Hey Surfing Athlete!

New Research on Surfing Fitness & Training
Olly Farley is a surf researcher who has recently come out with scientific data that shows pro surfers seriously push their bodies limits and need to consider specific facts when surf training. He says that surfers, “who are fitter, stronger, and more powerful will dominate the lineup when surfing”. This means that your surfing fitness and training program will have a dramatic impact on your water time. It also means, spending more time on your board or in the water is a crucial element to improved ocean performance.
