Surf therapy is changing lives around the world and we are backed by kind benefactors – without them, we cannot help.

Massive THANK YOU shout out to all those supporting Ocean Mind to realise its mission.

In 2016 I had a dream to share the therapeutic benefits of surfing with young people experiencing struggles with mental health. I approached the Torquay community with the idea of Ocean Mind. The whole community got behind the program and nurtured the idea into life. Without the support of local businesses, the community and local services Ocean Mind couldn’t have changed the lives of so many young people.

I would like to thank each and every person that has contributed to the development and growth of Ocean Mind. I am truly grateful and humbled by all your support and encouragement. This is my chance to pay my respect to each and every one of you. Welcome to the honour roll of Ocean Mind.
