Whether you do an exercise routine at home or on the beach, you should focus on improving: your speed, your fluency, your endurance and your motor strength.
2. Prepare yourself mentally to do your best: The mind is powerful
The maxim of the mind over the body is totally true. The mental aspect of the sport is important. And surfing is one of the sports that brings the greatest benefits to mental health.
