The Mindful Surfer
How to Surf like NO ONES watching

How to Surf like NO ONES watching

May 12, 2022

The lads talk about the crazy cool world of surf footage - photos, videos, instagram and how it interplays with our progression and the egoic roller coaster ride of "oooo I like good" vs "oooo I look baaaaaad" and how to carve our way through that world with a smile! 

The lads philosophise how much Surfing is about staying in the middle between having goals, ambition etc (if that feels natural) and knowing how to stop ego from getting too in the way of why you started and why you want to carry on - JOY! 

Stay stoked guys!

Feel better = look better!

Feel better = look better!

This week, we explore the inside-out job that is how you feel when you're on your board and how affecting it is to how you look on your board - how much spray you produce, your style - everything

If you can surf with a pure stoke, your performance levels go up and we're humbled by this every time we surf! 

Stay stoked guys!

This weeks intro covers everything involved with a life aiming for balance and yet still getting in your waves - yes, there are partners, kids, jobs, dogs and chores that need tending, 

BUT...

You've got to take your chance to get your waves!

And...

There's NOTHING to feel guilty about that! 

Stay stoked guys!

We're back....

After Portugal Trips, Covid and half term holidays, we're back in the studio!

Will covers big wave stories from his recent Portugal trip, 

Liam chats about the pro's and con's of quad fins in a wide tail board, 

We then both get deep on what it is happy, successful surfers do differently - in how their habit formation moves away from black and whites "on or off" the training/nutrition towards a more nuanced, daily routine. 

Its great to be back! 

Much love and stay stoked, 

Will & Liam

Navigating Surf Marketing BS

Navigating Surf Marketing BS

December 20, 2021

This week, we go deep on surf kit; the in's and outs of wetsuits, boots, boards and the marketing that goes into them. 

After we've put the surf marketing world to rights, we go onto share insights on how to manage anxious thoughts in everyday life. 

Lastly, we go onto explain how normal it is to go through an up and down journey in your surf career - that almost every surf you ever have will be different to the last one and learn to let go of total control of this natural process. 

Stay stoked guys!
