Surf a Ostia

Surf a Ostia has now been running for over four years with the "Ostia Surf" sports club and the "Giuliano da Sangallo" secondary school. Children aged between 7 and 10 years of age attend the Laureus Sport for Good project Surf a Ostia. The projects helps between 10 and 12 children every year.

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.
