Local & Global Community Initiatives


To reach, coach and influence the world through surfing by improving physical health, changing mindsets and empowering people to reach their potential, so they can then do the same, leading and impacting others in all spheres of life.

We believe we have been given the gift and privilege of working within the surf industry and have a responsibility to steward our resources well as a business.  This is not just so it provides an income for our family and staff but so we can live beyond ourselves an impact those less fortunate in the local and global community around us.  We have chosen to support the following groups below with no financial benefit to ourselves. If you would like to find out more or are interested in supporting any of the local or global initiatives please contact us at:

North Norfolk Surf Life Saving Club - Local Initiative

We provide unused wetsuits and boots for the club so that attendees and members who cannot afford their own are still able to access the sea and take part in club training sessions and events.  We also support and provide donations in the form of surf school vouchers, surf clothes and hardware for prizes at the clubs yearly Christmas party.


Soul Surf - Local initiative

We work in partnership with Soul Church UK based in Norwich and Cromer providing free SURF or SUP lessons, food, drink and hear a leader share a life impacting message.  This is for the local 16yrs+ community and runs monthly during May to September.


Surf Life - Global initiative

We are committed to resourcing Surf Life and its community project ‘Surf Life Development Program’.  They reach out to the youth on the Kommetjie Township and surrounding area in Cape Town, South Africa by imparting invaluable life principles whilst offering free surf lessons.  We support them by the provision of used wetsuits, rashvests, boots and surfboards from the surf school as well as donations from local surfers.
