    Hey Jossue,

    Yes we recommend applying wax on your Wavestorm foam board. It will help you get more traction.

    Here is a video I found on how to apply it. It’s pretty straightforward:

    There are many types of wax out there, different brands are available in different countries/regions, but most importantly, you want to get the right temperature wax for the water you will be surfing in. It is usually indicated on the packaging like in this example (sorry for the poor quality of the image 😅, it’s the best I could find) :

    Hey Clement,

    Usually, we tell our people that paddling (during surf sessions) is the best way to build endurance in your shoulders. It’s the best way to train your shoulders in the specific way that you need them to. We have experienced being out of the water for a few months and finding ourselves having to rebuild that endurance once back in the ocean. It would usually take about one week of surfing every day to find most of our endurance.

    I have just been kept from surfing for about a year partly because of Covid, and only recently got back to it. About a month before getting back to the water, I started “open water swimming” about 2-3 times per week. I felt this was the best way to get me fit and gain my paddle endurance back, and it totally worked for me. On my first surf, it almost felt like I had never stopped. I was even surprised by how good that went.

    Some shoulder training exercises can be done at home, but they seem to be more for people who need to build muscles, not for endurance.

    Hope this helps!

    Hey Clement,

    Thanks for sharing it with us, we will check it out. And it’s interesting to hear your feedback on it working for you.

    I am glad to hear you are enjoying the course content. We are actively working on developing a fair amount of new content and we cannot wait to start releasing it to you guys. Covid has been a challenge but it’s on its way.

    For now, our focus is really on the technical side of surf coaching since we still have so much more to share. We might get in the surfing fitnesses but it would be more in the Mid-term range.
