TOGU – ideal preparation for surfing
Surfing is a unique sport. With nothing but a surf board, you’re trying to become one with the wave, to adjust to its speed and gradient, and finally to glide along it. If you manage to do it, it’s like an addiction. You simply can’t stop. It’s a virus you can’t get rid of.
This unique feeling is something you can experience here at our surf camp in Fuerteventura.
Something else that makes surfing unique is that it uses muscles which are not needed to such an extent in any other sport. You need a lot of strength for surfing. Some people can feel it the next day when their muscles are aching. In order to prevent this, we are offering different kinds of sports equipment to our guests here at our surf camp in Fuerteventura, including the TOGU Powerball and Jumper.
With the TOGU Jumper (picture above) as well as with the TOGU Powerball (picture below), it is possible to train the whole body. This is perfect to prepare for surfing. As already mentioned, nearly all muscles in the body are used for surfing. While the arm muscles are very important during paddling, the muscles in the thighs and calves are needed when standing on the surf board. The back muscles are used for both. These muscles can be perfectly trained with the TOGU Jumper and the Powerball.
With this sports equipment, you can train your muscles and it’s also great for stretching and relaxing. This is particularly important after surfing. This can reduce or even prevent muscle ache the next day. You can find out from our people on-site how to use this TOGU sports equipment and how to train and target specific muscles. Our staff has a lot of experience with that.
