In Proteam surfer Tia Blanco’s life, balance is everything: on a yoga mat and in the kitchen just as much as on a surfboard. In the second episode of the OUT/IN video series, we dive into Tia’s world and discover her connection to the sport and how her mindset shapes her path on the WSL World Championship tour.
With her signature long hair flowing down her back, Tia Blanco feels at home in the ocean. The waves surrounding her are not daunting like they are for most of us landlubbers; they invite her in and when she’s in the water she feels completely, totally free.
In this episode, the second in a four-part series showcasing our Proteam surfers, Tia tells us about the secret ingredients in her success: mindset, with a heap of love. She treats her body like a temple, maintaining a vegan diet, nourishing her mind and soul with regular meditation and yoga, and powering her surfing with raw passion.
“Your mind is so powerful. If you change your thoughts from simply ‘I’m not good enough’ to ‘I can, I am, I will,’ then you can do amazing things,” Tia says.
It’s obvious she loves her life and what she does. For her, surfing is more than a sport; it’s a lifestyle.
Her motto: “Love yourself, love your journey, love the process, and give life everything you’ve got!”
