"Just so you can see what foiling is. You see that the board is above the water. This is in one of my favorite spots. You’re going 25, 30 miles an hour. The wing is all that’s touching the surface and it’s a crazy, intense feeling."

Josh Waitzkin describes how he brings intense learning regimens to foiling. He also gives us just enough information to get started with our own HRV biofeedback program:
"I have experimented with a lot over the past decade. What I’ve come to focus on most deeply is heart rate variability. I have a brilliant HRV specialist, Dr. Leah Lagos on my team who works really closely with all of my teams. She does HRV training — if I’m working with a team of top decision makers, for example — with everyone on the team, ideally.
HRV is a really powerful way of training someone to get into a state of deep concentration, relax, deep concentration away from stress very quickly."
