Surf a Ostia uses surf as a form of therapy. It is true that a lifestyle surrounded by the sea brings a lot of positive benefits to our health. It has impacts on our skin, immune system, articulations, and breathing. Combining those positive effects with a relaxing sport that puts you in contact with the natural elements and your inner self has tons of benefits.
Mental health is a broad and complex multidimensional concept that involves not only psychological factors but also emotional and social variables.
Surfing heals. It has been proved that catching waves works like a medicine and helps to deal with depressive symptoms, negative thoughts, insomnia, irritability, anxiety and bipolar disorders, and self-destructive behaviours. Surfing not only improves your physical fitness, but it also clears your mind and acts as an emotional stabilizer. Its Zen effect soothes the mind and balances your emotions.
Thanks to surfing, kids experience contact with the sea, become aware of their bodies and develop balance and coordination.
