About Us

Yellowave Beach Sports Venue opened in March 2007. It was set up by Katie Mintram, her husband Spencer Mintram and her dad Alan Randall. As a beach volleyball player Katie was determined to re-create the beach lifestyle she’d experienced after living in Huntington Beach, California and Manly Beach, Australia. Katie, Spencer and Alan set up Yellowave Ltd in 2002. It took 5 years to develop from the first meeting to opening the doors in 2007. It’s the first centre of its kind in the UK with a dedicated team passionate about beach volleyball and sand based sports.

Alan passed away suddenly at his home on Wednesday 10th October, 2012. He was 66 years old. His death came as a huge shock to everyone at Yellowave. Alan’s positivity, lust for life, support and friendliness to everyone he met will never be forgotten. He is greatly missed!

Our Philosopy

The Yellowave philosophy is reflected in everything we do. We bring the surf culture to sand, offering an alternative active beach lifestyle. We believe our actions should have an onward positive effect.

Respecting others and respecting the environment is key to how we operate. Yellowave is all about getting out there and having a go – getting sandy and having fun. We create a total beach sports experience, open to all, that we hope you wish to try.

Our Charity - Renewable World




We are proud to support Brighton based charity Renewable World who work to tackle extreme poverty in Africa, Asia and Central America, by providing remote communities with sustainable renewable energy. By using wind, solar, hydro or biogas, Renewable World pumps clean water into villages, lights up homes so children and adults can study in the evening, refrigerates medicine and food, and perhaps most importantly, fuels small businesses (such as irrigating crops to sell or opening shops or cafes in the evening) which generate sustainable income. This way communities can break the cycle of poverty. For more info click here or check out his two minute film.
