Sal Howe

KINESIOLOGIST, SURF COACH & APNEA INSTRUCTOR

My aim is to empower women to develop these skills in a supportive, fun environment to build ocean confidence, which can then be transferred to everyday life.  Having the understanding of what to do in an intense situation can have powerful effects on how you feel. Controlling the breath not only allows you to change your states quickly, but can also enable you to navigate through unpredictable scenarios”.  – Sally Howe

After 16 years of surfing and more recently coaching women to surf, Sally understands how amazing, but unpredictable the ocean can be at times. Developing the knowledge and confidence to make good decisions can require a steady and calm head, which stems from using correct breathing techniques. Sally’s aim is to empower women to develop these skills in a supportive, fun environment to build ocean confidence, which can then be transferred to everyday life.  Having the understanding of what to do in an intense situation can have powerful effects on how you feel. Controlling the breath not only allows you to change your states quickly, but can also enable you to navigate through unpredictable scenarios.

Sally will be running the ‘Ocean Confidence & Breathe’ Workshop:

What happens to the mind and body when experiencing intense ocean situations?

This workshop brings surfing insights to provide a deeper understanding of what the human body and mind goes through when stressed, particularly when underwater in tumbles and hold downs.   You’ll learn skills to deal with these situations, by developing  processes for managing stress, self-awareness, self-control and good decision making. These skills can be applied not only in the water, but across all facets of life, benefiting health and wellness.

Suitable for women of all ages who surf and want to start experiencing bigger waves, but may not have the confidence or knowledge to try.
