The Art of Surfing will give you ideas for ways you can take your surfing to the next level. If you're serious about improving, this book can be a great resource-a textbook if you will-in your development as a surfer. The first chapter is dedicated to the basics of surfing in hopes of filling any gaps in nitty-gritty knowledge and getting everyone on the "same page" so to speak. Whether you've been surfing all your life, or have only recently "gotten hooked," I urge you to pay close attention to the information in that chapter. Even though a great deal of it may sound familiar, it will help lay the groundwork for this book's performance enhancement sections. The remainder of the book was written with the intermediate to advanced surfer in mind. I aim to empower both the recreational and competitive athlete and, as a result, improve the way surfers prepare to reach their goals. Knowledge of performance enhancement techniques can help you surf better every day without injury, get ready for a two-week surf trip, or aid you in reaching competitive aspirations.
