Just got back from 5 months of travel, covering a fair bit of ground from Portugal for a wedding shoot, then onto Italy, Scotland, Indian Himalayas & Delhi, Nicobar & Andamans then onto Vietnam before flying back to Bali earlier this week.
Safe to say I got my fix of constant travel and have become quite good at living out of a suitcase. I do however realise how lucky I am to spend so much quality time with my significant other @kaioshk 👫
One thing I realise from travelling so much is that I miss a routine, without a routine I get lazy, sleep in and therefore not productive. Even if it’s just staying in one place for a month it definitely helps me a lot. So I’m stoked to be back in Bali for some time, work on my photography, go to the gym, eat healthy, play football and ultimately work towards my goals in a more productive manner.....
Oh but wait.. I have 3 weeks in Simeulue first 😂 3 weeks of routine coming up! Shoot, Eat, Edit, Sleep & repeat!

Already a slight rise from yesterday with the odd set starting to show signs of a further increase. Fun waves from Berawa to Pererenan this morning...

What is fascia? 🙋
Everything in your body is connected 〰️ Your muscles, your organs, your bones are all held together by this sheath of connective tissue - your fascia!
So it stands to reason that we should probably pay this important structure in our body some attention, right? Stretching the muscles won’t really be effective if the fascia that sits on top of it is tight and restrictive ✖️ So how do we stretch it?
➡️Fascia is really tricky, because it encases and connects every muscle in our body, so a one dimensional stretch won’t really cut it....
➡️This is where rolling can come in handy. Using a trigger point ball (we love @blackroll_australia) or a foam roller can help free up your fascia, particularly if you move your body whilst you roll. (See our previous posts on fascial release for some examples)
➡️Myofascial release is another great way to get things moving more freely. Find a health professional who knows how to work your soft tissues to release your muscles as well as your fascia! (Hint: there’s a local Physio insta you’re probably perusing right this second who offers this service! 😉)
➡️Cupping: go old school and try some eastern therapies - cupping works by lifting the tissues rather than compressing them to help get things moving. And no - we’re not talking about having a cup of wine 😂🍷 So there is a BASIC intro to fascia, if you want more info, check out our blog, or come in for a session with Cara-Lee and she will chat your EAR off about it 😝👂🏼 #spreadthestoke#stokephysioblog

Welcome to the Team🚀
@ryancallinan I’ve been testing products from all surf hardware brands for the last few years……But @ocean_earth79 products by far had the best quality. No matter where I was surfing or traveling, I could always trust their products. Stoked to have joined the team!
