RUN AROUND DRILL
To develop all facets of a surfer’s fitness especially leading up to an important competition.
Go for a light jog on the beach followed by whole-body dynamic stretches, or have the surfers go for a short 20 minute surf to loosen themselves ready for a hard effort.
NOTES TO THE COACH:
This drill simulates the competitive heats where a surfer must run along the beach after completing a ride to an easier access point, because large surf or strong sweeps make it difficult to paddle back to the peak.
It is especially relevant and very specific training in the weeks leading up to an important competition.
