Matt Griggs, ex-pro surfer turned holistic, high performance coach across elite business, sport and life, who has joined forces with Taylor Knox, USA pro-surfer to offer a once-in-a-lifetime mind, body and surf retreat in the Maldives this September.
Through his company ‘The Nature of Success’, Matt is offering surf-loving executives the chance to step away from their everyday stresses and build on their skills both on land and out at sea.
The 8-night retreat, held on the 10-cabin luxury 35-m long MV Carpe Diem yacht, includes daily elite surf coaching by Taylor Knox, group Kelee® Meditation sessions and personal and professional life coaching on-on-ones with Matt himself.
Over the course of the trip attendees will be taught the skills needed to ride the waves of the Maldives as well as those they face in their personal and professional lives. This is accomplished through understanding their intrinsic value, fostering an environment of health and fearlessness and implementing key performance tools to achieve success, based on World Champion methods.
Great news is the trip is tax deductible as it is ‘personal development’ so those who purchase the package before 30 June can claim back as part of this financial year.
“As in life, when the surfer is calm and centered is when they access the best of their knowledge and skill. Easy when the ride is smooth and challenges are few, but the ones that can stay calm and centered in intense situations are the true masters in life, as they’ve learned how to master their mind. With the amazing waves of the Maldives as the backdrop, which is well-suited to intermediate level, this trip is really about developing your mind to have less stress and more awareness, with daily Meditation and mental mastery sessions. It just so happens there is a world champion surf coach and one of the best surfers that ever lived to help on the surfing side too!” Matt
“The tipping point in my life was being introduced to Kelee meditation and the impact it could have on my performance in the surf and in my everyday life. I learned the difference between motivation and inspiration, let go of fear of judgement and this freed me up to surf and live better. I can’t wait to introduce Kelee Meditation to a new group of surf-loving individuals and showing them how looking inside can help improve their external performance.” Taylor
