The following video explores the relationship between mental health and surfing. Put together by a South African expat Michael Durban who funnily enough originates from his name sake – Durban. The narrative follows an ex-army veteran called Martin who had his legs and arm amputated whilst serving in Afghanistan. Martin talks about how surfing has helped his mental health along with an informative interview with The Wave Project, which is a UK (and abroad) surfing based charity. Humbling, probably the best word to describe what Michael has put together for us.
