About your host

Hey, I'm Ben! I began surfing in Newcastle when my dad dragged me out the back as a young boy and I was instantly hooked. The ocean is where I love to kick-back, make new friends and keep healthy. I am an Occupational Therapist and my passion is helping others improve their mental wellbeing so I'm stoked that I get to share that love with everyone through our surf therapy program.

About Waves of Wellness Foundation

We are the Waves of Wellness Foundation (WOW), a mental health surf therapy charity, committed to changing lives by delivering for-purpose innovative programs for people experiencing mental health challenges. Get wet and have a good time, we say. And it’s a simple enough creed, but the message runs deeper than that: it’s OK not to be OK, and that you don’t have to – ever – go it alone.
This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to Waves of Wellness Foundation. .
