Hayden’s a machine. The guy lives and breathes surfing fitness and health. He was up at dawn surfing, following that with morning yoga, clocking a lunchtime massage or surf, then another yoga class in the arvo before paddling out for a sunset surf. He repeated that everyday, sometimes even getting in a night surf! He typically cleaned up two main courses at dinner (yes two) a bunch of cocktails, and often threw in a desert. I quite like his surfing training approach to surfing nutrition … 🙂
He started talking about hiking a volcano in the middle of the night… I said, “D Man … we are in rehab… rehab is for focusing on surfing”, I told him, “If ya gonna do something, do it properly mate – don’t get distracted”. Mt Buta is located nearby, and on the third day in he ignored my surf training advice and set off at two A.M in the morning in pitch black darkness with a torch. He watched the sun rise, clambered down and then paddled out to surf. I opted to stay in bed and see the photos. When I do rehab, I do it properly uno.

I’ve been going to Komune for the last 3 years and they keep adding new upgrades like the skateboard bowl and the lux beach front suites, which I recommend. The resort has a great atmosphere – it’s busy enough yet away from the main tourist hangouts so can maintain an exceptionally chilled vibe.
The beach side pool sits directly overlooking the take off zone right next to the main restaurant on the beach, with some of the fastest and funnest pool staff, helping to get afternoon beers in 30 seconds or less. I’ve always found that nothing fixes surfers depression faster than a good surf or three followed by some chilled alcohol. And funnily enough, your surfing nutrition fitness expert, D Man agrees 🙂 Can’t do surfing rehab without a beer right?
