OneWave started in Bondi, Australia in March 2013, and has been spreading the love world-wide since then.
One Wave is a non-profit organisation tackling mental health issues with surfing and the wellness of the ocean. They’re all about helping people understand they’re not alone, and that ‘it’s OK not to be OK’. Mental health issues don’t discriminate, and 1 in 4 people experience some form of it each year. Yet 65% of these people don’t seek support as they’re afraid of that other would think. One Wave’s aim is to change the way people see mental health, and they need your help!
Fluro Friday is the main awareness campaign for OneWave, and has spread to more than 50 beaches worldwide. It’s all about putting on some fluro/neon colours, getting together with your mates and talking about mental health, while getting a fix of salt-water therapy in the process. Sometimes one wave is all it takes to get you smiling again.
