WHO AND WHAT WAVEWISE IS:
Wavewise is the first official Surf Therapy programme on the South Island of New Zealand recognised as member in the International Surftherapy Organization (ISTO).
In Surf Therapy we believe in the healing powers of the ocean and in the resilience every surf session provides for our daily life!
WAVEWISE uses this tool and teaches our youth and adults a practical tool to deal with life’s personal challenges through learning to surf. By utilising experiential learning in surf sessions as life lessons WAVEWISE helps to enhance and sustain mental wellbeing!
Whatever wave thrown at us, we can learn to cope with it!
WAVEWISE is a Social Enterprise: One paid adult surf session covers one youth surf session!
All profit from adult surf sessions are used to sustain youth surf programmes!

HOW WAVEWISE WORKS:
WAVEWISE Surf Therapy combines the benefits we get from Surfing and from Social Work Profession to get the life enhancement we all need to deal with every day challenges:
BENEFITS OF SURFING: You connect to nature, you focus on the present moment, you physically exercise and waves are proven to be a natural mood booster!
BENEFITS OF SOCIAL WORK PROFESSION: We are experts in helping to reflect on personal strategies, in facing and overcoming fears and we are well trained in letting this process happen at the participant’s pace!
–> Let’s not just talk about strategies, let’s PRACTICALLY experience them!
