Volunteering to Knotbliss – Annabels Blog
I’ve always felt comfortable in the water and as a keen surfer myself, it’s great to share the stoke of catching a wave, with other young people, often it’s even better than surfing for yourself! Watching young people grow in confidence throughout the course of the project, paddling out, standing up, or even just their enthusiasm to get in the water, which in some cases was non-existent at the start of the project. As a volunteer this makes you question if it’s you that’s helping them, or them helping you. Surf therapy is contagious.
The highlight of volunteering so far- Unicorn Surfing! Alisha (the young person I surfed with) demonstrated her famous Unicorn move while surfing to the other kids, suddenly Unicorn surfing was quite the trend!
