The Surfer’s Mind: The complete, practical guide to Surf Psychology
By Rich Bennett – Surf Psychologist 

“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 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…”

Based on over three years of performance psychology research, personal consultation and in depth interviews with many of the world’s best surfers, The Surfer’s Mind is the complete, practical guide to tune your mind and illuminate your heart for best performance and deep enrichment in surfing and in life.

The book presents simple, practical strategies to think, feel and surf to full potential, opportunities for personal development through living the surfing life plus words of inspiration and advice from more than 70 of the world’s top surfers, including…

Kelly Slater, Andy Irons, Mick Fanning, Joel Parkinson, CJ Hobgood, Taj Burrow, Tom Carroll, Mark Occhilupo, Sunny Garcia, Layne Beachley, Lisa Anderson, Sofia Mulanovich, Keala Kennelly, Shane Dorian, Ross Clarke-Jones, Dave Rastovich, Simon Anderson and Clyde Aikau
