San Sebastian

Patris Surf accompanies through sports and leisure activities boys / girls, adolescents (aged 6-17 years) and groups with integration and socialization problems, or who do not have a safe and stable environment to develop in the personal sphere. We use a differential element, sport as a tool, whose values ​​and culture encourage socialization and commitment in Donostia San Sebastián.

port has the power to transcend the barriers of sex, race, religion and nationality. It promotes health and wellness, improves self-esteem, and teaches leadership, teamwork skills, and perseverance. Women in sport challenge gender stereotypes, become inspiration as role models, and portray men and women as equals. For this, we have sportspeople supported and trained by our team to carry out their work as monitors in a natural but not intrusive way.

In the past three decades, the childhood obesity rate has tripled. Today one in three children is overweight or obese. The numbers are even higher in children from families at risk of social exclusion, where almost 40 percent of children are overweight or obese.

Childhood obesity in these families is increasing faster than in other segments of the population.

Nearly two in five children between the age of 2-19 are overweight or obese. Children are at higher risk of being overweight or obese during childhood and adolescence. Childhood obesity is a contributing factor to an increased risk of health complications such as diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, cancer, and asthma.

Through sport we seek the integral development of boys and girls and their enjoyment to promote socialization with other young people outside their environment. For this we have different activities that these young people can access:

• Surf-bodyboard
• Skate
• Lifeguard and first aid
• Swimming
• Functional training

The activities are dynamic and have the ability to adapt to different perspectives that arise.

Our main objectives are to reduce the economic difficulties for the participation of young women and groups of women in activities, to promote learning and adaptation to the environment; We are talking about elitist sports, to which children and women from families with economic difficulties are very difficult to access, so we want this type of activities to reach all sectors of the population.

Through a combination of comprehensive strategies and common sense, PATRIS aims to guide children and groups of adults towards a healthy future. It also seeks to give parents useful information and promote environments that benefit a healthier life, offer information, and above all help the different groups we work with to do more physical activity.

We want to get these groups to discover new physical, psychological and social experiences with these alternative and innovative activities.

Work through leisure values ​​linked to sports culture, in a controlled and carefree environment, which have an impact on day to day and mainly on self-confidence and motivation to face adult life.

It is an innovative and pioneering project on the Basque coast, faced with the demand of surfers, the association detected a mainly economic gap in terms of the limitation posed by the practice of this socially and economically elitist activity, to which It is being given a leisure and active tourism approach that is very attractive to society but unattainable for some. In turn, many sectors have recognized that women increasingly broaden perspectives, bring new ideas and innovations, and reach new audiences. However, there is still a long way to go before we see total equality in the world of sports. Girls and women around the world get fewer opportunities, less investment, training and safety when they play sport.

The regular practice of physical-sports activity should be a constant throughout the lives of all people due to the many benefits it brings. In particular, the specific contributions to their physical, social, emotional and cognitive development, also laying the foundations for physical activity and participation in sports throughout life. In relation to benefits at the physical level the positive effect that stands out the most, among many, is the prevention of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases; a psychological one, in which one can highlight, among others, the associated anxiolytic effect on the feeling of general well-being of the individual, and a social one, with the possible effects on social promotion.
