The average surfer these days gets in the water at their local break once or twice a week, depending on their working hours and morning/evening commute. It’s likely that the destination you are heading for experiences far more consistent and powerful waves than you are used to surfing. For these reasons, it is important to consider a preparation strategy to get you in shape physically and mentally for your surf trip.

Concentrate your gym workouts, targeting your back, abs, legs, shoulders, and arms. They are about to take an absolute beating on your trip. Getting them prepared will serve you well and will enable you to catch more waves and your sessions to last longer. Be careful not to overdo it. Start small and work your way up gradually increasing your intensity and stamina.
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.
In addition to packing your favorite board and at least one backup, it’s crucial to be prepared with all the essential surf gear, especially if you’re traveling to a remote destination with no surf shop. Wax, sunscreen, towels, two leashes (in case one breaks), fins, fin key, rash guard, wetsuit (if necessary) and a simple ding repair kit are all necessary items to have on a surf trip.
