Surfers have a profound connection to the earth. We immerse ourselves in it’s oceans, we watch the cycle of the winds, tides and seasons. We understand the cyclical nature of the earth and it’s natural phenomenon. It is the physical and mental connection with the earth and the forces of nature which culminate in the act of riding a wave, the physical manifestation of these forces, which makes surfing so special.
There is a concept that is experienced while riding a wave, which is called Flow. Flow is being present. Engaged in the moment. The Now. Everything else disappears, one’s focus is purely centered on the act of riding a wave. This complete engagement in the moment is what gives surfers the elated feeling which is associated with being in a state of Flow.
“When we surf, we connect to the ocean. When we walk barefoot on the earth, we connect to it’s energy. When we meditate we connect to our Heart Mind. When we move with consciousness we connect to our body. When we learn this…and when we master this….then we have FREEDOM.”
