Waves of Wellness

The Waves of Wellness learn-to-surf program uses surfing as a conduit to explore, stimulate and facilitate positive physical and mental health outcomes. Each week, the program starts with addressing a different topic through a 45 minute group discussion supported by clinical expertise, allowing participants to learn new skills and strategies with like-minded individuals. The session concludes with a learn to surf lesson which allows participants to build resilience and develop coping strategies to support better mental health. 

This a learn-to-surf program; no prior surfing experience is necessary and all levels of experience are welcome. 

“Getting out there, hitting the waves – even if I stack it, which I do plenty of times – I always walk away happy. The whole group walks away with a smile. It’s been really enjoyable, and I want to keep doing it.” - Nick Gurowski, Royal Australian Airforce veteran.
