Book Review – Surf Therapy: The Evidence-Based Science for Physical, Mental & Emotional Well-being, by Cash Lambert

A few years ago, I read a fascinating book on the surfing life, Barbarian Days by William Finnegan. With
Surf Therapy, just published by Cash Lambert, I’ve learned about surfing as a emerging, science-based
field to address mental health and addiction challenges. What a concept: asking humans to work
together in the outdoors to find their “zone” and structurally change the brain for the better. The
author takes us around the world to learn about surf therapy organizations and their therapeutic
successes. Surf Therapy describes yet another pathway to recovery worth considering.

“Surf therapy isn’t an elixir only to be experienced once…to maintain the therapeutic benefit, it must be done consistently.”
