OneWave is a non-profit surf community raising awareness of mental health with a simple recipe...saltwater therapy, surfing and fluro. OneWave believes that everyone should have the chance to ride waves and openly talk about mental health without being judged.
Since launching in March 2013 OneWave has created a global impact, raising awareness and reducing social stigmas around mental health issues through their Fluro Friday Sessions. Fluro Friday's started at Bondi Beach and consist of surfing, free yoga and a “anti-bad vibes circle” allowing people to share stories in a safer environment. Wearing bright colours makes people happy and help start conversations about an invisible issue.
Fluro Friday's have since gone viral, with sessions held at more than 200 beaches globally, from New Zealand to Norway. In 2018 the OneWave community attracted global media attention when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan joined the anti-bad vibe circle wearing colourful leis for Fluro Friday at Bondi Beach.
Boardies® first met the guys at OneWave at their 4th year birthday party in 2017 at Fluro Friday, Bondi Beach. Over the years we have always connect with the crew when in Sydney and are huge advocates of their community and mental health awareness and support programme.
Celebrating 9 years of Fluro Friday this month, we have launched some Limited Edition T-Shirts and Caps, made in a small local factory in Bali, Indonesia.
5% of sales will go to OneWave to support their mental health charity and community programme.
