“Innovation is surfing on uncertainty, surfing is innovating every day with the certainty of appreciating simple things.”
As Kelly Slater once said about surfing: “It’s like the mafia… Once you’re in, you’re in. There’s no getting out.”
“Surfing’s one of the few sports that you look ahead to see what’s behind.”
THE SURF BENEFITS
Cardiovascular and heart health: Surfing is a great cardiovascular exercise, using mostly upper body muscles to do the paddling work, and leg muscles to guide the board once you’re up and riding.
Mental health: Physical exercise, especially something as fun as surfing, helps to offset the negative effects of stress.
Better sleep: Numerous studies show that regular exercise, surfing included, increases the positive benefits that sleep brings.
Workout: Surfing strengthens the core and legs, and it develops your body through the constantly changing movement and height of the waves.
Muscle strengthening: Paddling strengthens back and shoulder muscles, and you can get toned legs and a build a strong core by surfing due to the balance required once you’re up on the board.
