Best Surfing Fitness is Paddling

50 – 60% of Ocean Surfing is Paddling.

Scientists say only about 5% is actual surfing.

Sometimes the best thing to do is just get out in the natural environment and paddle.

We paddle out.

We paddle for positioning.

We paddle to stay in position.

We paddle like crazy when caught inside.

Some of the best surfing fitness you can get is correct paddling & swimming technique. Period.

There are different methodologies with regard to CV performance – however, for the most part get out and paddle.
