Luca Bider is a lifestyle & wellness consultant who dedicates his life to adventure, health, fun and freedom.

Through his professional & personal experience, Luca now empowers others who are feeling trapped, stuck and unhappy to instead be in the driving seat of their lives... and to live a more simple, but fuller life!
About Luca Bider
I have been through many life transformational experiences. From leaving my corporate job to become a surf coach, Life Coach, healer and Entrepreneur; from moving away from the city and now living on tropical islands; from feeling disconnected to nature, others and myself, to now being entirely happy, healthy and creating a new concept of success.
I was determined to live a simple and yet fuller life - and through gaining knowledge from the masters, acquiring various skills and tools, plus using my internal willpower - I created that exact reality for myself!
Here is my story and various life transformation adventures...
Life Transformation 1 - HEALTHY LIVING
Sport has always been a large part of my life, keeping me busy and healthy throughout my adolescence, and still today. Karate, tennis, swimming, it made all the difference when I was growing up. However, I was very thin, and I suffered from breathing problems, complicated by various ruptures of the nasal septum. So, I had to learn how to take care of my body, know how to deal with the fatigue, the tensions and the sleep difficulties.
At the dawn of my 16th Birthday, I went through a significant change. An operation to open the nasal septa. The doctor said to me, "Now boy, you will breathe in a new way for the first time, no longer from your mouth."
From that moment on, I could breathe properly! I learned to train my body with better muscle and cardio-vascular results: swimming, surfing, running, cycling and bodyweight exercises during my high school years. I was unstoppable!
I went into the Italian military becoming more fit, skilled and fine-tuned.
It was my gym of life outside of the family.
Life Transformation 2 - FREEDOM
Then corporate life happened. I started developing unhealthy lifestyle habits, as one does when living a busy, stressful life full of demands and deadlines. I experienced what it meant to live alone, focus on launching my corporate career and be promoted to manager by the age of 26, which was a massive achievement at such a young age. Even though I was in the nutrition and health industry, I could feel my health taking a back seat over my drive for achieving monetary success.
I looked up to my incredibly successful directors, and yet, when I examined their lives, they were unhealthy, unhappy, overweight, overworked, overwhelmed and not enjoying life. The whole concept of success in the corporate world is based on your paycheque, and you overcompensate your stress with short holidays during the year. To me, this wasn't living! I wanted to drive my own life rather than for it to be driven by others!
I was searching for freedom. I wanted to be autonomous and follow my passion instead of making money for others. It took me another five years, but eventually, I left my job in a positive way and on a profit. I turned 29 and in two weeks, left my ten-year corporate career, got married and decided to move overseas.
Canary Islands, Brazil, Tuscany become the ground for my new business and passion.
From 2006 to 2016, I had extraordinary years full of experiences, travel, personal and entrepreneurial evolution. I started off managing surf schools with international clients, then being involved with their PR, organizing surf and holistic events and managing businesses. At the same time, I also devoted myself to the study of various disciplines. These ranged from reflexology; to acupressure; NLP; and Life Coaching. During this time, I also got divorced and left any codependent relationships behind. Therefore adding to my freedom and living a life that was based on my instincts and intuition.
Life Transformation 3 - SPIRITUAL CONNECTION
I have travelled extensively, and my heart fell in love with South-East Asia. Not only because of the waves and incredible surf locations but also because of the local community. The Balinese culture is very different from the Catholic upbringing in which I grew up. Becoming part of a multiethnic community has enriched me. The locals live a simple life. They are warm, kind, happy and generous - even though they are not a wealthy nation. I learned that wealth doesn't only come from money. And that happiness is something we need to find within.
Travelling the world, I discovered that by having a deeper spiritual connection - and by connecting to nature, others and my higher self - was what would bring me true happiness. I have grown as a person by watching, embracing and experiencing new cultures. While living in Bali and Lombok, I also learned the benefits of living a simple Yogic lifestyle and how Yoga helps me to feel balanced, calm and of course improves my surfing. I completed my Yoga Teachers Training as well as my Shamanic Breathwork facilitation and Astrology certification. All of these modalities have taught me so much about my life and how to be more mindful.
Life Transformation 4 - PURPOSE
Now, I am passionate about teaching others the shortcut to living a simple and yet fuller life. This is my purpose, and I am dedicated to taking all that I have learned and support others. I do this through my book; Life Coaching; sharing online content of yoga, meditation, surfing and coaching techniques; and through in-person events, Bali travel tours and guiding mystical journeys.
It's unbelievable how the right guidance can quickly empower you, saving precious time and money. Follow my journey and work with me to complete your big shift just as I did.
I am living a simple and fuller life, and it's time for you to do the same!

Have you ever imagined a life outside of the box... full of travels, encounters and discoveries? "Surf, Travel and Freedom" is a lucid autobiographical tale that will make you dream - accompanying you through the choices, motivations and survival techniques of a pilgrim surfer.
Luca Bider has chosen to fulfill his dream, to chase the best waves on the planet full time, while living a simple, healthy & meaningful life. A passion born on the shores of the Mediterranean that led him to explore the Atlantic first, then the Pacific and finally the Indian Ocean.
Full of sensations and novelties, adventures and freedom, this first book is a clear example of an engaging breath of fresh air, a journey that faces the essence of life, where Luca, today a coach and independent entrepreneur based in Bali, Indonesia, takes you with him through the world of surfing, passions, fears, discoveries, the journey.
A text that is involving, fluent, universal, clean and positive. Proof that will is power, as if to demonstrate that some young Italians are continuing to look for a place in the sun, emigrating, today in search of the essence of life, no longer out of need for sustenance, but to need for freedom, travel, adventure.
Full of advice for independent travelers, reflections on the emotions felt, descriptions of dream landscapes, and careful in describing the inner changes, this non-fiction work is perfect for traveling without risk, for imagining new possible futures, for having constructive fun. Luca, an all-Italian Paul Theroux, will lift your spirit and open up to an underrated world, far from the lights of the show, from the cacophony of the Italian media, close to the essence of life, which is present in all of us.
