Episode 7: Best Surfboard Bags

April 30, 2019

Buying surfboard bags are a lot like buying a surfboard- you can either buy a good one the first time, or you can waste your money until you finally get something of quality that will last you for years.

The short version of our recommendation on surfboard bags: it’s worth spending a little more on surfboard bags. While surfers who push hard or want to spend the big bucks will see the benefits in the $700 surfboard bag, you can get a really good one for $400. My recommendation for a good quality surfboard bag to travel for a reasonable price is the FCS Double/Triple Surfboard Bag Travel Cover. This is the bag that we have and we are extremely happy with the value and quality of this surfboard bag.

Episode 6: A Surfer’s Healthy Guide To Good Nutrition

April 23, 2019

Nutrition is all about what we put into our body. We need to look at our body as an expensive car. If you put the cheap gasoline in that car, it will not run to its best ability, but if you put the highest-grade gasoline, it will run better than ever. It is the same thing with our body, we need to put in amazing foods and liquids for our body to be performing at its best ability.

Whether you are a surfer at your ideal weight or striving to reach your weight goal is it simply a matter of burning more calories than you take in? The answer, I suggest, is no! Overall body health improvement as well as weight gain or loss must be factored in to the equation or you could be heading for problems.

We go over the different types of food you need to incorporate in your body and how much should be consumed per day.

Episode 4: Easy Ways of Tracking Your Workouts For Surfing

April 9, 2019

Tracking your workouts is soooo important. It may seem like an unnecessary chore, however, when you track your workouts you are basically gathering data about your body and physical attributes, seeing progress. Tracking your workouts for surfing is also a source of motivation and can help you recognize when you’ve reached your goals.

Tracking your workouts for surfing is very easy to do and the best way to see real results. When working out at the end of each session, we would recommend writing what exercises you did, how many times, for how long and so on depending on your workout. I would write it down on a notebook or on your phone, but somewhere you know won’t get lost. Whatever works for YOU!

What are the health benefits that surfing offers?

To most surfers, it will change their lives and will live with a surfing/beach lifestyle forever. Surfing has so many positive benefits of what it does to your body physically and mentally. This sport looks easy to outsiders as professional surfers cut through the waves with ease, but in reality, it is very intricate, it takes a lot of time and practice to surf well and read what the waves are doing. Paddling and standing up on a board will definitely be a cardiovascular activity, will strengthen your upper body, lower body as well as core strength and improve your flexibility. On top of all that the satisfaction of catching waves will become an addictive experience as you progress each day. Surfing will decrease stress and put you in such a positive mood.
