Stretching, Mobilization and Warm Up Benefits for Surfers
It’s pretty simple really, the goal is to help prepare your nervous and musculoskeletal system before starting paddling out or prior to your surfing fitness or training program. In this Quick Moves video, tuck your head in as low as possible and twist slowly from side to side.
Remember, great athletes like Michael Jordan and Kelly Slater often only remain at peak fitness at the top of the pack, because they have avoided serious injuries. Warming up, stretching for surfing and mobilizing (especially your hips, back and shoulders) can reduce the likelihood of surfing injuries and keep you in the water (surfing well) for much longer as you age… By performing simple, effective movements like this one, you can also dramatically enhance your surfing fitness, so… reap the rewards and improve both strength and flexibility for a better surfing body.
Remember surfing is our medicine right?… So remain surf strong, fit and flexible & keep your exercise surfing workouts short, sharp & real.
