We provide research-based small CO-ED group surf therapy programs and retreats following the Groundswell Community Projects Trauma-informed curriculum. Our programs are for all who want to find their therapeutic and restorative belonging in Mother Ocean's waves together. Participants will engage in somatic embodied learning through mental health awareness, mindfulness, ocean conservation, self-love, sea-love, and community.
About The Program
Our surf therapy programs are designed to support and encourage the development of your continuous personal ocean practice. Small-group sessions will have the same facilitators and volunteers for each therapy session. We will explore integrated therapy and individual surf goals, including mindfulness, gratitude, and healing our relationship with self, others,
and the ocean. Surf therapy sessions will assist and support you in building resilience and deepening your knowledge of the ocean, surfing, waves, and equipment. We will have weekly homework to incorporate on land what you are learning throughout sessions. Our retreats will provide Yoga, Music therapy, and surf therapy sessions together to create intentional community and harmony through each session. Working together we will support and assist you in creating your very own surf practice to ride these waves of life.
About The Facilitators
Sessions are hosted by two facilitators, a Surf Therapy Facilitator, a Board-Certified therapist, and a Surf Safety Facilitator, a certified surf instructor who has gone through our Surf Therapy Training. Their goal is to hold the highest level of physical and psychological safety for all participants; that way, they can dive deep in the waves, surf, wipe out and keep paddling out again.

"Surf Therapy is Awesome! I found a heart-shaped rock with many stones on it during my mindful walk on the beach. The rock reminded me to accept the loss of my granddaughter! But to also remember the ones who are still with us. It taught me to stay in the present! And for that, I thank Jody and Will for sharing surf therapy with this community"
