Atlantic Surf Company makes cool, funky, eco conscious clothing in deepest Devon. They hand screen print their surf inspired clothing and have created a fresh new look and style which we just can’t get enough of!
Atlantic Surf Company have also teamed up with The Wave Project, a charity that changes the lives of young people through the magic of surfing! The Wave Project began in 2010, when the local NHS Trust in Cornwall funded The Wave Project to run a six-week pilot scheme, to examine the benefits of surfing on the emotional health of young people working with professional services. The pilot project used a psychological evaluation to assess whether six weeks of surfing helped the group, who were referred by a range of services such as CAMHS, social services and mental health charities.

Untitled2The results of the pilot showed that going surfing once a week helped people feel more confident, improved their outlook and gave them a sense of fun. Encouraged by the results, The Wave Project was established as a not for profit company. Atlantic Surf Company give 10% of all profits to this charity to keep this amazing project running!
