Opening Season

Our Indica Surfing Fitness aims to give our surfers ideas, tips and programs to help build strength, fitness, power and endurance.

Surfing Fitness is a key component of performance for all surfers. Whether someone is a beginner, intermediate, advanced or elite surfer, their level of fitness will have a huge impact on how well they perform out in the surf.

When we are talking about surfing fitness, we are describing a number of factors that are important in performance and key to providing benefits in and out of the water to surfers of all levels.

Our aim is to build the performance of Indian surfing and Indian Surfers, we also want to introduce and begin to develop Indian Watermen. Without a solid surfing fitness base, surfers will not be able to perform at their peak and to their potential. We will also not be able to have surfers and water athletes joining us in our Waterman Training who have the sufficient and required fitness levels.

Our Indica Surfing Fitness Programs are designed to give surfers some ideas and assistance in getting fitter and stronger for surfing and aquatic sports. We will be developing this more and more especially as we begin to run out Indica Waterman Training Programs as these programs will be very surfing fitness dependent.

Surfing fitness is important for a number of reasons. To be able to perform at your best, a surfer needs to have good overall strength and cardiovascular fitness. To be able to last for long sessions in the water and be able to perform at consistently higher levels, a surfer needs good endurance strength and cardiovascular fitness.

To be able to perform strong critical maneuvers, a surfer needs to have very good joint mobility, joint strength and flexibility. SUP Paddlers and Prone Paddlers also need a very solid mix of training to be able to perform at their best. Paddlers need good strength for power and speed.

They also need excellent muscular endurance, cardiovascular fitness and aerobic conditioning plus anaerobic fitness to be able to train and perform at higher intensities for longer! When we have our full training programs up, all of this will be comprehensively written and included in a training program for our Indica athletes to train and follow. It will be the best, most professional training available for surfers and paddlers throughout India and quite possibly all of Asia!
