How does my contribution to WOW help?
Your contribution to WOW helps us continue to implement surf therapy programs for community members in need. Your support will allows us to run programs year round and increase our reach throughout Australia, taking the experience of adventure therapy to new locations. We are currently designing programs to deliver away from the coast, therefore your donation helps us reach these people in rural, isolated communities.

What’s the difference between OneWave and WOW?
OneWave takes care of all things mental health awareness with Fluro Fridays, while WOW deals with the treatment and support programs with the WOW Surfing Experience. The two organisations share a common goal, and work together to promote positive mental health, and smash the associated stigma.
Why did we change?
In order to structure the organisation for expansion of the surfing experience, and to gain access to charity status. This means that all donations to WOW are tax deductible. This shift also makes the differentiation between Fluro Friday and the Surfing Experience super clear to the community.
How will OneWave and WOW work together?
WOW is proudly supported by OneWave, and together we are working in partnership to create sustainable, and long-lasting mental health change. Upon completion of the program, participants from the WOW Surfing Experience will join OneWave’s mainstream awareness activity of Fluro Friday. Fluro Friday participants will continue to be the essential volunteers for the WOW Surfing Experience programs.
Will Fluro Fridays still take place?
Yes, absolutely! Every Friday at beaches all around the country. For more information on beach involved andlocations, visit www.onewaveisallittakes.com
