RESULTS - Below Bude surfer Barnaby Cox talks about his results from a recent national surfing contest. Barnaby has been working really hard in developing his technical skills and mindset this year and it shows in the results he is getting!
"Coming in to this event I was really hungry for a win yet unsatisfied with my level of surfing before the contest. That all changed as soon as I put my contest jersey on. I focused on my pre-heat ritual and reminded myself of what I wanted to achieve at this event and WHY.
I won 8 heats in a row in the under 16s and under 18s (at age 15)!!! In the under 18's I made it to the semi-finals and in the under 16s I came second in the final.
I have learnt a lot from this experience and I want to do even better in future competitions"
....and I am sure he will! Check back in to see more of Barnaby's results.
Later in the year we will be breaking down the sorts of psychological interventions that have assisted Barnaby in his progress and results this year.
