Tom Carroll

Tom Carroll is widely known as one of the best surfers of all time. He is a two time world champion, considered the best surfer to ever surf the infamous Pipeline, and continues to push his limits today by travelling the world searching for large swells for the Discovery Channel television series Storm Surfers.

He won the Australian Junior Title in 1978, the Pro Juniors in 1977 and 1980, the 1983 and 1984 ASP World Tour, and the 1987 Pipe Masters. He became the first surfing millionaire after signing a contract with Quiksilver in 1989.

Carroll won the 1984 Surfer Poll and was inducted into the Australian Surfing Hall of Fame in 1990. In 1991, he won Australia’s Surfing Life Peer Poll and 8 years later was inducted into the Huntington Beach Surfing Hall of Fame. He was inducted into the Sport Australia Hall of Fame in 1992.  Tom was voted in at Number 7 on Surfer Magazine’s list of the “Greatest Surfers of All Time”.

 

“I recognise flow as the time where nothing can go wrong….I’m in perfect harmony with the wave and my body movements.”

Tom explains that when in flow, “I could not fall off the board even if I tried…I could move wherever I wanted to…I knew with a sixth sense I was able to push my board and myself to my limit…There was no separation between me, my board and the wave – it was all connected – all one thing…I was finally tuned, emotionally, physically and spiritually…I wasn’t thinking things through…I was just being it…doing it”

“Flow helps anyone to be present in what they are doing…it helps us to become more able to make better decisions…has such a multiple faceted plus to our lives.”

Rebecca Soni

Rebecca Soni is a six-time Olympic medalist. She is a former world record-holder in the 100-meter breaststroke and the 200-meter breaststroke, and is the first woman to swim the 200-meter breaststroke in under 2 minutes 20 seconds.

As a member of the U.S. national team, she currently holds the world record in the 4×100-meter medley relay. Soni has won a total of twenty-two medals in major international competition, fourteen gold, seven silver, and one bronze.

In 2012 Summer Olympics, Soni successfully defended her Olympic title in the 200-meter breaststroke in world record time, becoming the first woman to do so in the event. She was named Swimming World’s World Swimmer of the Year award in 2010 and 2011, and the American Swimmer of the Year award in 2009, 2010 and 2011.

 

“Flow is incredibly important, just knowing what it’s done for my swimming career. I think it’s one of those things that if you don’t take the time to find and train for, you only come across it accidentally every once in a while. It’s not necessarily a necessity, because it’s not like food and water – you won’t die, if you don’t reach that flow state – but that’s what takes life to the next level, as far as enjoyment as well as performance.”

“Finding flow for anybody can take them to a happier level, or a state where they’re enjoying what they’re doing, which I think can be missing in a lot of people’s lives.”

Ben Wilson

Australian kite surfer Ben Wilson has spent the last six years turning his passion and experience into a world-class company with best friend Dano See. After his 10 years as a team rider for Slingshot and having travelled the globe in search of big swells, Ben understands the value of bridging the gap between the two.

A pioneer of the sport, Ben was one of the first to use a surfboard in harmony with a kite and he continues to drive the sport in new directions. In 2011, Ben broke a world record, riding the largest wave ever kite surfed at Cloudbreak, Fiji. He continues to chase big swell and believes that the largest waves can only be ridden with a kite. For Ben, kitesurfing is the ultimate extension of surfing, providing the opportunity to enjoy even blown out onshore conditions.

He now spends much of his time either on Namotu Island where he first learnt to kite or on the Sunshine Coast with his family. Every year Ben hosts the Ultimate Kite Weeks on Namotu. Ben’s search for perfection never ends.

“For me, flow makes me feel larger than life. It’s sort of an out of body experience when you’re so focused that nothing else around you matters. Getting to that point is the challenge – it’s what you search for.”

“I get inspired by seeing people succeed or do the impossible. To be able to achieve that you really need to get into the right headspace. So having the opportunity to join a team of like-minded people who know the importance of what that takes is incredible. I think it’s something very few people can master or even understand, so to be able to work with people who can give you the tools to get to that point is pretty amazing.”

“I’d like to enhance my own ability to control that space and get into that zone more regularly and develop the ability to transfer that to my kitesurfing students. I think if I could develop a greater ability to achieve that mentally, I’d be a better athlete.”

“I´m totally focused when I drop out of the starting gate. just before I´m crazy nervous, not a nice feeling, but I know that suddenly if I pull out the starting gate, the tension is away… then I´m just focused on my run…. I have no fear – just very concentrated. I don´t think on what to do exactly, I´ve my line totally in my head, so I can trust and just ski without thinking on all the steps and danger. In the end it always feels pretty easy. cause everything went so well. I don´t know why it went so good it just did. the better I´m prepared the better it goes at the competition day.”

“I really need a good preparation…the better my body is in shape the more I can trust it…then I can ski as I want.”

“A few days before the comp I start to memorize the whole venue, looking for the perfect line that fits my style of skiing. The better I know my line, the better and faster I will ski at the competition. So I need many hours for the inspection. I ride my line again and again in my mind … for one or two days before the comp. If I´m doing exactly what I did at my imagination I know I´m on the top of the podium.”

Brendan Wells

Brendan Wells is our first junior flow pro. He grew up in one of the best known areas for whitewater kayaking in North America – the Columbia River Gorge. Here he developed a passion for paddling extreme whitewater, pioneering new runs and exploring the possibilities of free-fall in a kayak. He held the world record for the tallest waterfall run by a junior – 95ft. Abiqua Falls near his home in southern Washington. Most recently Brendan has been exploring rivers around the world and documenting his trips and stories through film. Through his documentaries he hopes to inspire other to get outside, explore the world and find their own flow.

“For me, entering my flow state in my kayak is unlike any other experience life can provide. For me it is an altered state of consciousness where I am more focused and in tune with the passing environment than in any other situation. Things are happening so fast that my mind is not making conscious decisions, like what strokes to take or where my body should be positioned….rather, my body is processing the information and immediately reacting. I think that it takes a long time to be able to completely enter this state. Only after years and years of being in my kayak has my mind and body been able to enter my flow state.”
“In my flow, I have been able to push the boundaries of what is possible in a kayak – from trying new tricks off waterfalls, to free falling nearly 100ft, to running long chaotic rapids, and getting myself out of near-death situations.”
“I think that everyone has a flow that they can enter and can take them to a higher level of consciousness. By entering their flow, people can become more in tune with themselves, others, and the world around them.”
“As I talk with more and more action sports athletes, entering the flow and what it feels like comes up often in conversation. Everyone has a little different experience and perspective, and I’m excited to hear from more action sports athletes, artists and others who’s world revolves around flow.”
