In the spring of 2006 I decided to test the results of EFT in sports competitions. I resolved to train in an attempt to break Spanish record in Kite Boarding in Long Distance Speed. I used EFT on everything; physical factors, self-esteem, motivation, even to get a sponsor so I could dedicate myself fully to the project.
Even though I feel [name feeling], I deeply and completely accept myself...
Finally on August 26th of the same year I sailed 46 nautical miles with an average speed of 22.6 knots. Not only had I broken the Spanish record, I won and still hold the World Record. What surprised me the most was that everything was so easy.
A few months later I found myself thinking, "I have been practicing kiteboard for many years and the physical effort in it is minimal because it is the wind that does the work." So I decided to do something different and unknown for me. I found out about SUP (Stand Up Paddle Surf) and decided to give it a try. In this sport, in order to move forward, it is necessary to paddle, so you have to make continuous physical effort.
I set my goal to participating in the August 2008 SUP International Championship "9 nautical miles" held in Santa Pola, Spain.
Prior to enter the Championship, I had to become one of the top ranking competitors in Spain. To achieve this I had to participate in short distance races, called Open Races. I became the Spanish runner-up in this modality.
In the weeks before the Championship, the aspects to be treated with EFT were so many that my wife, Ilka, offered to be my motivating coach.
For the International Championship I did EFT tapping before the race and also mentally while racing, and finished first with more than two minutes advantage over the runner-up, breaking the 9 mile overall record.
I say all this not to brag about myself or my successes, but to emphasize the excellent results of applying EFT to oneself, to show the great potential of EFT and the significant changes that can happen in one's life, that are applicable to every single aspect of it and serve to broaden your horizons to wherever you set the limits.
My physical constitution is average. I won the SUP International Championship at 49-years-of-age to the amazement and surprise of the press and fellow sportsmen.
