Our Story

Beach Wheelchairs About Us

Beach wheelchairs are an incredible asset to wheelchair-bound individuals seeking independence. Bill Fertig, a paraplegic and the founder of Sand Rider, knows this fact firsthand. After a motorcycle accident left him without the use of the lower half of his body, Fertig found himself needing more help than ever. The feeling of relying on others to move around, especially after an incredible career as a police officer, was a challenge. He soon adapted to life controlled by his arms, exploring a new independence with his wheelchair, becoming a competitive hand-cycle athlete, and driving his car using various hand controls. However, his independence would soon be challenged during a beach vacation.

Fertig and his family wheeled down to the beach, using an outdated and cumbersome beach wheelchair, not expecting the experience to be extremely difficult, uncomfortable and unpleasant. Rather than become a burden for his family, Fertig chose to stay behind, missing out on the family fun and the beautiful weather to avoid using the sand wheelchair. He and his son Chris knew, at that moment, that something needed to change.

Sand Rider, the ultimate beach wheelchair, would be the solution. Fertig and Chris, an engineer and two time world record holder for the fastest speed boat run from New York to Bermuda, put their heart and soul into the new and improved beach wheelchair. Its lightweight and rigid frame, along with its oversized tires, allow users to glide over deep sands and navigate obstacles with ease.

This new kind of independence gave sand wheelchair users, like Fertig, the opportunity to be actively involved in beach activities such as digging for clams in tidal areas, shell collecting on barrier islands, and exploring the beaches of the world without hesitation. The Sand Rider can be easily checked as luggage in its special roller duffle bag, or broken down into three parts, without tools, for easy transportation. The Sand Rider is a game-changing, expertly designed beach wheelchair, and is guaranteed to encourage independence and endless summer family fun.

We sold our products to state and local governments from coast to coast and across the border.

Examples include, California Beaches and Harbors, City of Virginia Beach, City of Ottawa, Government of Saskatchewan and most recently the Town of Kill Devil Hills in North Carolina. Kill Devil Hills is a notable example as it’s a small beach community that invested over $60,000 in providing beach accessibility ranging from improving ramps, to beach mats to deploying 5 Sand Riders for beach use. This is a first in the Outer Banks and is hoped to be a trend that will be adopted by other localities up and down the Coast. Join Kill Devil Hills and Sand Rider in providing the gift of accessibility to those who need it. Invest your tax dollars in a product that’s proven to be durable, easy to use and cost effective solution to providing access to beaches and parks.

Saskatchewan Provincial Parks Expand Beach Wheelchair Program

“I am proud to announce that we have added five chairs to the beach wheelchair program in our parks, doubling the total number of chairs available,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Ken Cheveldayoff said. “Everyone deserves to have access to our beautiful beaches and lakes. Our visitors have a diverse range of needs and the addition of these beach wheelchairs mean that more people can enjoy exactly what makes our parks so special.” The beach wheelchairs are made from a lightweight aluminum frame and have three buoyant tires. They navigate over sand with relative ease, can be taken into one foot of water and can be used by both children and adults. The beach wheelchairs are free for park visitors, and can be made available in any Saskatchewan provincial park.
