Adaptive Surfing

We want everyone to be able to enjoy The Wave and we are big supporters of adaptive surfing, and work hard to provide an accessible surf experience for as many people as we can.

The term ‘Adaptive Surfing’ refers to those with additional needs or challenges, such as those with a disability, that require extra assistance, specialised equipment or an adapted surfing experience to match their abilities.

We are working to develop our adaptive booking process and experience, and at this stage ask anyone interested in adaptive surfing at The Wave to get in touch to discuss the individual or group wishing to surf.

Please contact us at hello@thewave.com with the subject title “Adaptive Surfing Request”. We will require additional information on the individual/s before any booking is arranged, to ensure we can fully deliver a great experience, with the appropriate support and equipment. Please also reference any preferred dates/times, ensuring it is at least 3 weeks’ notice.

We ask that anyone wishing to surf with us has a degree of water confidence and that you consider the risks and challenges, as well as the amazing opportunities and benefits, that an action sport such as surfing can have. For additional general information about The Wave and our accessibility please see our FAQs.

Into The Blue: Blue Health and Surfing in the 21st Century

Surfing to me is more than just a sport, a culture, a way of life. It’s my medicine, my reset button, the thing I do to rediscover the best version of myself. I’m delighted to share the news that The Wave has today published ‘Into the Blue: Blue Health and surfing in the 21 st Century’ - a report bringing together research into Blue Health, surfing therapy and its benefits for mental health and wellbeing.
