A FEW SIMPLE WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR SURFING (from a barely-above-average working class surfer)

For many surfers, surfing is a lifelong sport. One in which there is no final destination, no finish line to cross. Even as average, working class surfers (as I like to refer to myself) we get locked into this obsession of always wanting to take our surfing one step further. So, if you’re a bit like me, and looking for a few ways to help improve your surfing and up your fun factor out in the water, I’ve put together an easy-to-follow list here!

THE CONDITIONS ARE ALWAYS CHANGING...

THE CONDITIONS ARE ALWAYS CHANGING...

The conditions are always changing... Out in the waves. Here on dry land. While we breathe and sweat on the yoga mat. The world around us is constantly moving through seasons and cycles and transformation. And we are much the same. So while we can't always control the conditions, the question becomes, "How can we respond?"

LIVING MY YOGA

LIVING MY YOGA

Yoga is: stretching, breathing, meditating, union of the body,mind and soul… And while these answers are not necessarily wrong, through my own practice I’ve come to learn that yoga is so much more.

FOLLOW YOUR BREATH

FOLLOW YOUR BREATH

Follow your breath. Watch it as it enters your body and fills up your lung with sweet, fresh, pure air. With each inhale you’re breathing in new energy. And with each exhale you are letting go of all the things that no longer serve you.
