I read this article from Surf The Greats about what surfing does to your brain. It releases an amount of good chemicals, such as Adrenaline, Serotonin, Endorphins and Dopamine. It also alters different types of brain waves, such as Gamma, Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta waves. No wonder surfing makes me feel intensely happy. Read the article here.
