Friday – Bay style


OneWave is a non-profit surf community tackling mental health issues with a simple recipe…saltwater, surfing, good mates and Fluro Friday’s.

1 in 5 people experience mental health issues each year and 65% of these people people don’t seek treatment. This is not ok.

OneWave lets people know they are not alone and encourages them to get in the ocean, surf it out and talk about it.

It doesn’t matter if you’re riding wave for the first or the hundredth time…you never forget that feeling of being on a wave and letting everything go. OneWave is all it takes…to free the funk. To give you hope.

OneWave- LYALL BAY, WELLINGTON – holds a monthly Fluro Friday sunrise session to raise awareness for mental health. We dress up in the brightest outfits possible and surf/swim/do yoga/disco? sure WHY NOT! Fluro makes people smile and it gets people asking important questions, which are normally avoided about mental health. Everyone is welcome and it’s a free event.
