Ocean & Surf Therapy Non-profit

Ocean & Surf Therapy

Ocean and Surf Therapy is an evidence-based experiential therapy that has been shown to increase overall mental health, happiness and lead to behavioral changes.

Surf therapy is an intervention that combines the therapeutic elements of the ocean, incorporating aspects of mindfulness with the adventures of surfing to impact the physical and mental well-being of individuals.

Benefits of surf therapy treating mental health and substance use disorders:

      • Increases mindfulness
      • Builds self-efficacy
      • Activates “Flow state”
      • Reduces cravings
      • Reduces anxiety/depression/PTSD symptoms
      • Alleviates insomnia
      • Improves cognitive concentration

– Our Mission –

Stoked on Life is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide, promote, and research ocean and surf therapy as an experiential intervention for individuals struggling with mental health and substance use issues regardless of socio-economic status. This is accomplished by providing surf and ocean therapy clinics, programs, and community with licensed clinicians and expert surf instructors.



Surf therapy sessions consist of small, ninety-minute groups facilitated by licensed clinicians and surf instructors using mindfulness and flow skills to engage in surfing/processing therapeutic session.

Sessions begin with land instruction and mindfulness activity, followed by surfing in the water with instructors.

The remainder of the session is on land where participants process with a clinician.
