With the wirmachenwelle programme, European kids ages 11 to 17 receive support through sport – especially surfing – for at least a year.

Throughout a school year, the kids participate in at least one Wirmachenwelle sport course a week. Those courses are designed to prepare the kids for the last part of the programme – the Adventure Week. 

The Adventure Week includes daily surfing sessions in the ocean, which is why year-round courses use related sport disciplines such as skateboarding, stand-up-paddling and swimming. In addition to sport, the project includes pedagogic methods in order to give emotional support and guidance to its participants.
