The benefits of surfing goes beyond just being physical- it’s also great for your mood and your mind. Quantum Physique promotes being physically active and mentally balanced. Find a sport that you love, that motivates you to be active. Here are some reasons surfing is a great sport:
Promotes Physical Strength: Surfing is a great cardiovascular exercise that keeps your heart pumping. Since a large part of surfing involves paddling, which is low-resistance, you get a good core and upper body workout. Once you find a wave to catch, you are using your core for balance, and your legs remain active. Water sports tend to be great full-body exercises, and surfing is no exception.
Promotes Weight Loss: The average person can burn around 400 calories an hour. That hour tends to go by very fast and you will more than likely want to surf longer than the hour!
Mental Benefits: Surfing is done in nature, fresh air/oxygen and vitamin D. Any physical exercise leads to the release of endorphins which provide a natural euphoria and elevates mood.
