Surf-Body Connection grew out of the need to help keep surfers involved surfing longer in life. A 2012 study performed by SFIA, revealed that between the ages of 35 and 44, approximately 53% of surfers stop surfing, and, worse, that between the ages of 45 and 54 we lose another approximate 30% of surfers from the sport. We know that the benefits that surfing can bring overall health and wellness, well-being, piece of mind, as well as forge long lasting friendships and improve a sense of community. Yet, despite all of it’s great benefits, many of which help combat and prevent long term disease processes, we see people decrease their participation in the surfing as they age.
