Warrior Surf is committed to promoting physical and mental wellness for Veterans and their families through adaptive surf therapy.
The unfortunate effects of war can be counteracted by using the ocean as a healing remedy. Our program helps to break the cycle of trauma, so the body and brain can work through residual feelings of discomfort and distress.
In addition to Surf Therapy, WSF provides one on one wellness training, and group yoga classes. Focusing on mindfulness and resiliency, these offerings empower our Veterans to maintain a healthy lifestyle, regardless of whether the ocean is close by.
WSF is a supportive community of Veterans and their families. We easily empathize with and understand one another. Not only do we enjoy sharing stories, we enjoy making memories as well. Many people come for our surf clinics, but they stick around for the tribe.
WE BELIEVE IN THE MEDICINAL POWER OF THE OCEAN. WE BELIEVE THAT SURFING AND THE CAMARADERIE IT GIVES RISE TO CAN CHANGE THE COURSE OF A LIFE. WE BELIEVE THAT EVERY WARRIOR DESERVES THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE AN ACTIVE CONTRIBUTOR TO LIFE OFF THE BATTLEFIELD… AND WE ARE LIVING PROOF!
