What is Surf Therapy?

Surf therapy is defined by the International Surf Therapy Organisation (ISTO) as combining the therapeutic elements of the ocean with the adventure of surfing to impact the physical and mental well- being of individuals world-wide positively.

Surf Therapy at Ocean Mind centres around skill development and capacity building. There are opportunities for our NDIS participants to transition to the wider Ocean Mind community, developing social skills and finding a place of belonging.
