Camp Kudzu South will be heading to the beach with Tybee Surf Lessons to bring you a glimpse into the positive attributes of surfing. The two-hour lesson will include 15 minutes of a ground lesson where we learn how to paddle out, pop up and ride back. The remainder of the time will be spent in the water practicing our new skills and enjoying the health and well-being benefits surfing has to offer.
Research is being done to support surfing’s therapeutic effects on an array of ailments. Surf therapy is becoming accepted as an alternative therapeutic therapy to help tackle mental health, depression, and anxiety all over the world.
Families are encouraged to make a day out of this opportunity and stay at the beach before or after their session time.
