dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to investigate psychological, physical and social well being in a team and an individual sport. It has been contextualized within a broader public health paradigm with special reference to health and sport psychology. This new paradigm re-establishes a balanced view of both illness prevention and health promotion. To explore the relationship of psychological, physical and social well-being in a team and an individual sport, the study entailed a triangulation approach which consisted of a quantitative and a qualitative component of the team and the individual sport. Psychological well-being was measured using Ryffs Psychological Well-Being Scale (PWB); physical well-being was assessed using the Physical Self-Perception Profile (PSPP) and social well-being was measured using the Perceived Social Support Scale from Family (PSS-Fa) and from Friends (PSS-FrJ. Results from the study indicated a significant relationship between perceived body attractiveness and surfing. Surfers perceived themselves as being more physically attractive and more confident in appearance. A higher importance of sport competence was recorded by the surfers which suggest that being able to master and ride the surf is important. More importance was placed on conditioning for the soccer players. Soccer was experienced as being a more competitive sport than surfing, and subsequently, more emphasis was placed on physical condition, stamina, fitness and confidence in ability. en_US
