So how does it work, a NOMB Surfcoaching Trip? Well, it´s really easy to be honest. Sign up for one and book your travel ticket to be at the meeting point in time. Everything else will be organized for you.

All YOU need to do on a NOMB Surftrip is surf, surf, surf, and have a hell of a time!

A NOMB Surfday starts with a power breakfast during which the group is getting briefed on the conditions and program of the day. During the day we surf, learn about surfing and the ocean, analyse your surfing through video&photo analysis, surf a little bit more and then finish the day with a freshly cooked delicious dinner. A glass of local wine or an icecold beer, watching some stars, going asleep.

Only to wake up and do it all over again!..

 

You see, there´s a lot of surfing involved. Isn´t that great?? We here at NOMB Surf are suuuper excited to start our first ever 14 days intensive surfcamp! If that´s no reason to celebrate!! That´s why we throw in a NOMB Surf goodie bag for every surfer that joins us on this fantastic surftrip to northern Spain.

Hooked on the idea of surfing heaps for a couple of weeks?? Good news is that there are still a few surfspaces available. Bad news is that they book up really quickly. So get in touch asap and secure your surfspace.

More info about ´Groove On Galicia´ can be found here! We are counting the days!

Surffitness – a fancy word but how does it work?

Surffitness – a fancy word but how does it work?

Being a landlocked surfer sucks! No waking up to the sound of the ocean. No sunset surf session in bright colors. No finding of your balance by staring at the horizon. But hey, the next surfholiday is not too far away.

So you have booked your tickets, tried on your wetsuit at home (just to make sure it still fits) and just for fun tried a few take-offs to get into the mood. And once in a sudden you realize that your fitness & strength levels are round about zero. So you start thinking about the muscles pain from your last surftrip, and the missing endurance to spend more than 1 1/2hrs per day out in the ocean. Surffitness, that´s the key you think. You run into your local gym and they offer Drysurf classes and all that fancy stuff. You sign yourself into some quite expensive courses, to only realize that the whole so called surffitness hasn´t got much to do with surfing at all. So you start checking the internet. And you find looooooads of information. But where to start??

Let us help you with a little guide through surffitness. Look at NOMB Surf, N-ature O-cean M-mind B-body. The 4 pillars that make you live and surf in balance and to your full potential. Nature and ocean are out of your reach while being landlocked, but your body and mind are there, 24/7. And are ready to be prepared?

Our mind is often overlooked. Personal issues and stress at work are part of everyone´s life. But are you actually doing anything to change those negative energies around you? You don´t like your job? Well, change it. You are not happy in your relationship? Well, change it. It´s easy said but it´s also easy done. Isn´t life about being happy? Once you try to get to the roots of your troubled mind, you might find out that solutions for everything are out there, and that noone apart from you can make decisions for you. How do they say? Free your mind, and the rest will follow 😉

Preparing your body is a little bit more tricky. But not impossible. Allow yourself at least 12 weeks to get back into shape. So where to start? Let´s devide your body preparation into three main parts:

 1. Aerobic training (swimming and running)

2. Basic mobility & flexibility exercises

3. Basic strength (core & plyometric) workouts

Now that you know what you are looking for the information available online is a lot more clearer. Swimming and running programs are openly available. Or sign into a couple of classes with a professional swimming or running instructor and get some advice.

Basic mobility and flexibility exercises can be found for free on Youtube and you can make them part of your watching TV routine.

To improve your strength, especially in the core area, scan the internet for surfstrength exercises. Surfstrengthcoach Cris Mills offers some really great exercises. You can either buy his complete training program or take advantage of his Youtube channel. Plyometric doesn´t mean much to you? It basically means you want your muscles to exert maximum power in very short intervals of time, a take-off for example. Best way to prepare your take-offs? A take-off straight out of a push-up. Check out plyometric expert Dani showing you how to do it:

Our NOMB Surftrips are designed for your to boost your surfing. The most efficient surfcoaching trips we offer are our intensive surfcamps and adventure surftrips. Included in the trippackage of those two is a 3 months fitness preparation programm. That´s right! Not only do we coach and guide you during the trip, we also give you a structured fitnessplan to prepare. And guess what? Right, after the trip you will receive your own detailed feedback about the achievements during the trip, plus extra excercises to improve back home.

Sounds good to you?? Then do not hesitate but sign in for our next surftip ´Groove On Galicia´, a 14 days intensive surfcamp to the Northwest coast of Spain.

Good luck with your surffitness, sea you in the water soon.

Hoi NOMB Surfers!

 

People call me Lovely Lindis and I am- extremely motivated – to be part oft he NOMB ´Groove on Galicia´project! YEEEYYY!

When head surfcoach Angie is calling for a cook, then I jump into the scene „rrrooooaaaarrrr“.

Of course I am a passionate surfer and I can perfectly imagine what a hungry dude is wishing for after a day packed with waves. Grilled fresh fish, juicy beef burgers, Swiss mountain pasta, Risotto, smoothies, self-made cereal bars and other healthy stuff is all part of my performance.

Before I was responsible for food & beverage in a large surf camp and beside my cooking skills I am always open for a chat. My secret in the kitchen: make everything with love.

See you soon!

Your Lovely Lindis

#Tripnotes Galicia 2017: La Bomba…

#Tripnotes Galicia 2017: La Bomba…

… that´s just the right word for our NOMB Surfcoaching trip to Galicia.

 

´La bomba´ is spanish for ´the bomb´, and often used not only for great moments and an extraordinary person but also for the biggest wave of the day rising up on the horizon. And yeah, the NOMB Surfers had some great waves on a daily basis, everything from small & mellow to big & powerful.

Go big or go home

 

´La bomba´ were also the improvements. Daily intensive surfcoaching made every single of one of the NOMB Surfers immensly improve their surfing skills. At the beginning of the trip surfcoach Angie sat down with each participant to get an idea about the level, challenges and problems. Reachable goals were set for the week (apart from surfing great waves of course): NOMB Surftrips are made for not only surf but to improve your surfing at the same time. Through video and photoanalysis surfcoach Angie identified the areas of improvement and gave concret feedback and tips on how to improve quickly. The results were incredible, exhaused but happy smiles were leaving the water after every session in the (not so cold) galician waters.

The NOMB Surfers

 

After so much surfing the batteries needed to be recharged. Chef Julez made sure that noone went to bed with an empty stomach. The focus of her cooking was on showing the NOMB Surfers how tasty healthy energy food can be, and that it doesn´t have to be meatbased all the time. Trying to use local produce Julez and surfcoach Angie went around the local markets, and picked up a tip or two from some old ladies. Julez treated the surfers to grilled fish and stuffed veggies, curry with gambas and quinoa, local empanadas y tortillas, and not to mention the power breakfasts! Thanks for doing such an amazing job Julez, we hope to have you on board on more NOMB trips. PS: your energy balls are la bomba, too!

Fish markets

 

We here at NOMB Surf are always trying to find the best conditions for our surfers. Even if that means splitting the group if we have different surflevels. At the beginning of the week the NOMB crew took a trip up north to a truly magical beach (the end of the world?). The local surfguides, Ramon & Josh & Albino from Ocean Squad Surf Academy were never tired of bringing the NOMB surfers to the beach with the best conditions. Gracias chicos! Luckily the local beach only a few minutes drive away produced beautiful waves nearly every day. Varying in size but nearly always glassy made two surf sessions possible on most of the days. Have a look at it, isn´t it beautiful???

Local beach

 

The days were packed with surfing, yoga, theory, more surfing, chilling, supermarket trips, eating and Estrella Galicias.. Maybe that´s why the week passed soooo quickly.  Too soon the first of the NOMB Surfers had to go back to Santiago de Compostella. Not without the rest of the group giving him a proper farewell of course. Galicia is famous for the ´Camino de Santiago´, a pilgrimage to the shrine of apostel St. James the great in the cathedral in Santiago. There are several pilgrim ways which all end here. However, there is a saying that your own ´Camino´ starts at your own doorstep. All NOMB Surfers followed their own ways to all end up surfing the amazing galician waves! Woohoo!

Good bye NOMB Surfers

 

It was hard to leave Galicia and its beauty, that hard that some of the NOMB Surfers stayed an extra view days. New friendships were made, memories were created, wave after wave was surfed, limites where reached and exceded!

Well done NOMB Surfers in Galicia, see you soon in the ocean somewhere!!
