We were established in 2008 upon a request from a group of individuals that had volunteered in the Post Tsunami Aid Relief Program, Thailand 2004.Their original request was for a “Post apocalypse coastal survival course”, as they were unable to find one suitable in the UK. After what was a great day, we decided it was a lot to fit in a one day course. We redesigned the Course and divided it into the new Courses that we now run, from then on Coastal Survival was born! August 2008.
