Wave Alliance Graduates

We are stoked to have worked with a range of individuals and organisations around the world to introduce impactful surf therapy programmes to their communities. These organisations are all on their surf therapy journey, delivering sessions, engaging their communities, and monitoring their programmes to create an evidence-based safe space of their own. Some have completed their first pilot programme cycle, and – with the support of the Wave Alliance team – written up their first evaluation reports, which you can download and read below, to hear their journey in their own words.
