Waves of Wellness

The Waves of Wellness Surfing Experience (WOWSE) is a free, eight-week, evidence-based learn-to-surf program for veterans. It facilitates functional recovery while promoting social inclusion, engagement, and enhanced quality of life. The program’s primary focus is to introduce surfing to participants as a way to improve physical health, mental health and wellbeing in a neutral, non-intrusive environment. The program uses the ocean and surfing as conduits to explore, stimulate and facilitate positive therapy outcomes. 
This a learn-to-surf program; no prior surfing experience is necessary, although anyone with surfing experience is also welcome. 
All weekly groups consist of a 30–45-minute mental health 'expression session' on the sand followed by a learn-to-surf component.
