The Fountain of Youth?

May 6, 2016

There's an old saying that Ponce De Leon totally missed the point when he was looking for the fountain of youth...all he really had to do was jump over the side of the boat to find it. The ocean is a source of revitalizing energy. Surfers thrive on riding the energy of the ocean -- waves of pure energy that have travelled miles upon miles to reach them. People who surf regularly can surf well into their 60's, 70's, 80's, and even beyond. In fact, you may notice that older surfers don't tend to look their age.

 

Sun and surf....did you ever notice that when we winter surfed we hardly ever had a cold ? When you have a cold you're pretty much stuck with it but.....a 7-10 day cold lasts about 3-4 days with sun and exercise. And, if you catch it early enough a good day of surfing will actually STOP a cold. 

 

Sun, salt water, and surfing......there is no better prescription for health than those 3 elements. The health benefits of surfing are numerous. Surfing is a great cardiovascular exercise, using mostly upper body muscles to do the paddling work, and leg muscles to guide the board once you're up and riding. Since surfing involves more time paddling, it provides an intense upper body and core workout.

 

Surf stoke reduces stress, and often gives surfers a more laid back attitude about life which is actually beneficial to their psyche. The high stress of today's world is detrimental to our mental health. Physical exercise, especially something as fun as surfing, helps to offset the negative effects of stress. Think about it: surfers are always playing in the ocean! It helps you stay young.
