Shore Thing Surf Therapy

Shore Thing is our UAE-based community initiative that launched in December 2021. Designed to heal and enable recovery from issues such as PTSD and depression, Surf Therapy leans into the science of Blue Mind. The experience of being in the water creates a profound connection that has proven to be beneficial to various communities all over the world. We provide surf sessions, SUP events, small to large scale paddle outs, corporate and educational events.
