Being mindful of what is around you in the ocean; when you’re paddling out to the lineup, when you’re dropping in on […]

The Surf Check. How to Survey the Beach One of the most important observations you can make when you start surfing is to understand how to read the ever changing conditions of the ocean. These include the ingredients you hear or see in the daily surf report forecast; winds, tides and swell. They also include […]

As an experienced surfer, you develop a keen sense of the dynamism of the ocean and its environment. Through daily or regular observations, each time you check the surf or travel down to go surfing on the coast, the time you take paying attention to these ocean dynamics strengthens your skills in competently surfing it.

So much of what I do when I coach and teach surfing, stand up paddling and mindfulness yoga is about being in the moment with my students; to hear, see and witness them, to carefully observe so I can see where to suggest, cue, or support them in realizing a wave caught, the balance of […]
