Surf-based power-skills learning and community support for stuck managers to find clarity, purpose, and confidence to create their dream life

Designed for impact-focused professionals and aspiring entrepreneurs,

Overcome the hidden mindset blocks that keep you stuck

It’s not like you don’t have what it takes. You have achieved a certain level of success that looks good on paper. However, you are now aiming for a greater objective: to live a life driven by your passions on your own conditions. The question is, how do you get started?

You know you have tremendous value to share with the world but you’re feeling stuck because:

You’re overwhelmed by uncertainty and paralyzed because you want to take the “right” next step.

You are scared that taking the leap would mean failure, rejection, and losing everything you’ve worked so hard to build.

You are fed up with waiting while people with less experience, money, and talent seem to be making big moves.

If your answers are yes to most, if not all, of those points, then the MindSurf Experience is Exactly what you need.

Take the biggest adventure of all of them

Surfing with Sartre Book

“What the surfer knows, in knowing how to ride a wave, bears on questions for the ages — about freedom, control, happiness, society, our relation to nature, the value of work, and the very meaning of life.”

Aaron James
Harvard Professor of Philosophy

Surfing Timothy Leary American psychologist

“Surfers are truly advanced people who are evolutionary for their general appreciation of waves and change. Many surfers become mystics. The surfing act is almost Taoist poetry. Almost Einsteinan.

Meet Your Coach

Hi, I am Coach Dris 👋

I have made it my mission to empower ambitious people to become their very best.

I have been a high-level manager, start-up founder, and athlete, and I have learned the hard way what it feels like to be stuck, work hectically, and live aimlessly. I experienced depression, burnout, and anxiety. On my way to recovery, I learned everything about finding meaning and purpose, energy management, and sustained positive change, which I now share with others.

Surfing has been a big part of my journey. When I hit rock bottom, I realized that surfing had already taught me a lot, which helped me recover and get stronger.

I have been surfing for over 20 years. Surfing taught me how to develop a growth mindset, and gain confidence and appreciation for what life offers. I learned grit and resilience. I learned to step out of my comfort zone, cultivate courage and stay calm under pressure when chaos is all over, and trust me; the ocean can be pretty mad! Surfing taught me how to seize the opportunity when it presents itself and leverage it. Surfing is all about timing, being in the right place, and the right moment to take off and ride.

I realized that riding ocean waves is similar to riding life waves.

I now combine what I learned from surfing and traditional coaching techniques to empower ambitious people to find meaning in their life. My coaching approach is multidisciplinary. I am methodical and practical. I only use strategies and tools that are backed up by science.

I have supported CEOs, Professional Athletes, Executives, Teams, and Entrepreneurs worldwide to reach their full potential and create more impact in their world.

My uniqueness is combining what I learned from surfing with coaching techniques. I can see systems and processes in a way that people would appreciate and which can show them possibilities where they can’t.
