"We're very pleased to become an affiliate partner of The Wave and help spread the word about this incredible facility. It will be somewhere that we visit on a regular basis over as it allows us to check in with the surfers we manage and support all year round. We were there the day it re-opened following lockdown and the quality of waves produced is just unreal" explains MAG Founder, Freddie.
"Our client George Carpenter is currently training for next years Men's Qualifying Series as well as gunning for a spot in the 2024 Olympic team, so he relies heavily on consistent swells to train in. British surfers compared to those in Spain, France or further afield have always been at a disadvantage when it comes to having consistently good conditions to practice in year round. What The Wave offers George and other talented young surfers is so exciting for the future of British surfing. That's why we're delighted to be doing our bit to help promote it in anyway we can!".
