The 10 Best Resources For Lessons

Preparations for Learning How to Surf

Surfing is one of the sports that helps you to keep fit as it has challenging workouts and at the same time having fun. If it is your fist time learning how to surf there is a certain level of preparedness that you need to have. One of these initial one is to get a beginner friendly beach location and for the first time preferable one with warm water and no huge crowds. The beaches with sand bottom beach break are recommended because the water rolls gently. When you are starting lessons on surfing book yourself with a surfing camp retreat, because they have trained personnel who will concentrate on making you better, and they will supervise your surfing progress every day to ensure that you are getting better.

The other preparation that one has to undertake is to have a qualified surf instructor. Surfing experience is very important and a good instructor should be qualified. The instructor should start by educating you with theory lessons so that when you start the practical classes you will be well equipped on what to expect. Surfing can be dangerous especially if you are not equipped with the basics of the board management, ocean knowledge and the crowd awareness, a fun day at the beach can turn out to be a bad nightmare landing one in the hospital. Ensure you have the right surfing board for your lessons. For the beginners use the bigger board or the long boards about 8-10ft and as they improve the surfing skills they move down the size of the board.

When preparing to start your surfing lessons it is important that you loss any extra weight by exercising, the lighter and fitter you are the easier it will be for you to learn quickly, and it will be easier for the instructor to train you. You can also do simple exercises prior to starting your surfing course which will do wonders on your stamina. Some of the exercises that you can do include, pushups, pull ups and lie on your back extensions. You have to train on the upper body cardio because surfing includes lots of paddling. Do exercise like the boxing aerobics, swimming laps to help exercising the upper body cardio.

Practice the weight distribution and relaxed balance. This will also help in balance toning of your legs and keep them in shape. The information containing the balanced body training is found in DVD’s which can be sourced from sports stores.

The other practice one has to do, and perfect is to hold your breath for at least 20 seconds. Work on your flexibility by doing yoga.

Make your surfing lessons much easier by educating yourself.
