It's the notion of doing things differently. It's celebrating the quaint and quirky. It's about connecting the curious in an authentic, approachable and supportive way with the ocean and each other.

The OMBE Way

Authentic

Surfing comes in all shapes, sizes and approaches. From longboarding to performance and all the alternative paths and boards along the way. Regardless of your chosen form or function, surfing requires you to activate all your senses in your own way. You must be grounded and present. Intrinsically feeling, but externally aware. That's when the fun begins.

Approachable

The OMBE Way encompasses the essential layers of awareness about the Ocean – the Mind – the Body – the Equipment to enjoy the freedom of surfing. It’s about tapping into the simple freedom of exploring, making, discovering and feeling. It makes surfing accessible and enjoyable for anyone, anywhere, at any age. It's a guiding philosophy to approaching the ocean and life. The minute you understand it, tap into it, feel it, you start to experience the essence of simplicity, calmness and harmony of being in flow with the energy of the ocean.

Connected

A community committed to experiencing the fun and freedom of surfing. Surfing, like life, is an individual pursuit best enjoyed with others that celebrate, encourage and support you on the inevitable up and downs of your journey. It's about sharing the lessons learnt and instilling a sense of pride, enthusiasm and ownership over one’s journey in the ocean.
