As life becomes more difficult, four months into the lock-down, the more we instinctively start thinking only of 'number one' this weakens the social net that must support us all. By brain training and becoming mindful, we gain the ability to remain open and empathetic towards society, thereby ensuring that we keep adding our strength to the social net. (min 3) This net is built first between close partners , by remaining aware of how we may be slipping into none beneficial speech patterns and reactive behavior to those speech patterns.

Gigs Cilliers multiple  times knee-boarding champion well known global surf commentator, and Owner of the Hermanus surf-shop,  spends time with us on this Surfing Saturday. Fascinating insights information and inspiration about the Oversrtand and its surfing culture.

"Gigs is also a wave hound on the East Coast of South Africa, heading up to JBay whenever there’s something good on the radar.

Is he any good on his knees? Oh yes. How does four Kneeboarding World Titles sound?

Kneeboarding has a diverse and interesting past, with names like Goerge Greenough, Steve Lis and Simon Farrer probably the most renowned in the sports’ history, but Gigs is right up there as one of the most prolific and competitive, and when it comes down to it, he fits in quite comfortably with the ‘waterman’ moniker."
