Big Wave Surfer Nic Vaughan on Mental Preparedness

Photo: Bryce Lowe-White | brycelowewhite.com | bryce_lowe_white 

As a big wave surfer, the goal is to push my limits in the largest waves around the globe.  In that never-ending pursuit, I am continually striving to improve every facet of my game.   Important pieces of this puzzle include the physical training, such as strength, balance, speed and flexibility; fine tuning my equipment such as surfboard design and fin selection; and in the event of a worst case scenario, ensuring I know proper safety protocol and logistics.  One facet of preparation often overlooked is the mental acumen.  For any athlete, training not only the physical body but also the mind can have a substantial impact on performance.  Creating a mental fortress has allowed me to approach my big wave surfing sessions with confidence as well as has helped me substantially in moments of turmoil, whether that be a bad wipeout, an overwhelm of anger and frustration, or the ability to consciously reduce nerves when it’s all on the line.
