Celebrating 10 years of Surf Therapy

This is the story of Waves for Change Co Founder, Apish Tshetsha and his journey with Surf Therapy over the past 10 years, starting out with 10 kids coming down to the beach on a Saturday to reaching over 2000 children weekly at our 5 sites in South Africa in 2022.

Waves for Change provides child-friendly mental health services in communities where these services are under-resourced and often inaccessible. Surf therapy has given children a chance to challenge themselves in a positive and safe environment where caring adults and supportive peers are always available.
