WE ESTABLISH HOPE IN THE LIVES OF VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILIES – ONE WAVE AT A TIME
Warrior Surf Foundation (WSF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that works to provide free surf therapy, wellness coaching, yoga, and community to Veterans struggling with PTSD, anxiety, depression, transition issues, and other mental health issues. We believe that all Veterans deserve the right to live lives to their fullest potential.
Our 12-week program is designed to challenge Veterans to grow and heal by pairing the experiential activities of surf and yoga with psycho-education. Our program creates the optimum environment for maximum retention of resiliency, positive psychology, and mindfulness.
Our surf program works in tandem with our wellness program to enhance physical mobility and mental health.
wellness + YOGA
Veterans will attend yoga and wellness sessions during the 12-week program to work through 12 modules built around the concepts of resiliency, positive psychology, and mindfulness.
Our sustainable and organic community serves as a support system and network for Veterans as they navigate through life’s ups and downs.

Warrior Surf Foundation is changing the way Veterans are accessing mental health care by incorporating evidence-based practices into 100% free programming created and implemented by the community that surrounds them. By having boots on the ground, we are best positioned to understand, advocate and provide for the needs of Veterans.

I came through the program without many expectations. I could not be happier that I pushed myself to try something new and get over my discomfort. The personal growth I have had during and since completing the 12-week program is immeasurable. I can honestly say that I am not the same, and hopefully never will be again. I was stuck in endless cycles of anxiety and depression and my coping behaviors were entirely unhealthy. Since then, I have incorporated so many new practices and tools in coping with anxiety and depression that I never knew were so accessible. Warrior Surf taught me the importance of pushing myself, accountability with others and again with myself, and the value of being present in the moment. One of the biggest things I gained through this experience was community. I didn’t even realize that one of the biggest things from the military I was missing was camaraderie, and that is something I have regained with Warrior Surf.
