Why This Guide Was Created

It is very common knowledge that a proper attention to fitness improves athletic ability in surfing. This is written all over the surf media outlets indicating how you can improve your surfing by following a few steps. Most surfers look at that and say, “Great! I will do that and become a better surfer”. Unfortunately that lasts for a week or two and plateau sets in to leave you with little improvement in your fitness and no noticeable change in surfing endurance or strength. This is because gains in athletic ability don’t come from a few simple exercises or steps, they come from a properly periodized training program, similar to that of a world class athlete. It is time we start treating surfing like other major sports which benefit from having “REAL” training programs that last months, not days.
