Wave Project x dryrobe®

Award-winning charity, The Wave Project was born in the swell at Watergate Bay in 2010, each summer we welcome the Summer Surf Challenge to our shores. As ongoing supporters of their incredible work, we were particularly interested to hear about a limited edition Wave Project dryrobe®. 100% of the profits from each sale will go towards supporting the charity.

This partnership falls under the dryrobe®  Warmth Project, supporting charities and communities that share values of promoting wellbeing, through outdoor activity and protecting the environment. As dryrobe® also have their roots on Cornish shores, we were keen to find out more about their journey. From humble beginnings to supporters of epic events to a leading global brand.  

The Wave Project dryrobe

The most positive thing to come out of the growth of dryrobe® has been the ability for us to help support some amazing community projects, both locally and internationally. I’m really proud of the work we’ve done with The Wave Project and Surfers Not Street Children. Both of these inspiring charities change the lives of vulnerable young people through the power of surfing - something that’s really close to my heart.

dryrobe® 

The story and history of dryrobe® can be traced back to Cornwall, born on the shoreline and developed by regular surfer Gideon Bright. It was developed into the product we see everywhere today in 2010. The dryrobe® Advance change robe is used as much by surfers as everyone else. It's now the jacket of choice for many a dog walker up and down the country, not forgetting campers, triathletes, spectators, wakeboarders, mountain bikers... the versatility of the dryrobe® appears to be endless.

Founder and designer Gideon Bright has worked tirelessly ever since to continuously upgrade and refine the design. dryrobe® Advance products are now made with 100% recycled fabrics.

The Wave Project

The Wave project harnesses the power of the ocean to to improve the mental wellbeing of young people. We've previously shared the story of where it all began at Watergate Bay in a podcast with the founder Joe Taylor.

Now the charity is over ten years old and explores locations up and down the UK, helping over 1500 children each year access surf therapy.
