2. Exposure to the sun will help you obtain vitamin D, which is responsible for strengthening bones and regulating the amount of calcium and phosphorus in the blood, among other things. Never forget to apply your sunscreen and renew it as many times as necessary.

3. Surfing improves your ability to balance. You are going to get on the board a thousand times while you are in the water, and that will gradually improve your ability to stand on the board. You can also practice balance while you are in the park or at home, with a skateboard, or an ordinary board with a ball underneath.

4. Consistent training increases your flexibility and also helps you prevent injuries, both in and out of the water. Carrying out a good warm-up and post-session stretching are fundamental factors to avoid muscle injuries.

5. It helps to counteract the effects of stress and so that you can rest better. According to studies carried out, practicing sports, including surfing, is beneficial for falling asleep and providing a good rest, something very important for your muscles to recover after each session.

7. You will meet new spots and new friends with your same interests. You will perfect your techniques and you will be able to share experiences.
