Interview: NBC News mindfulness and calm under pressure

While I was in New York City for the City Paddle Festival, I connected with the team at NBC News. Thank you for the great interview and article.

I was happy to share my strategies to balance my optimism with a grounded, calm head space. That plays a major role in both my success during competition, and for anyone in life or business. In my book released in November 2017, “Beneath the Surface,” I share the life practices that I credit for the positive attitude and mental strength that has gotten me through my toughest obstacles.

As Brianna Steinhilber writes, “The good news? Schweitzer says that whether you’re surfing a huge wave in Hawaii or headed to an important business meeting, his strategies for mentally preparing before a high-stakes competition ring true. Here are some of his go-to practices for remaining calm under pressure, using the ocean as therapy and how we can all benefit from the Hawaiian practice of Ho'oponopono.”

On the Road: Clinics and Technique opportunities

While I am on the road across Hawaii, throughout the mainland and Canada and many stops around the globe I give as many clinics as possible. By staying in touch with me through my newsletter, Instagram and Twitter feed you can see where I will be.

If you want to start from the beginning with standup paddling, surfing, or foiling, there is always an opportunity for that.

On the expert side, I am happy to match your needs with my expertise and teaching style. You can always contact me for my schedule or to answer your questions.
