Changing lives through Surfing
Sharing the Stoke
Ocean Mind Inc. is a not for profit charity that provides therapeutic surf courses for young people who are experiencing difficulties in their lives. We use a mix of surf therapy and mentoring to create a therapeutic environment for young people to challenge themselves, learn new skills and develop and strengthen relationships with family friends and the broader community.
Our surfing courses are evidence-based and designed to help clients to improve their self-confidence, resilience and motivation. Projects are delivered by our fantastic team of volunteer surf mentors, and overseen by a qualified youth worker and surf instructor. All of our staff, paid and voluntary, have undertaken training around our participants needs.
