If you’re anything like me and you need a constant supply of podcasts for lunchtime walks and long drives to the beach, then here’s five surfing related ones to add to your queue…
1. Surf Simply
Put together by the Surf Simply coaching resort, this podcast is an interesting and often entertaining mix of surfing tips, surf news and opinions. Sometimes they go way off topic, but it’s worth hanging in there for the excellent surfing tips!
Check out: Episode 45 – Systems vs goals.
2. Surf Mastery
This podcast, by surf coach and personal trainer Michael Frampton, is designed to help you master every aspect of surfing. There’s some real gold in this podcast, but I find it can be a bit hit and miss – some episodes are really interesting, while others fail to capture my interest. Definitely worth a listen though.
There’s some good summaries in the blog to help you decide which episode to listen to first.

3. Salted spirit
Salted Spirit is a series of conversations with adventurous waterwomen from Stacie Vanags. I’m only one episode in but so far so good and the list of interviewees looks super inspiring.
Check out: I’m looking forward to listening to the episodes with Kassia Meador and underwater photographer Sarah Lee.
If you miss Occy aka Mark Occhilupo’s commentary on the WSL, then check out his podcast where he interviews fellow surfers including John John, Kelly Slater and Mick Fanning.
