What do you listen to before a session?
Just about anything that makes me feel good. When I feel good, I feel confident and surf better. I try to avoid anything negative as it puts me in a bad mood and tenses me up. Most of the time, these good songs come in the form of some funky club music.
I haven't been out in some time (the water is a little chilly brrr), I start out with my daily meditation "flowdreaming" for a positive flow by Summer McStravick then whatever music feels good, R.E.M. at my most beautiful (should I admit this everyone I know makes a weird face when I say REM?)-Cake short skirt long jacket -maybe some Jack Johnson it reminds me of "thicker than water" which helps me feel cool. I like to keep it happy so the day works out very sweetly! By the way Happy Thanksgiving!
if you're longboarding, beach boys get you in the zone...
bob marley too
im really not a huge rap fan but i do on occasion like to listen to rap with a good beat and cool badass lyrics to get me pumped other than that give me a good rock band with good breakdowns.
Depends on my mood, ands the conditions of the waves. If I know it is going to be small and mushy ( most of the time around me) I listen to more "Surfish" mellow music, like Jack Jhonson, Donivan, Bob Marley, Pepper and so on. If the Waves are pumping I break out the goods. Like Barry Mannilow, and Prince LMAO!!! Toatally just kidding on those 2 LOL. Seriously though , stuff like Deftones, Killswitch Engage, Godsmack, Incubus ( Favorite things, and certain shade of green are serious adrinalin pumps), Pantera, etc.
I listen to the rhythm of the waves
slightly stoopid, sublime, ub40, bad brains. NOFX, or LTJ if you are trying to thrash
i like to listen to bloc party , MIA, or some ghostface kllr..
Bloc Party is definatly a good choice
but i think it depends on the type of surf. Big surf requries louder, heavier music (system of a down, 3 days grace, rob zombie.) Average surf and clean conditions stuff like bloc party, less than jake, blink 182, sum 41
And if it's small, the chill music. Jack Johnson, slighty stoopid, bob marley, beach boys.
i`ll also add some led zeplin into the mix , it gets me all hyped up .
i put campaign 2 in my ps2 an press play, or slightly stoopid - world goes around or some wu-tang clan again, an again, again an again.
all you guys go find a cd by The Cult called "Love" it'll do the trick trust me!!
or try to find Smashing Pumpkins first cd called "Gish"
Hector Lavoe on the way to the beach; then some tourists yelling at their kids in the parkign lot and fianlly the peacfull sound of mother ocean once I paddle out....
l like to listen to Bloc Party too some Interpol , or Machine Head ..
it makes you feel like you rip
i'll tell you what i listen to!! Rodrigo y Gabriella..... acoustic guitar players from new mexico.. they now reside in ireland.
they have some pump to their toons... it's just them two, so when you listen don't think there is a drummer as well. Gabriella plays beats on the guitar while strumming..
it's pretty sick... probably not for a grom.... more for the older crowd....
yeah man i agree, or i have some songs from surf movies that make me pumped like "will you smile for me again" by and you will you know us by the trail of the dead, its the opening song from the bruce movie, only the 1st minute is good though, single frame is good, genesis by justice(from stranger than fiction)..it just reminds me of the movie so i get stoked from that, and MGMT
and you can't forget some biggie smalls
