Surf Improvement Course, Raglan, NZ
Its basic really. Surfing is a very demanding movement practice for your body. regardless of all of the other stuff that goes into surfing (technique, ocean awareness, confidence, external factors such as crowds) surfing requires us to have a base level of strength and mobility to excel. The better we move, the easier surfing becomes.
Although we can't control some of the things I mentioned above such as crowds, ocean conditions and so on, what we can control is our movement vessel - our bodies.
Surfing requires upper body strength, spinal mobility, core strength, rotational capacity, balance ... the list goes on.
If we support our bodies to function to their best capacity on land, we will support our ability to have more fun in surfing...
After coaching for years I see the same problems come up again and again. Surfers hold back their technique and performance because they are simply not strong enough, not mobile enough and do not have adequate control and endurance in the places they need it the most.
The classes will be live on Instagram at 6:30 pm (NZST) every Monday night. All you need to do is log into Instagram at that time, and begin watching and following along live.
My account on IG is _thesurfbox_
If you cannot make that time the video will be saved for a period after on _thesurfbox_ Instagram TV.
I look forward to seeing you all there.
Please note - because I do not know everybody's personal health history and to be on the safe side these classes may not be suitable for those with acute injuries or pre or recently post natal participants.
