The Wave puts out call for first session – You in?

The Wave has launched a search for people to appear in its first line-up. The team at The Wave is calling on people to nominate someone with an inspiring story who they think deserves to surf the first public waves this autumn. 

“I’m often asked who is going to ride the first waves and people assume it will be me,” said Nick Hounsfield. “I’ve always said that I don’t want it to be about me, and that there are many more deserving people. The Wave is about more than the individual – it’s about people coming together to share the joy of surfing and we want our first line-up to reflect that.”

“We’re asking for nominations for inspiring people to ride our first public waves. We’re looking for ordinary people that have done extraordinary things, everyday heroes that have overcome big problems or individuals who’ve achieved something amazing.”

People can nominate by posting a video on social media explaining who they are proposing and why, tagging @thewave and using the hashtags #FindYourWave and #Giveawave. Alternatively nominations can be made via the Wave website.

“The nominees don’t need to know how to surf, as we are looking for a range of people of all abilities, from complete novices to dedicated surfers. Whether their passion in life is surfing, or they’ve never stepped on a board before, we’ll make sure they have the best time surfing those first waves.”

The Wave team will then select the winners to be part of a special launch event at the end of October.
