Surfing in Cornwall: there's room for everyone | Photo: Jim Champion

Surfing is a new way of to fight depression in Cornwall. The UK authorities, through the National Health System, are putting up a pilot project to help people with mental health needs.

Surfing is seen by doctors as an excellent sport to regain confidence, self-esteem and restore social interaction. The patients undergoing the surfing therapy are aged between 12 a 25.

Since 2009, there is also a scheme targeted to armed forces personnel suffering from post traumatic stress disorder.

The contact with the water and the ocean is a great way to overcome mental health problems.

And riding waves answers a very old motto: only a surfer knows the feeling.
