Our History

Way back in the midsts of time (2009), when Owen’s beard was tiny and David’s hair was only slightly grey, they talked and talked about starting an Adventure Company. One day their girlfriends (now wives) told them to stop wanging on and actually DO it. So they did…

With a hard saved £600 each and a couple of laptops in Owen’s front room, Land & Wave was born.

Today the company is thriving; with four directors, one partner and eight managers keeping things running ship shape. Add in a crew of around 35 amazing seasonal instructors and you have all the ingredients you need to help people have amazing adventures in the great outdoors.

Where we are

We’re based in Swanage, bang in the middle of the Dorset coast; it’s an amazing place to live, work and play. We have pop up bases in Devon, South Wales and Snowdonia that are incredible for Challenge Weeks and Outdoor Instructor Training. We’re outdoor people and we get to spend almost every day adventuring, jumping in the sea, working in the woods, walking up hills or playing on sea cliffs.

Epic adventures in incredible places
