Great Surfers are Strong and Flexible
Back in the early 70’s Gerry Lopez was known as the, ‘King of Pipeline’ – he had flow, timing and style to become the, ‘worlds best tube rider’. Today, nearly 50 years on, Gerry surfs fresh powder in big mountains and yoga helps him maintain his strength and his flow. He may have been one of the first surfers to truly benefit from yoga.
Today many athletes including some of the worlds greatest surfers implement yoga practices into their surf training regimes. Yoga enhances surfing performance by improving postural balance, flexibility and breath mechanics – all vital for surfers. Yoga also improves moods and the ability focus – hugely beneficial for all surfers.
Yoga For Surfers - The Benefits
Physical yoga is based on stability and flexibility – which is the foundation of all athletic ability. From beginners through to professional surfers, adding stability and flexibility exercises into your surf training will improve how your body moves, both in and out of the water.
NB: Some Yoga can be dangerous, particularly if you have spinal or joint issues, so personalized flexibility and stretching with personalized strength conditioning is best. It’s probably not wise to rock up to an advanced yoga class off the bat.
