Deakin Alumni Keynote

Thanks to Deakin Alumni for inviting me to deliver the keynote address at your professional development and networking event.

I enjoyed sharing about core elements of Surf Psychology – in particular the mindset and approach of big wave riders – to illuminate the basis for high performance and personal enrichment in all our sporting, business and wider life adventures.

The talk includes a clip of some work I did with Tom Carroll and Ross Clarke-Jones for the Storm Surfer’s documentary, Pipeline poetry from Gerry Lopez and a number of insights from Kelly Slater, Clyde Aikau and other top surfers I have been fortunate to share time with.
