Back in 2009, when Owen's beard was tiny and David hair wasn't grey, they talked and talked about opening an adventure centre together. One day, their girlfriends (now wives) told them to stop wanging on and actually DO something about it. So they did! 

With £600 each and a couple of laptops in Owen's front room, Land & Wave was born. Sophie, (Owen's old housemate from university) was the first ever employee and the snowball started rolling. 

Today the company is thriving; with three directors, three partners and 10 managers keeping things all tickety-boo. Add in a squad of 30 amazing seasonal instructors and you can see how Land & Wave is one big festival of fun.

2009 - Land & Wave is born
2010 - Sophie our first 'employee' joins
2012 - Moved from Owen's lounge to Upton House. It rained A LOT
2013 - The 'marketing team' was created
2015 - Moved to our own premises in Swanage
2017 - Got our own campsite
2018 - Living the dream! Loving life

We're a close-knit bunch of family and friends working together to create amazing adventures for everyone. People are at the heart of what we do and why we do it. 

The company is made up of best friends (brothers from another mother), sisters, partners, brother-in-laws and old friends, plus a whole bunch of funny, energetic people we've picked up along the ride.

The weird thing is that it's not weird. It's bloody great. 

Every year, our 15-strong full time team is bolstered by 30-or-so fresh-faced, energetic beauties with bronzed skin and white teeth. Our wonderful seasonal team makes for one hell of a Summer. Many of our seasonal staff return year-on-year, but as we grow, we also employ lots of new talented people too.
