Boost Confidence And Focus With
Mental Toughness Coaching For Surfing
Do you perform great when you free surf in practice, but tend to fall more in contests? Are you choking in surfing contests? Many surfers have trouble taking their practice performance to the contest because of fear of failure and other mental roadblocks. Do any of these statements relate to you?
- I feel dejected after contests because I can’t perform up to my potential.
- I feel like I lose confidence when I can’t get to the finals or semis.
- I become indecisive and frozen by indecision on the wave.
- I get easily distracted by people watching me surf during a contest.
- I perform tight, cautious, or scared of falling or making mistakes in competition.
“I am a ASP world qualifying professional surfer and after beginning the ‘The Confident Athlete’ I had an almost instant change in attitude about my own surfing ability and my mindset going into competition. One of my biggest issues I discovered in the program was that I would begin to doubt myself once I show up at a competition and see others surfing well. I would instantly think – ‘no way I am that good.’ By using the Confident Athlete strategies, my confidence has done a complete 180 degrees. I won a local pro/am a few weeks back, and just had my best result of the year in one the last big events on the world circuit this last week in Brazil! It is my secret weapon!”*
