“To keep the body in good health is a duty… Otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.” – Buddha

To surf (and live) better, you need to keep your body strong, flexible & injury free. That’s why you’ll also be training on the land everyday, performing exercises focussing on mobility, balance, coordination, agility, core control, as well as posture. These specific routines, combined with yoga & stretching sessions will help you gain endurance and strength, while preventing your body from injuries. Efficient training habits to take back home, allowing you to keep on improving your surfing abilities.


“ Mindset is what separates the best from the rest.“ 

Our health system also enhances mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.  Mindset is a crucial element to optimise your performance in surf and in life. We’ll give you the tools to develop a growth mindset, and strengthen your mind to perform better on land and in the sea.

You will practice:

  • Breathing exercises
  • Meditation
