Mr. Cooper Chapman

Professional Surfer and Founder of the Good Human Factory


Cooper Chapman is inspiring people all around the world to improve their wellbeing by finding their purpose through connecting with their values.

Cooper is fueled by happiness and kindness. Traveling the world as a professional surfer for the last 10 years has offered him countless opportunities, including representing Australia on multiple occasions and being rated in the top 100 surfers on the globe for the last 7 years. Cooper is still currently competing and chasing his dreams of being a world champion surfer.

From his own experience of trying to achieve balance, regarding his own mental health, he realised that this was the same for many others. With the alarming rise in suicide rates, especially among youth, he decided he wanted to make a difference. He watched his sister lose two friends to suicide in a fortnight while in year 12 art high school, and at that moment Cooper’s mental health organisation The Good Human Factory (TGHF) was born.

Helping people is Cooper’s passion. Using his platform and relatability, he aims to provide his audience with the tools to continually grow and improve their quality of life through the power of reflection, sharing stories, connecting with and learning from others. He looks to inspire a positive and balanced life focusing on gratitude, mindfulness, responsibility, kindness and empathy.
Cooper also hosts his own podcast called “Good Humans” where he speaks to high profile people about their stories of resilience with over 100k listeners over the past year.

Over the last 5 years, Cooper has been running surf camps as a surf coach. In addition to these surf camps, Cooper has run mental health workshops for over 2500 students, and over 500 corporate participants. His workshops focus on finding your purpose through living with core values.
