"If you're having a bad day, catch a wave."
Why do we find surfing so therapeutic?
Surfing is such a great escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life! We all have some kind of stress in our every day life that we would like to just leave behind even if for just a few hours.
Surfing has a great way of keeping us in the moment! Our fight or flight mechanism is held at bay and we can really experience a flow state which is a very nice feeling.
The exercise in its self releases good chemicals into our body which also gives us a natural high, surfing is fun and very rewarding and motivation is easy to find! Unlike going to the gym
"The best surfer out there is the one having the most fun."
