Surfism is a philosophy that views existence in terms that correspond to surfing. Portrayed metaphorically as a breaking wave, the mind emerges from the confluence of spatial and temporal relations. The link between reason and perception is represented by the surfboard responding to the wave as the wave responds to the reef. The relationship between the wave and the reef represents perception, where the mind apprehends its surroundings. The relationship between the surfboard and the wave represents reason, where the mind determines how to engage those surroundings. These spatio-temporal relations provide the structure for a model of the mind, depicting the cognitive processes that influence what we 'make' of reality.
