Surf psychology exercises surfing for the mind is often over looked as a missing factor in any surfer workout or surf training program. As Richard Bennett points out in the video below, how we deal with the mind plays a huge part of the surfing training equation and when we understand the power of psychology we can use this to enhance our exercise for surfing and our actual surfing performance.
He points out that by using psychology exercises for surfing to help to deal with common situations competitive athletes come up against, their surfing performance and lives can improve. We can all benefit however because we all experience similar situations whenever we go surfing or whenever we prepare for a challenging surfer workout. For example, we often have expectations put on us by others and ourselves. This means we cannot control the outcome which leads to more stress rather than optimal performance.
Richard mentions the importance of facing fear, which is something we all do as we develop and push our own limits, both in and out of the water. Mind exercises for surfing may include meditation, visualization, breathing and clearing methods that can be used as a part of any surfer workout or surf training program.
Our Minds often get blurred and kept running from the past or into the future. By adding surfing exercise mind work into our surfing workouts or into our actual surfing when paddling out or preparing to compete or surf we can greatly enhance our performance in the water.
Improve your exercises for surfing by starting to take control of your MIND.
