Surf Action has recently completed their third residential for combat veterans suffering Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
The local charity has been developing the residential programme since December 2011. These are funded by Peter Stevens form The Lotus Group who has been a regular visitor to Cornwall since the 1960’s. After seeing an article in a local paper he stepped forward and offered support and funds to purchase a minibus and fund three weeks of respite for combat veterans.
Surf Action has twice returned to Prussia Cove due to the relaxing feel of the natural environment and the coastal setting. Director Russ Pierre states “The weeks are about helping the veterans move forward whilst providing an active week of surfing, walking, swimming, yoga, horse riding and art workshops”.
The most recent week held between the 23rd -29th June welcomed six combat veterans from as far as Lowestoft in Suffolk. Combined with veterans living locally here in Cornwall it was a hugely successful week. The objective of these weeks is to introduce the tools needed to move forward in life and provide ways of coping with the everyday pressures and impacts of PTSD.
RAF crewman Scott Todd joined the group whilst awaiting medical discharge due to PTSD commented, “When I arrived with Surf Action I was apprehensive but very quickly I felt an 'Awareness' and ease in their company. No feelings of trying to explain myself existed. On the contrary without even speaking, a feeling of understanding was present. Awareness, understanding, and a knowledge of 'what we have all been through' is very apparent, with not even a spoken work being needed. I think it makes Surf Action a VERY special group with a kindred spirit. I'm very grateful and very humbled to be invited in to be a part of that”.
Surf Action will return to Prussia Cove in October the final residential week of 2012 that will focus on helping the entire family. The charity a continually seeking sponsorship to continue these residential weeks that help to remove feelings of isolation and bring like minded veterans together. Surf Action hold weekly beach clinics held each Wednesday and Friday at Gwithian Towans, nr Hayle, Cornwall meeting at 11.30pm at Sunset Surf Café. For anyone interested in more information or would like to join the group please contact Surf Action on 01209 613300
On the weekend of the 7th /8th July one of the largest events on the South Coast of England comes to Brighton. The Paddle Round The Pier 2012 is a celebration of water users.
The event, which has been running since 1996 and last year raised over £30,000 Once again the main aim was to raise as much money as possible for three charities; this year the chosen charities were the RNLI, Winston’s Wish and Surf Action.
Russ Pierre said “it was great to be chosen as one of the charities for this event as it is so close to what we do with surf action, its about getting in the water and having fun, using the ocean and sea as a place to get active, fit and
Money is raised by the businesses that attend and also the thousands of visitors that travel from far and wide to soak up the atmosphere of this unique event. The event is completely free to visit with lots of events throughout the two days with the final event being the actual Paddle Round The Pier.
Surf Action took a team up to the event to show support and raise further awareness of the Cornwall based charity that supports combat veterans suffering mental and physical injuries. Founder Rich Emerson took part in
the 26 mile marathon paddle in what can be described as poor conditions. Joined by five others this made the completion of this marathon all the more amazing. Competitors all had to use a standard 10’6” surf life saving race
board and the distance took Rich Emerson just under six hours and each return leg against a 1.6 knot current and head wind. Nearly hypothermic on return Rich was smothered in blankets and bundled into a warm minibus to
Volunteer Liam Nichol took part in the 3k swim in the same difficult conditions, whilst director Russ Pierre and veteran Mike Warne chose the easier, scenic and more fun event on the Sunday with a leisurely 2k paddle on their
surfboards amongst 300 others out enjoying themselves and celebrating how great it can be to use the water as an activity.
Rich Emerson stated “This was a great event for Surf Action to spread the word of what we do here in Cornwall, we have made some great friends and raised a huge amount of awareness our charity. The paddle was horrendous
but I just kept thinking of why we are here and that got me through, this was a great weekend”.

We just finished a residential last week and had a group of injured Royal marines before that. This coming weekend we are up in Brighton for the Paddle Round the Pier so will have all the flyers there and the boards on display and taking part in the paddle.
Next weekend we have the Surf Rodeo at Sennen and this will be a great promotion as we have the Navy, Army and RAF surf teams taking part. I was up a Watergate last weekend (see images below).
If you would like to come down and see our new Surf Action Office and Art Studio here at heartlands that would be great. Anyone is welcome.
