Play and Surf

We develop programs to educate people with or without disabilities while they learn how to ride the waves.

PROGRAM TO EDUCATE THROUGH THE PRACTICE OF SURF.
THIS PROGRAM UNITES:

  • Sport
  • Education
  • Social inclusion
  • Comradeship
  • Cooperation
  • Respect
  • Knowledge of the environment

In short, is a School of Life.

Play&Surf uses surf and paddle surf as tools to improve social relationships, physical conditions and autonomy of youngsters with disabilities. We do so with camps and events where youngsters with impairments have to learn how to get by both in sports practice and social matters.

Why surfing?

  1. It is a contemporary sport, very popular among young people
  2. It is highly-regarded in society
  3. It requires constant physical activity
  4. It allows the development of social skills with other people, with or without disability
  5. As a sliding sport, it provides benefits linked to balance and the control of one’s body while in motion.

Goals

Camps

Our camps have an educational side. For this reason, we aim to stimulate a kind of learning that favors the knowledge of other areas, such as emotions and affections or social skills. We also aspire to strengthen the participants bond with nature, which is why we visit several places on our shore.

The atmosphere created in these camps fosters learning: we encourage reflection, self-criticism and self-awareness, as well as environmental conscience.

With these camps, we fulfill three basic aims:

  1. Education through the practice of sports
  2. Social inclusion
  3. Respect for the environment

Who can attend?
Children, youngsters and adults with or without a disability.

Where?
