Surfing is all about having healthy fun in nature with your friends, and getting up on your board and riding the waves with power and confidence. This requires three skills: ocean fitness, wave knowledge, and board-riding skills. Learning to breathe more efficiently, maintaining a calm & clear mind, and holding strength and flexibility postures to increase mobility and endurance, is an ideal out-of-water practice for nailing the ride you’re seeking in the big blue.

Your surf guide & instructor, Dave West, has been living & surfing in Bali for over 20 years, & learned his yoga skills in the Himalayas in the early 90’s. Surfers & yogis both work hard to take care of their bodies & maintain peak health, and recommend practicing yoga on the beach to promote a healthy body & harmonize your spirit with the powerful waves of mother nature.

Ask any surfer and they’ll tell you that the best way to get better at surfing is to…well…surf more. While I’m sure we can all agree on that, there are some things that you can do out of the water to boost performance and support recovery. Yoga and surfing make a killer combo. Just look at all the pro surfers who have already incorporated regular yoga practice into their lifestyle: Kelly Slater, Gerry Lopez, Fergal Smith, Greg Long, Nikki Van Dijk, and many others. But it’s not just the experienced surfers who benefit from it. Beginner surfer should do yoga too. Surfing demands a lot of flexibility and balance, strength and focus. And guess what? That’s exactly what most yoga poses are about. Yoga has been a part of the surfer lifestyle for decades, yet it wasn’t until recent years that the pair finally started getting the recognition it deserves.
