The countdown has started and you are now 2 months from jumping on that plane and heading to paradise in the hope of finding world class waves. Exciting times lay ahead with repetitive days of surfing, eating and sleeping to come. Your surf time will undoubtedly increase over the foreseeable future and with the added fatigue, it’s important to understand just how much stress your body is about to endure. Even a small amount of preparation will help it to cope that much better.
The average surfer these days gets in the water at their local break once or twice a week, depending on their working hours and morning/evening commute. It’s likely that the destination you are heading for experiences far more consistent and powerful waves than you are used to surfing. And there’s also a good chance the waves are reef breaks, which can add to the risk. For these reasons, it is important to consider a preparation strategy to get you in shape physically and mentally for your surf trip.
