The Only Educational Surfing Center of its Kind in the World

The unique educational idea at the basis of HaGal Sheli is the use of wave surfing as a tool for personal and social development.

Surfing is a fascinating extreme sport which is practiced in an unpredictable environment and requires finding balance, coping with changing weather,

dealing with uncertainty, falling and getting back up, and staying steady in the face of multidirectional currents. We believe that by facing these unique situations, teens can develop the confidence and self-efficacy needed to overcome any challenge life presents them. In a series of weekly meetings – the teenagers taking part in the program get individual support and participate in an individually designed plan for their personal empowerment, all within a unified group.
