Grant Trebilco was diagnosed with bipolar in 2012. People with bipolar are suffering from extreme mood swings. Happiness can change into depression within a very short time. Grant went for a surf and noticed the positive effect it had on his mood. He founded “One Wave” a non-profit surf community that wants to raise awareness for mental health issues like anxiety, depression and bipolar.


Every Friday people meet at the beach, dressed up in fluro colors. They talk about their problems, go surfing, do yoga and enjoy each others company. Nobody has to hide, everybody is welcome as it is so important to talk about it. Grant calls it “the simple recipe of saltwater, surfing and good mates”.
