Surfing and Mental Health

Posted by SSBJJ

Children and adolescents adds to growing evidence that surfing really is good for your mental health. But you don’t have to have a mental illness to get the benefits.

Here’s how you can use what we’re learning from our research to boost your own mental health. Evidence showing the mental health benefits of surfing ranges from improving self-esteem and reducing social isolation to treating depression and other mental disorders.

Such evidence mainly comes from specific surf therapy programs. These combine supportive surfing instruction with one-to-one or group activities that promote psychosocial wellbeing.
