Ocean Mind Incorporated

Ocean Mind Inc. runs therapeutic surf sessions and courses for young people who are deemed to be socially isolated. This can be through mental health difficulties, rural isolation, family problems, disability or traumatic experiences such as bereavement. Our surfing projects 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 surf instructor. All of our staff, paid and voluntary, have undertaken some training around our clients' needs.

Jam packed weekend of surf, smiles and sunshine. All the #oceanmind crew had a ball getting their weekly dose of #surftherapy.

Thanks @gorideawave for the support

Sometimes we loose our balance and take a stumble. Life can knock us about. Sometimes the only thing to do is smile, dust yourself off, regroup and get back out there.
