Surfing has given my son confidence and self esteem that, as a teenager living with high functioning autism, he never had before. This amazing work should not be underestimated.
I just wanted to report to you how different my student has been since she started your project. She was on the verge of school refusal, and it was often very difficult to get her into school. Since starting The Wave Project she has been brighter, more communicative in school and sociable and her attendance is currently 100%.
My son has been being bullied at school which has seriously affected his confidence. Taking part in the Wave Project and conquering his fear of falling off the board has really helped increase his confidence. Thank you.
My client’s confidence was already on the increase, however after taking part in The Wave Project she was actually beaming! She really enjoyed being back in the water and thrived as a result of being involved. Her self esteem and confidence have increased and most of all it made her happy. She was enthusiastic about her time The Wave Project and would have loved for it to have been longer.
After doing the Wave Project I felt much more confident. I was discharged from hospital and went on to become a volunteer.
When I’m in the water, I can literally feel my anger going away. It’s really rewarding being able to help other people, just like others helped me
My client loved the Wave Project. When she spoke about it she became more animated and couldn’t help laughing at herself. From a professional’s point of view the project and staff did everything they said they would. Really great to have this to offer to young people.
Doing The Wave Project made me feel kind of new. If I’m angry before surfing, the sea washes it away and I feel happy
