Op SURF UK is a joint initiative, executed by Help For Heroes Sports Recovery and supported by the Endeavour Fund. Op SURF UK aims to build on the Amazing Surf Adventures adaptive surf programme out in the USA for wounded, injured and sick (WIS) Service personnel and veterans.
Many of the WIS who have taken part described the incredibly positive impact on their well-being and many have continued their love of surfing.
In September 2018, Op Surf UK will see some of the best instructors from the UK and US teach 20 WIS to surf and experience the healing power of the ocean. It will be Op Surf UK’s first year being hosted in Bude, Cornwall by the Bude Surf Veterans who offer a huge amount of experience and support to all veterans involved and a key opportunity to continue surfing within their veteran community.
We are proud that Op SURF UK is a very accessible endeavour, with top rated instructors to ensure that everyone will experience the rush of catching their first wave.
Op Surf in both 2016 and 2017 have been a huge success and we are very grateful for the support of AIG, our corporate partner in the volunteers they provide.
