Functional training for better waveriding

Postby gustavofoerster » Thu Jun 02, 2011 3:53 pm

Hey there,

Like in traditional surf, i believe functional trainning is a great way to keep
your body in good conditions for hard training and trying new tricks on kite wave riding.

I made this video comparing some tricks with the exercise...Anybody with more informations please post !



By the way the season at Ceará is already blowing, and we got some nice sets yesterday.

Aloha

For training the right body stance and rythm for waveriding (and for having fun when I am landlocked and there is no wind) I am using these: www.carverskateboards.com

Also great exercise for the legs and training tool to train front side carving on your non-natural side.
