Surfing develops body and mind, balance and strength, endurance and awareness

Surfing is a platform that helps you get to know yourself better, develop competencies, skills, accept yourself as you are, become better, be energized to achieve goals and see new horizons. Surfing in the prism of personal development helps to learn and improve such qualities as decision-making at the instance, the ability to admit one's mistakes, take risks, and manage emotions.
These are the qualities you use at work to cope with a task and difficult situations. Surfing provides an opportunity to learn how to be focused and relaxed at the same time.
There is no doubt that the ocean is therapeutic. Currently, there are more than 27 studies proving the effectiveness of surfing's influence on interaction between people, communication, the ability to cope with stressful situations, post-traumatic disorders, improving the mental health and well-being of children and adults.
Surfing is attracting more and more people, it is a trendy popular destination that adds a special charm to our program. After all, this kind of trip is a new format that combines work on oneself, physical activity, rest and self-development.

Surfing, ocean, water — all this allows you to feel belonging to the natural world, plunge into the world of freedom, while realizing that you are part of the whole. And harmony with the ocean and oneself helps to develop and change. Surfing allows you to experience the brightest and widest range of feelings in a short time, increase your emotional stability, and stabilize your emotional well-being. The feeling of belonging to a large, healthy and growing community also has a positive effect on a person. You feel that you are not alone, you are united by the intention to learn new things, love for the elements, the desire to achieve results, enjoying the process.
Have you ever tried surfing? From my own experience, I will say that after any ride, I feel calm, relaxed, contented and energized. I feel this very moment and enjoy life. Time flies when surfing, emotions go off scale, the force of nature does not allow you to turn off the process. Surfing is a kind of meditation. Surfing makes life better, grips completely and never let you go.
— Simon Shulgin, co-creator of the program
In the corporate world, we often restrain our emotions, sometimes it is difficult for us to be ourselves, trust people and share with them. We are faced with tough deadlines, decision making in a situation of uncertainty, dissatisfaction with our work-life balance.

Surfing allows you to develop, work with your own self-esteem, increase your sense of confidence and accept yourself in the moment, allow you not to give up and keep working on yourself, despite difficulties and mistakes, to go forward to achieve a result.
Surfing has taken a strong place in the well-being direction, working to preserve and restore mental health.
