A team of business angels has today completed a management buyout of action sports publisher Wavefinder Limited from LiveWave Media Plc for an undisclosed sum.

WavefinderLtd , who publish a range of surf and snow travel guidebooks, has also raised working capital from investors to fund the development of new titles and distribution channels, and explore new sponsorship and advertising opportunities.

“We are delighted to gain full ownership of this exciting company,” said Adam Coxen, who will be on the new board. “The Wavefinder brand is well-respected in the surfing and snowsports worlds, and the new team are putting in place an ambitious plan to develop the range of titles on offer by building on current strengths and developing new market sectors.”

The company publish a series of pocket-sized Wavefinder surfing guidebooks covering Australia, Indonesia, USA & Hawaii, UK & Ireland, Central America and Mexico. Their Snowfinder ski and snowboard guides include titles on the USA and France, with titles on Canada and Austria currently in production.
