Being at a competition is always a long day. The supergirl pro down in Oceanside California is a 3 days event that is the biggest of the year with 107 girls entered. The waves are usually tiny, and it's a shit fight to get through the first 2 to 3 rounds.
I had some unfortunate events! My heat started off with my first wave into the pier (at least i committed to the wave), my body went one way, and the board went the other. Half my board is in the middle of the pier and the other still attached. If your gonna snap a board, I think I did it perfectly. Previously that day, I was not going to take a back up board, the waves are 2ft, very weak, and are grovel sloshes, so not the type of wave to snap a board! But lucky enough I was given a lecture on why I should take one just in case, lucky I did! Unfortunately my back up board was not for those waves, lesson learnt, and I didn't progress. I dwelled on it for about 10 and chose to put it behind, learn from it and move on.
This is my first year competing, and I have only ever made a heat here and there. The transition from free surfing to competing is a different story. But the pressure builds causing all connections to the mind to the body to be cut and you surf like a kook. I find a routine is best and eating well is an utmost important key to feeling good.
Not just at a comp or just leading up to it, I eat clean and alway consider my diet in my everyday routine. I 100% agree that protein is a vital source for my body to be able to function and plenty of water!
Breakfast: omelet with veggies and avocado, maybe even some hummus.
Lunch: chicken and salad
Dinner: pork and veggies
I don't usually indulge in the snacks provided as usual at filled with flavours, colours, fake protein, evergy shots, and drinks. They do sometimes provide a good lunch and free fruit bowls!
Thanks to the #supergirlpro, and the unlimited acai bowls ! X T.
