Into The Blue: Blue Health and Surfing in the 21st Century

Surfing to me is more than just a sport, a culture, a way of life. It’s my medicine, my reset button, the thing I do to rediscover the best version of myself. I’m delighted to share the news that The Wave has today published ‘Into the Blue: Blue Health and surfing in the 21 st Century’ - a report bringing together research into Blue Health, surfing therapy and its benefits for mental health and wellbeing.
