How to dial your boards

October 31, 2022

This week, we do a BIG intro just on boards - what we've loved, loathed and found "in between"...

We go onto talk about the impact surf coaching and having people see you surf can have on your progression - and how our ego's and character can be tested in this progression journey too! 

We finish our mega board intro with some mindfulness practice and talking about how to let go of addictive food habits that might be holding you back from getting to the next level in your surfing (and life!) 

Stay stoked guys!

Wetsuits, Wave Size & Waking Up

Wetsuits, Wave Size & Waking Up

October 10, 2022

This week, we cover a proper wetsuit review and call out the brands we love (and don't love) and get talking about the old adage 'you get what you pay for'. 

We then discuss conquering bigger waves and the mindset that goes into them...

The chat evolves onto 'waking up' - to becoming more aware of how you are, how you feel and how you think - and how closely related it all is to the breath! 

Stay stoked guys!

Relax…no one actually cares how you surf!

Relax…no one actually cares how you surf!

August 8, 2022

This week, we dive deep into letting go of ego - the part of us that cares so greatly that we don't fall off or kook it up in front of a crowded or intense line up...

Liam discusses recent surf trips to the Bristol wave park - loving life in board shorts no less!! He rode his twinny and goes onto to talk about a thought experiment into what it might be like to test out loads of different boards and approaches to surfing at a wave park and what it could do to advance your surfing. 

Will chat's about bumping into "the shit wave police" in the sea on recent Cornish excursions - and how different his morning and evening surf's were (performance wise) 

The lads then finish on chats about mindfulness, the power of raising your consciousness via plant medicines and how to raise the stoke by taking better care of your body. 

Stay stoked guys!

Don’t become a great surfer

Don’t become a great surfer

July 18, 2022

This week, we intro on what makes a "happier surfer" - someone who seems to continually enjoy this amazing sport compared with their peers. 

In Mind, Body & Stoke, we discuss diet and Will's recent "zero carb" approach and how it's helped his knee and overall health. 

We also go deep on the recent Kelly Slater docu-series that's been showing on YouTube...and how despite surfing greatness - the GOAT doesn't actually seem happy or stoked with it.  

Liam also fly's in with probably the best Rob Machado impression of all time! 

Stay stoked guys!

Being true to your own surf happiness

Being true to your own surf happiness

June 20, 2022

This week, we talk about the impact flow experiences coming from surfing, meditation, sports and activities and how individual that is -

for some its;

bigger waves, for others....

it's small waves, 

for some it's;

surfing socially with big groups of friends, 

for others...

It's surfing alone..

What ever it is - its about being authentic as to what YOUR version of surf happiness you like best!

Stay stoked guys!

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!

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!
