Fortem Australia

Learn to Surf and Mindfulness Session | Illawarra

What an amazing opportunity to learn some essential surfing skills and bring some mindfulness into your day too. The surf school will demonstrate surf safety, surfing equipment, correct surfing technique, and then assist in wave selection and assist in board riding appropriate to each individual’s physical ability. They will then conclude with a short mindfulness practice. The learn to surf session is an adults only program commencing at 11am for some light refreshments, and then from 12 noon to 2pm the learn to surf session will begin.

This Fortem activity can help improve and maintain a healthy level of physical and mental health, and the overall feeling of well-being and fitness that you feel after a surf.
