SURF LIFE

Surfing isn't just the buzz that surfers get when gliding across the open face of a wave (I wish), and anyone learning can testify to that! There's much, much more to surfing than the individual components of riding the actual wave, e.g. bottom turns, top turns, cutbacks, re-entries, tubes. There’s paddling out, duck diving, paddling for waves, taking off, taking the drop, getting caught inside, getting dumped, getting held down and struggling against rips and currents. To handle this wide array of highlights and challenges a surfer needs a combination of strength, cardio fitness, agility and flexibility.

HOW PILATES HELPS

Unlike some forms of exercise, Pilates does not over-develop some parts of the body and neglect others. While Pilates training focuses on core strength, it trains the body as an integrated whole. Pilates workouts promote strength and balanced muscle development as well as flexibility and increased the range of motion for the joints. It is also the reason that Pilates is so popular in rehab scenarios, as well as with athletes who find that Pilates is a great foundation for any kind of movement they do. ​

Some of the benefits you will see:
- Increased Flexibility
- Core Strength
- Improved Posture
- Weight Loss/Lean Muscle
- Increased Energy
- Increased Mind/Body Awareness

Pilates will help you develop greater core strength, power and speed through your surfing turns whilst developing improved balance and control in your surfing. In improving your abdominal strength you will be supporting your lower back, pelvis and hip joints - and will reduce your risk of injury in the surf.
