Benefits Of Surfing For Kids
by Take Off Surf
Surf as a sport has multiple physical and psicological benefits. It helps kids to integrate socialy and to acquire fundamental values, apart from building the right development of the bones and muscles. These are some of the benefits:
Integration of children in society. Although surfing is not a team sport like football, but it is generally practiced in the company of other surfers.
It teaches them to follow rules, such as not interfering with other surfers and knowing what waves can be surfed.
It helps them open up and overcome shyness because it consists of activities carried out in groups of children of similar ages.
Through sports, children learn to recognize the value and rewards of continuous effort and training in the medium and long term.
It puts a brake on hyperactivity or possible aggressive tendencies because it channels the excess energy.
It promotes relaxation and releases the physical and nervous tension that often accumulates during the week.
Help children recognize, accept and respect the fact that there are people who know more than them, in this case surf instructors.
Improves spatial orientation and coordinated movement.
Improves motor skills in general.
