Absolutely. Over the past few years Surfing Australia has delved into these benefits to help create certain programs such as our women’s program ‘Shore Thing’ which focuses on connectivity, confidence and promoting aspects of mindfulness, which has been shown to produce improvements in mental health. Science has proven that surfing helps with your mental health, as the endorphins you release while being out in the ocean amongst all the natural elements provides the perfect fit for a healthy mental space.
