B.E.T Explained

WHETHER YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE EDGE AS AN ELITE SURFER, BIG WAVE RIDER OR YOU ARE A 'WEEKEND WARRIOR', BET - BREATH ENHANCEMENT TRAINING IS ESSENTIALLY A PROGRAM TO HELP YOU GAIN CONFIDENCE IN ‘CHALLENGING’ SURF CONDITIONS. BET WILL HELP TAKE YOUR PHYSICAL & PSYCHOLOGICAL ABILITIES TO A NEW LEVEL, PROVIDING YOU WITH THE CONFIDENCE & COMPOSURE TO PROGRESS YOUR SURFING.

Whether your are a competitive athlete, you work in a high pressure environment or you want to surf bigger waves, your performance will dramatically improve with better breathing practices as your heart beat, nervous system and the emotional centres of your brain all respond favourably.  BET provides the knowledge and the techniques proven to give you an edge over the challenges you expose yourself to. 

The concept of ‘challenge’ is unique to you, it might mean 3ft, 8ft or 15ft wave faces, it doesn’t matter, this training is suitable for all levels. If your challenge is physical & you get rattled paddling out or wiping out, we go through specific pool drills which mimic the surf & will train your body to be much more competent. If your greatest challenge is the mental anxiety that you experience during hold downs or under a high heart rate, then we have the knowledge & training techniques to make you more comfortable, confident & able to deal with that. Nam has also trained numerous surfers on the World Championship Tour(he is the strength & conditioning coach for 3 X World Champ Mick Fanning), so if your performance suffers under competitive pressures we have that covered too!

This course is PACKED WITH POWERFUL TOOLS, TIPS & TECHNIQUES THAT you can apply immediately.   

Breath Enhancement Training covers:

  • Preparation for challenging paddle outs, wipe outs and hold downs. Effective ways to warm up & prepare yourself on the beach or in the boat, before paddling out.
  • Improving Lung Capacity & Breathing Muscle strength. We can lose an alarming % of our lung capacity each decade through incorrect breathing practice and lack of correct education.
  • Extending your breath hold safely. Please note this is not a free-dive specific training course & you will not be attempting maximum static breath holds. This is surf specific training and our drills recognise that you are under a higher heart rate when the breath is compromised. We ensure that you will gain greater confidence in bigger surf.
  • Improving physical & mental tolerance to Carbon Dioxide which builds up in a breath hold situation causing anxiety & lack of focus. This component of the training involves activities with short breath retention on a full lung.
  • Using oxygen more efficiently, enhancing performance whilst increasing confidence and relaxation during hold downs, bigger surf etc. This component of the training involves activities with short empty lung holds.
  • Recovery Breathing Techniques allowing deep tissue oxygenation & the calming of your nervous system after challenging situations. Also a great technique to improve focus.
  • Biofeedback on your Heart Rate Variability (HRV) & Nervous System. Participants are educated with a live demonstration of the analysis of HRV - Heart Rate Variability.  This is a non-invasive measure that reflects heart-brain interaction and coherence between systems in the body. You will see ‘live on the screen’ how B.E.T creates ideal heart rhythms for greater control of the nervous system, faster recovery and better performance mentally & physically when under load.
