STRESS MANAGEMENT

Incessant changes in the ocean make surfing a discipline which teaches how to adapt to the present moment (the surfer turns himself around the waves, he doesn’t attack them head-on). The adrenalin and euphoria of sliding, as action motors, changes urgent situations into postive stress management.

It was with the idea of boosting his physical capacities and to maintain good health that he continued his training, while at the same time respecting the martial art aspect.

Tai chi chuan is not a keep-fit form of gymnastics for older people. Neither is it an esotheric discipline, nor a type of yoga or meditation.
Taichi is definitely part of Chinese energetic arts and constitutes, by this title, a health discipline. But is also is part of the kungfu family. More precisely, internal kungfu which calls for avoidance techniques rather than brute force.
For this reason, tai chi chuan is practised in China from a very young age and Ki Surf School wishes to promote these virtues of taichi in the psychomotor development of the child and young adult.

MOREOVER KI SURF SCHOOL MAKES IT
CLEAR THAT THERE IS A CLOSE RELATIONSHIP
BETWEEN SURFING AND TAI CHI CHUAN

THE SCHOOL
SURF AND TAICHI

THE SCHOOL : SURF AND TAICHI

FIRST OF ALL, WHY KI ?
This word, which comes to us from Asia, is synonymous with energy :

The energy which is present in martial arts and disciplines connected with energetic well-being but also the energy that’s contained in a wave as with that which animates the surfer confronted with the power of the ocean, simple energy that helps us to get up in the morning and gets us moving.

The Polynesian people call this energy the « MANA » ; it is present in nature and transmits its power to men who respect it. Before, in the Hawaiian lineage, people passed on objects full of mana from generation to generation – , it could have been an arrow, ritual of a tribal priest or a surfboard of an ancestor.

Coherent with his practice of teaching surf and tai chi chuan, Eric offers a host of sporting activities, for individuals or groups (companies, school children, summer camps (for children) :

Surfing courses
Taichi courses
Combination of surfing and taichi courses.

Surf and tai chi chuan are complementary disciplines : working on balance, coordination, release and letting go, posture and suppleness, instant reactivity, stress management transformed into positive energy.

SMALL DEFINITIONS
TAICHI is a form of kung-fu whose movements, performed more often than not slowly, aim at the harmony of the body and mind using a martial art and a health approach.
SURFING is more of an art than a sport as it combines an almost aesthetic research, a symbiose with the waves – a body dance with the ocean !
These definitions speak for themselves, so just come along and try it !!

KI SURF : OPTIMISATION OF SURFING PERFORMANCE

Ki Surf School moreover affirms that there is a narrow relation between surfing and taichi (searching for balance, harmony in space, well-being by practising sport) and offers everybody, irrespective of their age, the discovery of these two complementary disciplines.

KI SURF : TRAINING BY TAICHI

The difficulty with surfing is that the action takes place instantly, in an intuitive way, the wave doesn’t allow the surfer to repeat the same movement to master the technique quickly.
This is where tai chi chuan intervenes : Ki Surf is supported by the sequences and movements coming from taichi. To master the body in space and to have an adapted response to the moment, Ki Surf School has implemented a training programme specific to surfing :

Balancing postures.
Movements activated by the hips
Fluidity in the sequence of movements.
Searching of explosive calmly and with flexibility.
Important work on various supports.
Attention-concentration-observation.

TAICHI ORIGINES, CHEN STYLE

There are different tai chi chuan families et Eric teaches here the Chen style, which is also the oldest. This martial art exist at least since 400 years, in a central village named Chenjiagou, where it is transmitted from generation to generation until today. Taichi belong to the family of Chinese internal martial arts.
Members of this family have perpetuated the Chen style, among them the Grand Master Chen Quanzhong. In the 1940s, his family left Chenjiagou to settle in Xi’an, historic city that was the capital of the first imperial dynasties. Born in 1925, Chen Quanzhong is the oldest grand master of taichi today. He forged his art from masters of the 16th, 17th and 18th generation.
His son and granddaughter, Chen Xi Peng and Chen Xuejiao, are the great masters from whom I have the chance to train me in this ancient martial art that is the boxing of the Chen family.

THE PRACTICE OF TAICHI, CHEN STYLE

Tai chi chuan is a form of kung fu, the movements executed most often slow, aim at the harmony of body and mind in a martial but also health approach.
Taichi is for everyone, not just surfers, since this is a martial art together with a convenient to live well and feel good.
Of course, like other sports, there are different levels of physical engagement : Taichi is practiced into old age, by soft movements which respect the physical integrity. Rather than force, it is best to work on muscle relaxation.
Practiced intensively, the taichi is also tiring than any other sport. Some prefer to work more flexibly but ultimately, the training depends on the physical condition, commitment and expectations of each practitioner. The master fits.
It is far from the image of a maintenance gymnastics for seniors. Learning the taichi, long and subtle, makes you feel good in body and spirit, help you to keep calm without let it go. As the picture of a boxing hiding a fist in a velvet glove !
Then come discover a taichi training of the Chen style!

Indeed, if it happens that one is cut with an oyster, it is even more true that the entrance to the port of Capbreton is a dangerous exercise.

    Prices are reasonable and the cooking of the fish is impeccable. The good places are not so many, so go for it !

    For companies and organizations of events, the casino offers three meeting rooms including an auditorium, and a very bright and directly room overlooking the ocean.

  • COOLIN à LA PLAGE

    Hossegor concentrates most of the nightlife in the golden triangle of the “cities” of Capbreton, Hossegor and Seignosse and Coolin à La Plage is the first bar encountered down to the main beach of Hossegor.

    I admit, this is my favorite. First, because it is open all year, Coolin has not forgotten that people lived here before, during and after the season and they needed the warmth of a pub ! Because yes, Coolin is an authentic Irish pub, run by an Irish and anyone who has set foot in Ireland knows that they are the champions of friendliness ! There is also billiards, darts, Guinness of course, and almost always live music ! Summer in happy hour, always a group or a friend of Coolin to play guitar, bass, violin sometimes.

    And during the world championship of surfing, in late September, Brazilian and Irish groups set fire to the Place des Landais ! Cosmopolitan clientele, good time guaranteed.

    Place des Landais

à DÉCOUVRIR ÉGALEMENT…

Further down the square, there are other bars. And for those who are tired of drinking bad quality beer, Kalimutxo is a beer bar but unfortunately it closes the winter. How many times will we say, do not give up the little people of Hossegor, even in December, we still meet Germans, Welsh and many inhabitants!

The Captain, also in Hossegor, which offers the best beers at a very affordable price, to accompany excellent hamburgers or tapas plates. For a good beer, I must also mention the Heads, L’île du Malt and La Séquerre in Seignosse.

There is in Capbreton a bar that stands against the winter cocooning to offer every Friday of the year, an hour of legend that attracts all residents and seasoned visitors from the region : I want to talk about the Café de la Gare, a place of diversity and conviviality, very authentic.

For a good beer, made in the Landes, and live music on weekends, the associative bar Le Circus, in the district of Deux Pins, in Capbreton, is also worth a visit.

So here are some tips to have a good time in Les Landes !

    Learn surfing with a coach

    As succinctly as possible, I will present the different pedagogical steps of a course of surf. They will allow the surf student to become independent and improve his technical level.

    Of course, everything depends on the quality of the professional who accompanies you, as it is true that the pedagogical contents have changed little in the formations and have remained desperately hollow in the specialized press. A good surf instructor is not necessarily a surf champion, he is someone who has been a beginner like you and who analyzed each stage of his learning, decoded the technique, honed his sense of observation for create a pedagogy of its own and that it will adapt to the level of each.

    Adherence to practice is an important factor of progress, however, the small help of a coach will accelerate the progression, where the surfer would have been blocked months, because of a seemingly innocuous detail.

    I will not give all my little secrets but list the timeline of learning. The physical reinforcement necessary to advanced learning is done naturally, as part of the practice: walk in the sand, fight against the current, get on the board muscular soliciting the body as a whole. A minimum of fitness is nevertheless necessary to take full advantage of his learning. Obviously, the student who already has a sporting and aquatic experience will exceed the first phase of learning faster.

    The steps in surf

    Each landing leads the surfer to rub in an environment that becomes more complex. Catching the foam at the edge, or rowing to get the waves off do not obviously have the same degree of difficulty. Also, burning one of these steps inevitably leads to failure or long stagnation phases. Patience and perseverance are the greatest qualities of the surfer.

    Phase 1 : the basics

    Learning gestures and basic postures of surfing, they allow to slide balanced on its board while having an optimal mobility :

    • The marine environment: knowing how to place oneself in the zone adapted to one’s level, to evolve in a too difficult zone does not make it possible to progress, to use the adapted board.
      The basic rules that guarantee the safety of the practitioner as well as other surfers, we remember the scene of Brice de Nice.
    • The position of equilibrium elongated, the technical keys to find the right position whatever the board used.
    • The foam and the optimal position of the hands flat on the board: it is appalling, for 20 years, to hear repeated training in state patent surf that hands should be placed under the shoulders!
    • The most dynamic recovery possible, according to his abilities: why put the knee when fluidity and flexibility are the key to an effective recovery, and that the person has the ability to do it!
    • Basic techniques to keep the speed, and therefore the glide and balance, to the edge.
    • Taking direction using the gaze and upper body. The front arm, and more precisely his hand, are used by the viewfinder surfer.

    Phase 2: the waves

    • Knowledge of safety rules, priority and user-friendliness.
    • Learning the oar and directional maneuvers off, pass the bar, turn around quickly, etc. : there, too, some surfers and professionals will tell you that you have to tighten your fingers to row is anything. Refer to this article about Prevention Surf on rowing techniques.
    • The take-off at the top of the wave, in small conditions first round, straight ahead then slightly across: reading waves, timing, speed of execution as keys to success.
    • Read the direction of the surf and then succeed in following the waves, preferably in a good way!

    Phase 3: wave speeding

    • Adapt your trajectory to the breaking of the wave to succeed in surfing until the end: coordination of the phases of bending and pushing on the legs (speed), with the upper body whose role is essentially directional.
    • Control of the undulatory speed gain: bending in the descent, pushing on the rail for upward hovering effect, alternating rail / flat of the board. An effective speed gain plays with the height of the wave.
    • Learning the duck, if the volume of the board allows it: it goes without saying that a board that floats a lot will have difficulty sinking under water. There is a double difficulty, technical, but also of analysis of the
      middle. You have to know how quickly the wave or the foam reaches you to be able to trigger the duck at the right moment.

    Phase 4: maneuvers

    The surfer has learned the good positions of the body, the gestures have become reflexes that allow him to react faster in the wave, his experience allows him to read better and anticipate the variations of the environment, he can now develop the fine skills that him will make the figures or better control.

    • To access this stage, the surfer has developed physical and technical abilities that allow him to use a board a little less bulky. But not necessarily because the key of maneuvers is in the speed generated, so it is possible to make a roller with a longboard. Reducing the length of the rail nevertheless makes it possible to shorten the trajectories and to tighten the turns more easily.
    • Let finish the trajectories for a better radius of action in the bottom turn, agree to target the beach in the descent, with the aim of tighter turns, a greater verticality of the angle of attack of
      the board.
    • The rentry at the end of the wave, first introduction to maneuvers at the top of the wave: the acquisition of speed + the ability to steer the board where I want + control of the thrust on the legs at the bottom of the wave = the
      board will lean and pivot on the foam or the lip of the wave.
    • Control of the pivot at the top of the wave: anticipation of the rotation look arm + transfer of support on the front = roller. The difficulty is not to sink the back (too much weight on the back in the pivot phase) and to plant the rail for lack of speed, bad support transfer or rotation too late bust.
    • Knowing how to lighten the board, having prolonged support, will make it possible to learn to change rails, to return to the foam when the wave softens: replacement maneuver that foreshadows the learning of the cut back.
    • The floatter is technically more accessible because the trajectory is less tight than for the roller, this figure requires above all a good reading of the wave and takes again the technical skills necessary for the aforementioned figures. Attention, lack of speed or anticipation to trigger the descent, the board does not twist underfoot, which can result in a blow in the ribs.
    • The key to success for the aerial: speed + ability to aim the point at the top of the wave that will serve as a springboard + lightening-thrust at the top of the wave (need to regroup again at the top of the wave) + aim
      a point a little higher to extend the pivot initiated in the thrust + to transfer the point on the front foot + to be sufficiently relaxed at the bottom of the wave to absorb the shock of the landing and the acceleration of the board
      (often, the surfer falls back).
    • Several key elements for the surfer to succeed in tubing: it is necessary to guess that in such a place, the wave will form a tube, by reading the variations of hollow in the face of the wave; then, he must possess reflex technical movements in order to spontaneously adapt his trajectory, but also his speed, and thus place himself in the pocket at the moment when the lip throws forward. There are techniques for braking so as not to be too early, and others to accelerate in the tube, since a validated tube must cover the surfer and see it come out.
    • There are other maneuvers or variations, such as the tail slide: the surfer transfers all of his weight to the front leg and stretches the back leg to derail the tail of the board. The center of gravity thus comes
      more towards the front of the board, which makes it possible to plan the drifts.

    Surf coaching

    The technique of the activity

    We flew over the classic technical part of the learning stages:

    • On the beach in middle observation and by setting up instructions adapted to the conditions of the moment. In a surf lesson, it is often the ocean that gives the session theme.
    • And in the water, through constant postural rehabilitation work, due to incessant changes in the environment (each wave is different, conditions change with the tide), and repetition of technical gestures.

    A sports coach will also use the contributions of the photo and video so that the surfer, seeing himself, can better understand the corrections and educational objectives.

    Training out of the water

     

    However, except to live in a tropical country, the surfer, even when he is pro, often faces climatic conditions that do not allow him to train.

    Whatever the level of the surfer who wants to learn, it is recommended to practice sports, non-moving media, to repeat technical gestures and explore the full range of his skills
    drive. Each wave being different, it is almost impossible to repeat exactly the same gesture during a given period of time.

    For long periods of winter, during which most surfers go less frequently to the water, a complementary activity will allow you to stay fit but also to work endurance, maintain muscle tone and improve flexibility. Some classics, such as running, swimming, yoga, ball team sports, martial arts, taichi.

    Other less well known but which combine all that a surfer needs to be efficient, is the case of tai chi chuan: the Ki Surf thus allows to work on the relaxation, the amplitude of the movements, the flexibility
    and coordination. The longer the body remains relaxed, the more explosive and explosive will be the action of the muscle.
    This allied with a good use of the breath, a flexible and mobile basin, transfers of fine and progressive support, in situation of return to the water, the surfer will be only more effective.

    The values ​​of surfing

     

    The desire to perfect his surf should not lose sight of some basic aspects of the discipline:

    surfing is a sport of nature, the ocean element and leads the surfer to push back without limits.
    If he chooses the competition, he can also want to surpass himself by measuring himself to his colleagues. However, when training, he must respect other surfers, amateurs, in the presence in the water. Their claim to improve should not be depreciated on the pretext that they do not participate in competitions.

    Training should not become the excuse and excuse to be a con at the water, some coaches now insist on it, which has not always been the case: we do not throw ourselves as a possessed on all the waves, regardless of the others, because a photo tripod is placed on the beach.

    Second, humility in progression, the surfer should not forget that he was a beginner too, and that in certain hostile conditions, the ocean will put it back in its place. Moreover, and this is a universal law of learning, even a surfer, or a coach, very good level will always find material to perfect their technique or their knowledge.

    Changing surf spots, surfing destinations, and gliding supports also makes it possible to progress by multiplying the gliding experiences and leaving the comfort zone. And to understand that it is in openness and sharing that we learn the most, and not by closing the door of his spot or the borders of his country.

  • Kevin (Le 9 April 2014)

    As a beginner – total beginning – I did a few courses with Eric. I must admit that I felt at ease. Not only does Eric uses a method that allows progression but he is also patient and he is always closeby so as to be able to give you pointers. For those who are non-native French speakers, Eric’s linguistic skills allow him to converse in English and German. I do not regret having taken lessons with Eric and might I add: strongly recommend him to anyone desiring to learn to surf. I can say that eventhough I am not a professional surfer I have definitely improved, thanks to Eric.

  • Andrea (Le 23 April 2014)

    Thanks Eric, we had a blast! Hope to be back in France soon!!

  • Thomas (Le 1 August 2016)

    I did a fair bit of advance research in regards to the different surf schools and offers on the web. Eric stood out with his fast and helpful responses. So we booked a two-hour lesson for our two families, three adults and four kids (aged 8 to 11).
    We were all beginners and Eric was very patient with everyone in the group. His excellent English and German was of good use and we can highly recommend him.
    By the end of the lesson, most of us were standing on the boards and we had a fantastic time. We got so addicted we even booked another lessen two days later, again being the perfect surf experience.
    My 8-year-old son got so hooked up, he desperately wants to go to a surf camp next summer and being from Switzerland, this might be a bit of a challenge to organize.
    Well, if we make it to Capbreton once more, Eric will be the first choice for surf lessons.
