The Waves of Wellness (WOW) Surfing Experience is a 4-week clinical mental health and learn-to-surf program for first responders and emergency services personnel aged 18+, who want to use surfing as tool for managing mental health challenges. This program gathers people together to have open conversations around stress, management, mental health, with a focus on recovery and learning from each other.

This free wellbeing activity is for first responder families (check out who we serve here). Register yourself, and up to one other adult (your partner, family member, or someone from your inner circle). Encourage a first responder colleague to register too, or make connections on the day.

All Fortem Wellbeing Activities are underpinned by the 5 Ways to Wellbeing – a set of practical lifestyle habits which contribute to our overall mental fitness. This model by our partners at The Royal Melbourne Hospital is based on widely researched, effective strategies for improving mental health and wellbeing, and forms the foundation of all Fortem Australia events, programs, and activities.
