All set up for a static Apnea session 🌊🏄‍♂️

Ever heard of ‘apnea’ and wondered how it connects to surfing?

Apnea, essentially breath-holding, is a core skill in freediving but it’s also incredibly valuable for surfers.

It’s about learning to control your breath, stay calm under pressure, and increase your underwater endurance – crucial for those moments caught under a big wave.

Here are some key benefits of incorporating surf apnea into your surf training:

🏄‍♀️Improved Breath Control: Enhance your ability to hold your breath longer, essential during unexpected hold-downs.

🧘Increased Calmness: Develop mental resilience to stay composed and focused, even in challenging surf conditions.

💪Enhanced Safety: Gain crucial skills that could be lifesaving in critical surfing situations.

🫁Better Overall Fitness: Improve lung capacity and cardiovascular health, boosting your surfing performance.

Whether you’re a surfer, or just an ocean lover these skills are a game-changer in your relationship with the ocean. 🌊🧘‍♂️

We are excited to have Raissa from @eternal_surfer deliver the surf apnea (breath hold) workshop in Rainbow Beach.


We'll be there on the day joining in and hosting Raissa, welcoming her and you to Rainbow Beach and the workshop.


I'm personally super keen for this as I need to learn some techniques for hold downs before my next overseas surf trip, and for confidence in larger waves.

Even just knowing I'm doing the workshop has me pushing the surf a bit harder.  Apparently its a mental game among other things... so I can't wait to learn good techniques and practice them.


See you in the water!!!
