How do you recover after an intense surfing session?

1 Views

There are few sports more physically demanding than surfing. A week of championship will drain your battery of energy after a few days and you will discover discomfort in muscles that you never imagined existed. Areas such as the arms and the back end up being very punished, so it's a good idea to follow a routine to avoid injuries and recover after a surfing session.

Although it sounds somewhat contradictory, every good recovery starts with a good warm-up and stretching before entering the water. It's important to get your body working gradually because the change of environment and temperature can play tricks on you and make your holiday a real torture, and unfortunately we're not talking about Shakira's song. Few people enjoy those little runs on the sand first thing in the morning in Famara, but they are more important than they seem.

The same happens once we end our surfing session. Before taking off the neoprene and thinking about lying down in the hammock, we have to do some exercises that we will learn throughout the week in the warm-up so that the body relaxes properly. And speaking of relaxation, there is a discipline called yoga which complements surfing perfectly and will help us to find that point of muscular and joint nirvana we need. Calima Surf offers classes in three different variants. Shoulders, trunk and legs will be more prepared for surfing if you combine a week of surfing with Bio Yoga, Hatha Vital Yoga or Kundalini Yoga. Discover here all the details of the yoga classes on Lanzarote taught by Itziar Garcia.

Yoga helps to control the breathing in each of its positions and, with the correct inhalation and exhalation, you will prevent the body from contracting. When applied to surfing, controlling these exercises will help you feel less tense, more agile, flexible and more balanced when getting on the board.
