A Few weeks ago, I joined Kim Hartwell, The North Face & Rock and Soul Adventures on a weekend trip to the coast. The Agenda included Rock Climbing led by professional coach Robin O’Leary , Surfing, Trail Running and Yoga in between.

I’d never been surfing before but it’s without a doubt something that i’m adding to my skillset. We went surfing twice during the weekend, thanks to a flexible schedule and the gangs commitment to catching more waves. Note; When the waves touch your feet, four strong front crawl strokes and you’ve caught it.

I’m smiling, mainly because i didn’t fall off the side of a mountain. Chalk is a fundamental material for climbing, responsible for retaining your grip and keeping your hands in one piece.

From a Recovery and stretch perspective Yoga was much needed! Kim picked an incredible setting and i’ve heard a few rumours that it was the first Yoga sessions for a few of the guys too (who haven’t stopped doing it since).
