Surfing

Over the past couple of weeks I have done a lot of surfing, and I started to wonder what are the health benefits in surfing? Surfing provides cardiovascular fitness from the paddling you have to do to get far out to catch a wave. You especially use your shoulder and back muscles. Once you stand up, you use your core and your legs to keep balance. I like spending time outside therefore, surfing is a good way for me to relieve stress and enjoy nature. When you are out on the water time flies by, and you forget about watching tv or just sitting around and doing nothing. Surfing is a good distraction and a great way to get some exercise in.

    This is really interesting! I didn’t know that surfing helped with your cardiovascular health but it makes sense because of what you said about the paddling!
