019 I have trained tirelessly,in and out the water,learning the surfing basics and how to maneuver to the best of my capabilities and abilities.

In 2021, I entered my very first surfing competition,KZN Champs...I placed second and from that moment,I knew I was hooked!In 2022 I went out fighting and managed to win my first Kzn title!!And i wasn't going to give my title up in 2023 either and won the Kzn title yet again!

2022 I also took part in the South African Para surfing Championship held in Durban,taking a very respectable 2nd place...and once again in 2023 I managed a very hard fought 2nd.It was held in Cape Town (Muizenberg)

This is where I got the chance to represent my Country in California.

Representing South Africa has been a dream since I started competitive surfing.Its an honour to have been selected..

If you decide to render me any assistance,there are two ways:

Please be my "wheel" up by contributing to my BackaBuddy campaign(Any amount no matter how small would be of great importance and help to make my dream a reality)or if you aren't in a position to assist financially,PLEASE give me a lift up by sharing my campaign with friends and family.

The cost of the trip to California is estimated at R70000 

Sadly we have been given a cut off date and with funds not coming in i will need to take on this journey alone without my carer...

Return Flights.          R22152

Accommodation.     R32553.71     

Day to day expenses are hard to calculate at this moment...


I just wanna thank you in advance

Love Natashia
