High Performance Center
In partnership with @andaipilates, @power.surf and @smothstar
The Hidden Bay Resort Mentawais is the first High-Performance Center in Indonesia, specially designed to offer the best physical and psychological conditioning so that our guests surf at their best in the most perfect waves in the world.
A special team of physiotherapists, trainers, and surf coaches work full time at the resort providing a completely new Mentawai experience. Here you will find the next step in the evolution of your surfing!
All of this is provided by the Resort partnership with The Andai Studio. The owner, Andreia Fornaro, has the responsibility to choose all top-level professionals working at the Hidden Bay Resort Mentawai.
The main focus of our training routines is on stretching and regenerative exercises following the functional model of ‘Five Konzept’ developed in Germany. This allows our guests to enjoy their entire stay while maintaining peak performance levels in the water.
We also offer harder, more personalized workout routines to be executed in the resort under the supervision of one of our trainers – it all depends on each guest and their needs and wants.
“The result can be seen in each trip: older guys minimize their complaints about muscle pain and reduce their rate of possible injuries, while young chargers get to improve their performance dramatically.”
For surfers, Hidden Bay Resort aims to take performance to new heights and levels by offering the professional surf coaches from Power surf Team. Rodrigo Machado is the creator of the methodology based on natural ginastic movements and using Smothstar surf trainer to make the movements on land to later practices on our perfect waves. Whatever is the surf level, beginners, intermediate or advanced surfers, in only one trip you goona take your surfing to the next level.
SmoothStar is arguably the world’s best surf training tool, helping to improve technique, body position and flow on a wave. SmoothStar is designed and Distributed globally by SmoothStar International Pty. Ltd.
For a long time SmoothStar has been known to Australian Surfers as the best surf training product outside the water. However, unless you have tried a SmoothStar, it is hard to understand why it feels so much like surfing.
The SmoothStar product replicates the surf feel because the front truck has a special turning device called the SmoothStar Thruster. The Thruster makes the front of the board loose so the board can turn and drive off the back trucks – the same as you would with surfboard rails and fins… the feel is “rail-to-rail” surfing on land.
The Thruster is so unique and so realistic like surfing that we have had to spend a lot of money to protect our innovation with patents. The turns are not sharp, floppy or stiff – they are “Smooth” but as radical as you want them to be and that is why we call it “SmoothStar”.
