Life is about real experience

(Screen time will get you only so far).

"Surfing is one of those sports that you need to be introduced to, and now we have the technology to bring the whole industry inland. We can start getting these kids, that would have never have the opportunity to get into surf, a facility where they can practise. There might not be any surfers in the middle of the UK, but in a few months we'll have a huge industry here".

A deep connection with water and nature

(It's a way of life).

"As a surfer, you're naturally exposed to the elements. This makes you aware of trash in the ocean, and consequently, to be interested in sustainability and making the ocean a safe environment. The surfing lifestyle promotes a greener outlook on life in general: it puts you in the moment and makes you want to do better and be better".
