OUR MISSION:

The Warrior surf foundation is committed to bringing Veterans and their families together to promote mental and physical well-being by exposing them to the unique experience of surfing.

BACKGROUD:

Founded in May 2015, on Folly Beach, SC by American combat veterans and surfers, the WSF addresses post-service transition challenges such as Post Traumatic Stress, Moral Injury, Survivor's Guilt, and TBI. 

In just over a few years, the WSF has provided services to hundreds Veterans and Active Duty Service Members through our weekend Surf Camps.  Each 6 week session helps Warriors overcome anxiety with social situations, crowds, and creates non-Battlefield bonds. 

The nature of war and its aftermath can be counteracted by using the ocean as a healing remedy. The cycle of post-combat inactivity is broken, and the body and brain work through residual feelings of discomfort and distress while in the water.

The Warrior Surf Foundation provides:

  • An effective outdoor therapy environment
  • Structured and supervised physical activity as an alternative to prescription medications
  • Peer support and encouragement during surf sessions. 
  • Peer assistance with VA issues and ongoing benefit questions
  • Assessments by our staff therapist to track improvements and areas of concern.  

 

you CAN help our warriors move forward.
