Surf therapy can be used to help people children who face social challenges and trauma make meaningful connections, build confidence and process their trauma. It teaches them coping skills and builds stronger communities that can support each other.
We are deeply inspired by the work of many charities such as Waves for Change and Waves Lobitos who have lead the way in this field. You can find information about their work below and surf therapy resources below.
