International Kiteboarder Tom Court, along with ex Pro watersports athlete Sophie Mathews are on a mission to represent the lifestyle, sporting and business opportunities on Isle of Wight. Having both travelled the world and seen the power of sport and lifestyle transform many locations worldwide, they brought the same concept back home. Combining their vision with Tom’s video production and media delivery company, with Sophie’s fitness and corporate background The Active Island was born.

The Active Island aims to showcase the Isle of Wight in a fresh and exciting light, and offer people the opportunity to experience it however they desire. From its World class sporting environment and stunning lifestyle options we aim to create the ultimate Island experience by utilising existing and emerging local businesses.

We also endeavour to target a global audience and create awareness of the 'new good life' Through our existing platform, media house and services, we hope to draw on our extensive experience within the action sports industries and to present fresh marketing techniques to Island based companies. That will not only have a positive impact on Local Businesses, but will also offer the opportunity to connect with International Business, as we've already proven.
