“Writing The Surfer’s Mind was a pure joy. I joined my passion for surfing and psychology. Completely absorbed in the nature, culture, psychology and spirituality of free surfing, competitive surfing, big wave riding and living the surfing life. Applied both experimental and experiential approaches to my research, knowledge and skill development. Gathered timeless words of wisdom from many of the world’s best surfers. Then lovingly wrote my book…
Along with sharing the inner secrets of high performance surfing, I also share ways to explore and cultivate deeper human values, such as gratitude, appreciation, acceptance, kindness, humility, relationships and unconditional love, which serve to illuminate the heart. I believe this is the reason The Surfer’s Mind has resonated so beautifully through and beyond the world of surfing…”
