When we talk about health, we tend to focus on the anatomical structures, on the functioning of the human body. However, we rarely consider our brain – and what lies inside – as an organ that might (or might not) be fresh and vigorous.

Mind surfing is a non-religious experience. It has nothing to do with spiritual beliefs; it is rather a mental experience that allows surfers to “rehearse” actions and movements that we want to complete and achieve shortly.

“When I’m really tuned in, I can mind-surf. I can watch the waves from the beach and feel the movements of my body, which is kind of useful.” The words are from Kelly Slater, the greatest competitive athlete in the history of surfing, and one of the most successful sportsmen of all time.
