Stepping out of the box…and into nature

Taking therapy out of the room and into the ocean®

Our dynamic approach is known to have a positive impact, self-empower, and expand awareness for those participating. Specializing in working with teens affected by substance abuse, mental health and/or behavioral issues, we strive to focus on every aspect of their mental, physical, and emotional well-being. For many of our participants that are in recovery, surfing has truly been a transformative experience. Most have never tried surfing before, but end up leaving with a passion for it.

Why Does Recovery through Surfing Work?

  • Draws on all of the senses, compelling the participants to be fully present in the moment
  • Effective in either small group or individual settings
  • Helps to decrease anxiety
  • Is uniquely BOTH peaceful/calm like meditating (waiting for waves, taking in the sights and sounds) AND exciting (catching and riding waves)
  • Can replace the toxic highs with a natural endorphin rush from strenuous physical activity
  • Builds strength and self-esteem
  • Provides healthy opportunities to work on Social Skills such as building and forming appropriate friendships
  • Gives newly sober teens the opportunity to bond and build trust with peers and adults
  • It often becomes the highlight of the participants week
