Surfing Australia and Soldier On have partnered to create the Surf Therapy Program to support those who have served their country by focusing on their physical and mental health.
Physical exercise and sports recovery have been proven to improve mental health and has been demonstrated with great success for veterans who participate in surf therapy programs in the USA.
The Surf Therapy Program will have two separate components - a series of intermediate surf camps at the Hurley Surfing Australia High Performance Centre (HPC) at Casuarina in Northern NSW, and a program of learn to surf lessons facilitated by Surfing Australia affiliated Surf Schools nationally.
Surfing Australia High Performance Centre Development: The development of Surfing Australia's High Performance Centre.
Surfing Australia’s purpose is to create a healthier and happier Australia through Surfing. To ensure that we fulfil that purpose we have created two fundraising initiatives to ensure that access to key surfing programs are provided to those Australians who might not normally get the opportunity.
