Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 6 November, 2017 - Felipe Pomar wins International Ocean Masters Championships at Huntington Beach and announces Surf til 100 Surf Camp for Rote Indonesia in October, 2018. Arguably the World's fittest surfer for his age, Felipe Pomar has taken out the inaugural "International Master Ocean Championships" held in perfect 5 to 8ft surf at Huntington Beach California.

The Waterman’s competition for 60+ was the brainchild of Rabbi Nachum Shifren, a former Lifeguard, surfer, paddler and triathlete dedicating the event to Legendary Californian Pioneer Tom Blake & Duke Kahanamoku invoking the spirit of Aloha & Peace.

Invitees included iconic surfing greats, Joey Cabel, Jock Sutherland, John Peck, Shaun Tomson, and Ian Cairns.

The competition was based on 4 separate races; a beach run (1 mile), ocean swim (800 yards), paddleboard race and surf paddle race.

Due to a strong sweep and overhead swell, the course was so demanding that several participants couldn't compete. However, for Pomar “it was like a walk in the park”, the self-styled fitness Guru who turns 74 this month, revelled in the challenge, winning all 4 races!

The former World Champion and Big Wave Rider treats his surfing seriously with a balanced regime of surf yoga exercise, superior nutrition, and positive attitude. He believes if you look after yourself with his program, it is possible to keep surfing until you turn 100. Pomar exudes inspiration.

In association with Nemberala Beach Resort; Malole House and Atoll Travel, Felipe will be conducting his “Surf til 100” program over a 7 night/6 day special surf camp/seminar from Saturday 13th October 2018.

The course will include Felipe's personal regimen of exercise including surf yoga, stretching, weights and dietary insights that will add invaluable years to your surfing life.

“I will be providing inspiration, information, tools, stories, and valuable health and fitness wisdom. Basically I teach surfers what to do, and what not to do, in order to extend life and health span, and add years to their surfing life.”

Pomar has spent 20 years researching how to build and optimize health referring to himself as a Health Coach and a Life Extension Specialist as per his program “Surf Till 100.”

If you’re over 40 to 60 +++, this is what you need to keep your surfing back into mental and physical shape.
