When people think of surfers the usual old school stereotypes pop up, that we are those chill, beach bum-stoners. Not true! In recent years we have managed to put the majority of these stereotypes to bed and show our true colours as ambitious, hard-working, respectable thrill-seekers, however gang-bangers…surely not! Here at Glassy we love bringing our surfing community together, and the Glassy app is proof of that. It shows us that our community shares the wealth in terms of surf spots with one another and you cannot deny that taking surf sessions around the globe isn’t something that dreams are made of.
“The Mecca of surfing in Europe” and “best wave for pro-surfers” are only a couple of the massive amounts of opinions we have seen being made about the surf from the small town of Mundaka in the Basque Country of Northern Spain. Glassy has its root in Northern Spain therefore this surf spot is pretty important to us but something outrageous is happening there that the world needs to know about, and to us and many others that famous saying about history repeating itself couldn’t be more true.
If you wanna maximise your potential in surfing and in life then let’s get one thing straight taking care of you body isn’t just about hitting the gym a few times a week or surfing/charging some gnarly waves on a few surf sessions each weekend. The bigger picture is proper nutrition is essential in order to surf, therefore we’ve got to think about what we are putting into our bodies as well. Your insides and your outside work together in harmony so if you start neglecting one the other won’t appreciate it at all, and neither will your surf sessions!
So here is a quick look at how you can improve not only your surf but your life in general by following these 3 simple nutrition baby-steps.
We’ve all got that one thing in common, yep we all we love surfing! We all probably have a wetsuit, a couple of surfboards, spend more in gas getting to our surfing spot than going anywhere else, and we definitely would like to drop everything when the waves are pumping and just jump into the water.
But, what do you do when your are not surfing? Do you have any creative hobbies? If you do then we would love it if could share them with us and our Glassy community. Whether you enjoy writing, creating art, photography or just feel like doing a bit of freelance reporting send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and become a Glassy Collaborator in our blog.
This is the case of our friend and Glassy Pro Collaborator Meel, a surfer from the Canary Islands who apart from enjoying getting waves is a great artist. Here is an example of Meel’s art work, check it out!
