Surfing is a physically demanding sport and nothing can prepare you better to hit the waves than an extremely strong, flexible, and stable core. You need an effective surfing fitness plan to achieve that. The better developed your core, the better you will be able to rotate your hips for a bottom turn/snap/cutback, handle a big wave, duck, dive, and paddle out in the line-up. In almost every surfing movement, your abdominals are directly or indirectly worked. If you are a fan of pro surfing, I’m sure you have witnessed the chiselled midsection of all pro surfers.
Functional abdominal strength is quite possibly the most important factor for a surfer’s body. Your abs are at the centre of everything you do on the surfboard. They are engaged in every movement out on the waves, and the better developed they are the more prepared you will be.
In this exclusive video, Troy from Easy Surfing Fitness shows you how to perform 8 basic and extremely effective core exercises to build a stronger, leaner and fitter physique.
