Surfing is many things: exciting, exhilarating, enriching, and, above all, empowering. The benefits of surfing are not only physical but also mental. With a healthy dose of sun, salt, and exertion out on the waves, your mood will get a significant boost and so will your confidence.
It has long been argued that participating in any sport can uplift your mood and improve your stamina, but studies have now proven the superior benefits of surfing. A California study has shown that a mere thirty minutes in the water can significantly improve your mental state. The psychological benefits of surfing are palpable for those who live for the next big wave, but this newest study confirms that those feelings are a direct result of increased endorphins and serotonin.
The “happy hormones” released during your surf session compile to create an unquestionable sense of empowerment. By utilizing every major muscle group and benefiting from some fantastic aerobic and anaerobic side effects you will feel amazing in both mind and body. Plus, you can pick up surfing at any age and still get those same benefits. The weightless feeling of being in the water makes surfing feel low impact even though you’re hard at work.
With the improved attitude and physical wellbeing that comes with surfing you’ll feel on top of the world and ready to conquer anything.
