What is surf fitness?
We all know surfing is a great sport but it can be physically demanding. Surfing requires a lot of strength to be able to paddle out and catch big waves. Surf fitness is on land exercise which can help you get better at surfing in the water.
Surf fitness lessons aim to build your strength and also warm your muscles up so you can be sure you don’t have an injury whilst on the water. Your stamina might also improve as you are doing extra exercises on the land.
