Surfing for Farmers

Surfing for Farmers

Pressure on the rural sector is greater than ever and New Zealand farmers continue to take their own lives at an alarming rate. Surfing for Farmers is an initiative that is helping improve mental health and wellbeing in New Zealand rural communities. Launched in Gisborne in 2018 by Stephen Thomson, people around the country have seen the success of the Gisborne model, and reached out to replicate the programme in 15 other regions around New Zealand (16 total).

The learn-to-surf programme provides an opportunity for farmers to step away from what can be an all-consuming business, get fresh air, exercise and interact with other farmers, rural families and industry professionals.
