The Catch a Wave UK company directors; Anne Harrington (founder and Managing Director) and Kit Sugden (Marketing Director), and other supporters of the business will be present and indeed going for a surf themselves! Anne says: “A huge challenge for me when I initially began surfing, was feeling 'Too old, too unfit, too busy, not cool enough' to surf. I feel there are a lot of people, who also experience this and although they would LOVE to give watersports a go, may feel they have to go through so many hurdles before they even get in a wetsuit! Our aim is to encourage people to use both watersports and complementary therapies to improve their health and wellbeing, in particular those who would not normally have access to these areas. We want to give others the chance to experience catching a wave too, and to discover a whole range of watersports and complementary therapies in a relaxed, fun and professional environment.“ Catch a Wave UK Carving a way forward for health and wellbeing!
