Fight to Stay Conscious
This week on KookCast, the boys are talking about keeping your eyes on the prize...with your mind. Fighting to stay conscious speaks to the fact that when you go out surfing, it's pretty easy to get lost in bliss. But if we want to continue improving, we need to find a way to keep our mind focused and working towards the goals we have for ourselves.
Lazy Surfer with Nick Peterson
This week, Nick Peterson joins Coach Chris to talk about his app, Lazy Surfer. It's an AI powered surf log that you can use to log all the info from a surf session. You give the session a rating and over time it learns your preferences! Crazy. But even without the AI aspect, this is a great tool just for the sake of collecting info from your sessions and beginning to learn how certain swell and condition characteristics ultimately unfold at your local surf spot.

What is "Trim"?
Coach Chris and Coach Ev are talking all about trim, and it's one of those topics thats tough to discuss because its so subtly pervasive in surfing, but mostly only discussed as it pertains to how you ride a wave. Well your favorite coaches are here to let you know that trim is an ever present concept and the more aware of it you are, the more sensitive of a surfer you can train yourself to be.
This week on KookCast, the boys are talking about a few strategies (and reasons) for creating space in the line-up.

Captain Kook & The Kid: EPIC Session Recap
This week on KookCast we got Coach Ev and Uncle Freestyle recapping an epic session they scored at the peak of the biggest South swell of the season. Tune in to hear how these two scored some epic waves and some heavy beat downs!
Absolutely the best surf podcast around, Coach Chris and Coach Ev are both hilarious and informative. They break things down in a way that makes sense to me and they just seem like guys you would want to drink a beer with. So it makes learning easier, as opposed to a cold, informal, by the numbers approach. I went from barely being able to paddle to routinely firing down the line in about 13 months. I put in ALOT of time in the ocean but I have this podcast and the Surf Continuum member site to thank really. Every time I hit a new wall it seems like a new episode would drop and help me out, wether it changed my understanding of a concept or point blank told me how to fix something. This is an invaluable resource, I listened to some episodes an insane amount of times until the concept stuck in my head. Anyone in their adult gromhood should do the same!
Stay cool - RJ
Recently, I found Kookcast and I cannot stop listening. It is informative, engaging, encouraging and frankly, it’s answering questions about surfing that I didn’t even know I had. Mostly, I appreciate the first principles approach and the clear way the fundamentals of surfing are explained. If you surf, if you kook it, and most of all, if you love the art of learning, this podcast will quickly become your favorite.
A great listen...
In a sport where it’s very individualized and you feel very much by your lonesome self, the knowledge you guys bestow makes us feel like we are not alone. You guys are able to show how everyone goes through the same heartaches and breakthroughs. Kookcast really helps beginners get through this stage much easier and with a smile. Thanks for what you do!
