You can include a variety of different cardiovascular exercises such as swimming, beach running, band paddling, skipping and riding to help improve your fitness for surfing. Band paddling is an excellent way to keep your paddle fitness up when the surf is down. Use cardio equipment that utilizes both the upper and lower body. Cardio exercises that demand an interaction of both your arms and legs will result in better surf stamina.
Stretching before and after a surf session is vital for getting the best out of your surfing performance. The best stretches for surfers should help in a range of movements as well as better long-term contractions of your muscles which will help to decrease the risk of cramping up or injury. It is also crucial to your recovery from surfing and will help your muscles recover quicker and be ready for the next surf.
Individual training diets vary based on the level of surfing, amounts of training and competition, specific athlete needs, training goals, body composition goals, health and adjustment for growth in younger surfers. Eating a well-balanced diet is encouraged, with a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes, low-fat dairy, nuts, fish, lean meat, poultry and protein alternatives, as well as adequate hydration.
