Episode 010 - Surf Strong fit coach adventure

This episode is from a live stream where I talked about my path and journey as a coach and trainer. How injuries and early athletic experiences influenced me and steered me toward coaching. How the opportunity to connect with our surf community, give back, and coach surfers to stay strong and stoked in the water till their last breath is an absolute joy.

This Surf Strong Show is a fun extension of that mission. I'm having a blast with these in depth conversations with true experts in the surf community, who have so much to provide, and are just giving back so much.
