How a Waterman's Mindset Positively Impacts Your Time in the Water
Posted on Sep 5th, 2019
“Waterman” is a term that gets thrown around a lot. It’s not a rank or a title but it is a lifestyle beyond riding waves. It’s an identity for water sports addicts, people who push their limits beyond the average — athletes who are open-minded, courageous and thrive in the ocean.
But how does one become so connected to this massive and vital element of nature — the ocean?
The ocean is a part of who we are. We emerged from the water and evolved inland, and somewhere along the line, we forgot about our origins. Some of us still have a strong link to it, but some have lost that connection.
For me, the ocean is a source of energy and power. It calms my mind and I recharge near it. When I’m in the water, I experience joy and contentment. I share this because I know there are many people who would describe their connection to the sea in the very same way. And research seems to support this idea.
