Kids growing up with autism face unique challenges that can make it difficult for them to develop self-confidence and make friends. Learning to surf offers a fun, healthy way for children to develop that confidence, boost their mood and make connections with others. That’s why Ocean Heroes was formed by Sam Moyle, Luke Hallam and Tom Johnston, who teamed up to get it off the ground in 2016.
We provide an opportunity for children on the autistic spectrum to take part in organised sport backed by a highly supported, safe and inclusive environment. By running events and one-on-one surfing lessons, we offer every kid the chance to experience the thrill of riding a wave.
