OneWave is all it takes

OneWave is all it takes

A 12 week surf program that is making a big difference.

OneWave Surfing Experience (OWSE) is a non-profit surf community that tackles funks like depression, anxiety & bipolar with a simple recipe: salt-water, surfing & many a smile. 

We’ve seen them most Friday mornings down at Manly & Bondi spreading the community word with their Fluro Friday’s and we were stoked when they got in touch with us at TNG to look at a campaign for a pilot Surf Program launching in Feb 2015.


With support from Eastern Sydney Partners in Recovery (PIR) & aftercare the good people at OWSE have put together a skilled team to get people struggling with mental health back up on their feet through surfing and beach activities over a 12 week surf program.

TNG looked at creating a set of illustrations & campaign that captured the fun, hands-on approach OWSE brings to all they do. 

Giving the OWSE a unique look and feel that they can role out in the future, nationwide. The use of watercolour, some signature Barrett illo’s & a bright OneWave tone of voice sets this campaign apart and we can’t wait to see this program launch at the end of the month. 


Check out more of what OneWave is about at and if your in the area go join them any Friday at 6:30am wearing your brightest & tightest ; ) fluro apparel!!

After the huge success of the pilot 12 week course – OWSE is now looking at getting out across all of Australia. To celebrate and get more people in the know they held a launch party at Bondi Pavilions and on the beach to celebrate!
