Beach at Sunset


I have been a keen surfer since the age of 13, catching the bus from my home town to Aberavon in South Wales after school to enjoy the benefits of the Ocean.  It wasn't until I was a little older that I realised the Ocean was my escape, there was something about it which kept drawing me back, I was hooked.  The theory of 'Flow' pioneered by Mihaly Csikszenmihalyi involves being fully immersed in an activity, where time passes by in the blink of an eye, you receive immediate feedback, you're fully concentrating on one task, the activity is challenging and most of all the activity is intrinsically rewarding.  I challenge you to find a person who has not experienced these conditions whilst surfing.  Upon more research and training in Counselling and Well Being I couldn't help but be drawn to the fact that sometimes people need an experience in a natural environment to help them get over the many hurdles modern life can throw at us and this is how Waves of Connection was born.  We're a Community Interest Company, which means we're a non profit making organisation.


At Waves of Connection we will work with you side by side, helping you in your journey to overcome your personal barriers, reduce stress or simply enjoy the outdoors. Our mission is to provide a non judgemental, professional and nurturing service, ensuring you not only get access to the benefits of the Ocean but also develop skills and strategies to help you thrive on land.
