Founder 

Hey, I'm Frazzle

My pronouns are he/him and I live in London, UK (correct - that's not near the ocean.)

5 years ago, I began my learning to surf journey.

I booked a surf camp abroad for 7 days, along with my boyfriend. Two days before our trip, I realized it was actually illegal to be homosexual in the country we were going to surf.

 

We took a risk, pretended to be friends on our holiday, and dealt with the daily anxiety of being outed. In that moment, I never wanted another LGBTQ+ surfer to feel the same way I did. Ever.

 

I'm passionate about protecting our oceans.

The more I've observed, the more barriers I have become aware of that exist in accessing our oceans, and surfing. Mixed in with how diversity is lacking within ocean related sports. 



 

 

The solution was obvious, create a community that promotes access to the oceans for under represented groups - to protect our ocean. Because the more people we can get into and enjoying the ocean. the more people willing to protect it. Enter, the Queer Surf Club.

I'd love to hear your feedback and suggestions - you can email me directly via the contact button.

Hi, I’m Meg

 

My pronouns are they/them and I live in Cornwall with my partner Sophie.

I have loved the ocean for as long as I can remember. Whether I'm splashing around in the shore break, clambering over sea cliffs or surfing waves, there's a sense of freedom like no other.

 

Coming out in my late 20s wasn’t easy and it was at this time I truly understood the healing powers of the ocean, it was the one place I could go that would soothe my anxiety, stop my head from being in overdrive and relax my aching muscles. Knowing first-hand the benefits the water can have on our mental health, I am passionate about making the ocean a more accessible place for people.

People protect what they love and our ocean is in desperate need of protection right now. The more we connect with the ocean, the more we will take action that is needed to tackle the ocean and climate crisis. 

 

I’m so proud to be part of the Queer Surf Club, the line up can be an intimidating place so finding like-minded people to go surf with and share the stoke is a game changer for me.
