Mission Statement

Warrior Surf is committed to promoting physical and mental wellness for Veterans and their families through adaptive surf therapy.

Description

Through the Warrior Surf Foundation’s surf therapy program, we strive to enhance the psychological and physical well-being of Veterans, active duty service members, and their families through the experience of surfing.

The primary emphasis of the surf therapy program is on the provision of adaptive surf instruction through both small (2-5 person) and large (15 person) group surf clinics. After each surf session, there is a group processing component which emphasizes the use of mindfulness and related positive psychology strategies. When the weather is not conducive to surfing, stand up paddle boarding sessions are offered in its place.

All participants have the opportunity to participate in individual wellness coaching sessions with the program’s Licensed Independent Social Worker. These sessions are held on the beach and follow the group processing portion of the clinic.

Program participants also have the opportunity to participate in weekly yoga group classes. While this offering is optional, it is highly encouraged, as there are many physical and mental benefits.

Participants who successfully complete a 12-week surf therapy clinic are given the opportunity to serve as mentors to incoming participants (and to receive training in behavioral health awareness including stress management, active listening, and suicide awareness).
