Why is Surfing beneficial?
● Surfing is highly beneficial for one’s physical health – it strengthens the leg, core and back, while also carrying cardiovascular benefits, as reported by Better Health.
● According to The Wave, surfing also helps coordination and balance – once you master this extreme sport, you will have better coordination control.
● Studies have shown that surfing has a wide range of mental health benefits – RTE suggests that surfers are less likely to feel suicidal, they feel more confident and comfortable and they spend more time socialising than those who don’t surf.
Hawaiian Shirts Online is dedicated to helping those in need.
They decided to regularly support different causes by organising fundraising events.
