This was an interesting chat with former professional ‘Big Wave’ surfer and Red Bull Athlete, Mark Mathews. Through his experience as a pro athlete, Mark has become obsessed with the relationship between personal growth, high performance and fulfillment. In this chat we talked about self-management, preparation and the perception (and it's effect) of anxiety in high performance sports and competition. Mark is fascinated by exploring the drivers behind what it really takes to be a high level athlete. Enjoy!
