The Healing Power of Surfing

with Jamie Marshall, PhD

We recognise the power of experiences to inspire, heal, and empower individuals.

That's why we were so excited to talk to Jamie Marshall, author of the world's first PhD on surf therapy, to find out more about the the science behind surfing's power to transform our mental health.

Having initially studied history, Jamie completed an MsC in Physical Activity for Health after working for the Wave Project, a non-profit delivering surf therapy experiences across the UK. He completed his PhD in early 2022, and is now a full-time post-doctorate researcher at Edinburgh Napier University.

We spoke to Jamie about what inspired him to make surfing the subject of his PhD, what we can learn from a scientific approach to well-being, and how scientists and practitioners can work together for mutual benefit.
