Next Step for One Wave

What makes YOU feel gewwwd? Most people I know would agree with me when I say that there is only one thing in this world that cures a bad day in 2 seconds – and that’s diving into the ocean. That’s why since we opened QT Bondi in December of 2015 we have been such a big support of our buddies Grant, Sam and Joel.

For those of you that don’t know – the trio run a non-profit surfing community that raises awareness for mental health. They have taught over 120 people in 8 different locations around Australia how to use surf therapy as part of their mental health recovery. They believe that (like my salty miracle dive) it takes just ‘one wave’ to lift your spirits and turn that frown upside down. It may take a lot longer to completely conquer your demons but with weekly sessions of positive vibes, crazy fluro get-ups and salt water you are definitely going to be heading in the right direction.

OneWave’s Surf experiences have been such a great success that the boys decided to take it that one step further. With one of OneWaves very own Surf Experience Founders Joel Pilgrim taking the reins as the Director of WOW.

What is WOW? WOW stands for Waves of Wellness Foundation and it’s their new health promotion charity – with DGR charity status the boys will now be able to give more people the best possible surf programme experiences and grow into something even more amazing and successful than what they are now.

After speaking with Joel over the phone and hearing his energy towards the new structure it’s hard to imagine it won’t succeed with flying fluro colours. He was so positive and enthusiastic it just made me realise why these boys are in this game – it’s because they’re great at it! They’re all such inspirational, quirky characters that the world definitely needs more of. We can’t wait to see what great things come of WOW! Congrats legends!
