If you aren't fitness training out of the water as a competitor, you are operating at about 80% of your body's potential.

The level of training and preparation by surfers attempting to qualify will be more advanced than ever before with so much at stake. Gone are the days when talent alone would cut it. Countries with large training facilities will be inviting surfers in to train the way the rest of their athletes have been for years. This camp is a way for you to level the playing field through a deliberate and mindful fitness program.
