    Ep.38 | Surf Shields & the sound of the 'Shit Wave' Police.

    Ep.38 | Surf Shields & the sound of the 'Shit Wave' Police.

    We are talking anticipation and expectation,  Hemmingway, breath work, and body hacks. There is the pain of dropping the ‘surf shield’, getting comfortable with uncomfortable, ego challenges, training our weaknesses and starting with the hard stuff first.
    It’s been a world of Cold water surfing for us and we are chatting just how incredible surfing must be for humans to jump through the ring of ice for just one turn, or one wave ridden to its fullest.  We uncover the ‘Shit Wave Police’ telling anyone who will listen whether its ‘good’ enough to get in and asking whether it is the conditions that don’t live up to their expectations or whether there simply hasn’t been enough training put in. There is the regular Mind, Body, Stoke segment, surf rental 'ego-bubble-bursters', foils, kook slams, wipe outs and more all rolled up into episode 38 of the Mindful Surfer Podcast.
    Here is to all the cold water surfers around the world!

    Ep.37 | Passion & Purpose

    Ep.37 | Passion & Purpose

    The ‘surfers’ hair debate rattles on and Will is exploring his surf pube fascination and his ‘Charlton knots’.  There is laughter, depth,  dopamine hits, meditation, secret spots, endless swell and some monster waves.
    We work through Challenging yourself, grit, gratitude,  building flow stacks, as well as blockers to wave chasing.
    We also talk scarcity versus abundance and building gratitude for what we do have. Setting ourselves free from societal or self-imposed walls that hold us all back and giving everyone space to try out their authentic selves.
    Wherever you surf, that’s where you are. Thanks to all you Mindful Surfers and the growing community for your support, messages and good vibes!

    Ep.36 | Get wet and don't get upset.

    A post session recording, where we are chatting, Board apologists, peacocking (especially us fellas) and riding boards for image rather than function or feel.
    Liam is talking books and the depth that long form exploration allows you to access.  There is more on cold water therapy, vagus nerve soothers, recent mind, body and stoke hacks and even a spot on hair care :)  Pub bores, big waves, books, bums and more.  All wrapped into the latest episode of the Mindful Surfer podcast.
    Surf how you want gang on whatever you want. Go get wet and don’t get upset 🤘🏼🤙🏼

    Ep.35 | Becoming Incredible

    Ep.35 | Becoming Incredible

    Becoming Incredible.
    We are talking tricky crowds, in water triggers, calling out bad behaviour, on shore howlers and crisp clean days.
    Are locals more ‘deserving’ of waves? who has a ‘run-in’ with a SUP rider and what happened next?
    There is the Mindful Surfer mediation segment, celebrating sharing waves with good folks, getting into flow and rhythm in positive line ups, which all turns up the stoke machine to 11. We even bump into very mindful surfer Adz from @the_grumpy_surfer_podcast at the local for banging waves and good vibes.
    Big shout out to Adam Amin for his recent bombs at Jaws.  Absolutely inspiring.  As well as Peter Mel who at 52 is proof that the best wave of your life is yet to come.
    We chat high energy, dick heads, short-cuts, interrupted flow states and more all in Episode 35 of The Mindful Surfer podcast. Links in the bio and all platforms and smart speakers now.

    Ep. 34 | Eating Elephants

    Ep. 34 | Eating Elephants

    Will and Liam, chat ‘Millionaire surfing’, overtraining, getting comfortable with boredom and eating elephants.
    What can you do when you can’t surf?  Is there such a thing as overtraining and can Mindfulness help us through harder more lockdowned times?.
    Will and Liam talk taking the small steps every day to get the improvements that will lead you to be ready. For life and for surf.
    The Mindful Surfer segment focuses on breathwork and meditation and the boys mull the continual search for surfboard testing videos from manufacturers, where real surfers at different levels ride the boards you might buy!  With plaudits to @sbsboards for putting out more authentic and relatable footage. Don’t just buy a board based on how Rob Machado or Felipe Toledo surf it!
    All this and more in episode 34 of the Mindful Surfer Podcast.

You will love this

Good lads speaking some great content. Very relatable and it’s good to have two people that understand how important surfing is and the huge benefits to it, talking about mindset and positivity.
All the best to Will and Liam!

Relaxed and thoughtful

As a landlocked and slightly bummed out (thanks covid restrictions) surfer I found these guys and boy have they cheered me up. A very nice and relaxed mix of mindfulness, surfing, life and laughs. Even time I listen I feel like I’m sat in the car with them on the way to surf.

Started living and started surfing in Ventura California at C Street beach, 2 years ago, and this podcast is great to listen to as you start on the surf journey. Great for beginners and advanced surfers. Makes you really appreciate just hanging out in the ocean. I’ve never taken it for granted but it’s nice to share the positivity of this great sport.
