The Gifts of Surfing

January 02, 2023

Surfing and the surf community is such a gift. Inspired by SurfingUSA we list a few of the favorite gifts of surfing below and invite you to share yours. Let us know how surfing is a gift for you or tagging us on your social media posts.

  • The sense of community and friendships in surfing does span generations, geography, race, gender and background. There truly is a wave for everyone and sharing it together creates lasting bonds and memories. 
  • Surfing is a full-body workout, requiring strength, balance, and cardio fitness.
  • Surfing naturally creates resilience and adaptation. Our playing field is constantly changing and surfers are constantly reading the wave and making adjustments. It’s not surprising that surfing is used to effectively treat a number of mental health conditions such as PTSD, anxiety, depression, and stress.
  • Surfing offers a true escape and solace away from all the hustle, bustle, electronics, and worries on land. 
  • The beauty of the ocean, marine life, shorelines and weather is stunning. It’s truly the best playing field and playground, and we blessed to share this spirit it with you.

Thanks to @SurfingUSA for the inspiration
