Drawing on Self-Determination Theory, the individual determinant, motivation, was examined to determine if specific motives are associated with young peoples decision to participate in surfing and if these motives vary according to age and gender.The findings suggest that the determinants and motives for young people to participate in surfing are similar for males and females.
