Welcome to The Wave Project
The Wave Project an award-winning community surf project. Our primary focus is helping young people improve health and learn more through surfing! Our award-winning surf courses have been independently proven to help young people feel calmer, more motivated, more confident and more resilient. We run a network of surf clubs around the UK which are designed help young people develop both their surfing and life skills, and offer education-focused courses to schools.
Wave Project sessions are delivered by a mix of paid staff and volunteer surf-mentors who work in partnership with established surf schools. Some of our surf mentors started out as clients themselves.
We take referrals from professionals working with vulnerable children and young people, and also run private lessons for schools, charities and companies. Regular referrers include the NHS, social services, mental health services, GPs, family support services, counsellors and children’s charities.
