‘Donning the Wettie’ is a defining moment for surfers. Its says ‘suit up’, because we are going regardless. Whether intimidating close-out bombs or rock-filled onshore drivel, the close fit of perfect attire makes you always feel surf-ready in your Zurf-Yoga™ practice.
Overview: Shake the Suit, Find the Feet, Stretch the Wettie.
Technical: This asana has three sequences based around one sustained sitting pose. The first is a transition to sitting. The second is an alternate muscle stretch. The third enhances the holding of core and abdominal tensions.
Specific Hints: In moving into the final pose, shift your balance gently from side to side for maximum micro-muscle benefit.
Secret Yogi: In colder climates requiring arctic protections, this asana is known as ‘Snuggling the Budgie’ and involves tantric techniques for generating heat and safe retraction.
