In surfing, both nutrition and exercise are of extreme importance. A board floating in water makes for an unstable surface, requiring more physical effort, and maintaining the right body temperature also consumes a lot of energy. The right supplements can help you improve your performance in and out of the water.

Follow these tips and start progressing today!


Functional training is essential for better balance, proprioception and core stability. Exercises of this type will improve your ability to realize turns while surfing rail to rail, doing cutbacks, bottoms, aerials, snaps etc. You'll be able to keep and even improve your balance, correcting the positioning of your body.


Two to three hours before entering the water, have a light meal consisting mainly of carbohydrates but with little fibre. This will lower the risk of exercise-induced gastrointestinal discomfort. Whenever you don't have the opportunity to eat that long before going into the water, you can still go for one of the various supplemental solutions shown below, in the section "Before surfing".


Make your diet more complete with supplements that help you keep your body healthy, accelerate recovery and have sufficient energy to confront the unpredictability of the sea. This will make sure you're prepared for those unforgettable swells that you won't want to miss out on.
