— 5-Session Surf Course —
Awaken Your Inner Surfer
(Starts October 3, 2020)
“Surfing is kind of a good metaphor for the rest of life. The extremely good stuff - chocolate and great sex and weddings and hilarious jokes - fills a minute portion of an adult lifespan. The rest of life is the paddling: work, paying bills, flossing, getting sick, dying.”
Jaimal Yogis, Saltwater Buddha
We have designed a five-part, online surf series course for beginner and intermediate-level surfers. This course has been designed to help you improve your surf skills from anywhere in the world, as well as get a better understanding for both the fundamentals and spirit of surfing.

Learn about why we love surfing so much, surfboards, and equipment, as well as prep your upper body for surfing.
October 10, 2020: Smile while you paddle
Hear from Travis about lessons he's learned from surfing and how waves form, as well as strengthening your core for surfing.
October 17, 2020: The next wave
How can we be responsible surfers? Travis will take you on a journey to answer that question, practice balance techniques for surfing, and do a paddle and pop-up tutorial.
October 24, 2020: Blue Mind
Learn about trim and carve turns via a surf tutorial and strengthen your arms and shoulders for surfing. After which, we will dive deep into Blue Mind.

Begin with a yoga flow video and enjoy a conversation about "Flow State" while watching a surf video of surfer Torryn Martyn.
Why take this course
We designed this course to give both landlocked and future surfers the ability to build their skillset, strength, and agility (physically and mentally) in a moment when they may not be able to get to the coast. There are many lessons to be learned from surfing that can apply to so many other aspects of life!
WHAT TO EXPECT
This 5-session course has three major components, that will be present in every class. The first is "deep dives" which are more interactive, even philosophical, discussions. The second is "agility" — stretches and movements designed for surfers. The third, "mastery", imparts information and skills regarding all things surf.
