Improve your surfing with StickMobility

Posted date: 01-August-2019

A pre and post surf 5 minute StickMobility session can help prepare and warm you up for a surf, improve mobility and to recover between surfs.

 

Active mobility is an important part of surfing.  Ensuring you have strength through an entire range of motion will not only improve technique and power, but also help avoid injury and recover more effectively after a surf.  There are many techniques and methods to improve mobility and the range of mobility you body owns, but what’s important is that as a surfer, we practise moving functionally. 

 

Using Stickmobility we are able employ an aid to improve the way we move while increasing strength through these movements.  We can only really practices surfing in the water, but training our bodies to move correctly on land will define the surfer you can become in the water.

 

Although this is great for surfing it is also good for any activity or any person wanting to improve mobility in the trunk and the upper body.  It also lends itself well to SUPing, tennis, golf, swimming, kayaking and many other sports.
