After sustaining a spinal cord injury Don had trouble finding a water-ski that would allow him to return to the sport he had loved and excelled in. At first while unable to find an adaptive water-ski he did find many other recreational products. Knowing how hard it was to find the right equipment he realized there must be a need for a company specializing in adaptive recreation and exercise equipment for the physically challenged. In 1987 Access to Recreation was incorporated in the State of California. The first year we printed the first edition of the Access to Recreation catalog in black and white. That first catalog was 32 pages and we printed 35,000 copies. In 2007 we printed 200,000 full color catalogs with 64 pages.
