In 2010, Joe Taylor ran a six-week pilot project in Watergate Bay, Cornwall, where 20 young people with mild to severe mental health issues were given one-to-one surfing lessons. The Wave Project was the UK’s first ‘surf therapy’ course, funded by the National Health Service. 

The pilot was such a success that the charity now runs projects for 8–21 year-olds, referred by schools and mental health and social services, all around the UK.
