I didn’t ride much over the winter due to the freezing cold and the the lakes being frozen over. I think since January I rode maybe four times, and I was not loving it! I hurt for about a week after everytime I got on the water.. not good.
The chance came up to head away for a two week surf trip and I jumped at it. I had my new surfboard freshly waxed up and I was ready to go. I noticed after my first day out that not doing any form of physical excercise over the winter was a mistake..
Two weeks away surfing works amazingly and I have come back to wakeboarding feeling fit and ready for the season ahead!
