Sidmouth Surf Club Success

The Wave Project South Devon for the first time dived in at Sidmouth on Saturday, with a Surf Club session. Sunshine, fun waves and an awesome bunch of enthusiastic volunteers greeted our keen surfers down at the beach. The session was so much fun and was great to see the beaming smiles of everyone in the water.

The Wave Project in South Devon started in 2015 with Discovery Surf School at Bigbury, last year it expanded from Bigbury into Torbay with great success, thanks to the fantastic team at Reach Outdoors. However, some young people in South Devon where still traveling over 50 miles by car to reach a session when there is a beach closer to home. With Sidmouth it allows us to take  The Wave Project closer to some of our young people as well as connecting with a new community of volunteers.

We already have some young people from East Devon Referred to the Wave Project and we welcome more referrals with a hope to do a surf therapy course from Sidmouth in 2020.

The session was such a success that we are going to run another session on Saturday 12th October at 12:30-14:30. If you would like to volunteer please head to the website to register your interest. https://www.waveproject.co.uk/volunteer-sign-up/
