This week in our final episode of the season we feature Bart, Wes and Whit from the SUP Vets, a not for profit organisation who provide SUP surf retreats for those veterans needing support or a new sense of purpose following their exit from the military
I speak to this Top-Gun school graduate, Navy Seal and Ranger about their collaboration together and working with Sean Poynter (APP World Champ) Ian 'Kanga' Cairns surf legend and Daniel Hughes - professional SUP surfer and the benefits it brings to warriors trying to connect back to their lives outside the military and combat zone.
Please note this episode contains upsetting topics and some 'industrial language' however is a life affirming initiative delivered with huge love and great benefits for their fellow service colleagues.
