Our Mission: Serve Vererans
The Warrior Surf Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit national organization, provides a novel approach to healing combining the physical and psychological benefits of surfing with the proven benefits of Positive Psychology to restore the entire Veteran and their family through surf. 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. In addition, surf sessions are followed by a group processing component with an emphasis on the use of mindfulness and related positive psychology strategies.
The program’s wellness philosophy follows a positive psychology model. In accordance with that model, the following goals are identified: to enhance emotional engagement through the participation in enjoyable, rewarding, and challenging activities such as surfing, paddle boarding, and yoga; to provide opportunities for accomplishment and mastery of new skills through adaptive sports; to facilitate an increased sense of belonging and connection with others through group surf clinics and peer mentoring; to improve emotional regulation and distress tolerance skills through the practice of mindfulness inherent in surfing and yoga.
