    I never get the back spasms, but the calf cramps are in full effect! Heavy doses of Bananas is helping a bit....wish all the months could be as good as September!

    Hint: A pair of compression shorts from ****'s or any sporting goods store, worn under your board shorts.....eliminates the inner thigh rash! It's crucial!

I have a hard time believing anyone could surf as much as I have in the last 2 weeks and not be spent (not spent enough to keep me out of the water though). I'm also not the old guy sitting outside waiting for the big sets, I'm the guy that goes down the beach catching everywave I can for
    2 - 5 hours. I would like to learn the secret to not being tired after that. Could be dietary though since i like to surf empty and feel like I'm starving by the end of a session.
    water food and ample supply of tylenol. im on year 25 or so and since i got a bark paddleboard i havent had any problem being tired. stiff maybe but i hate stretching.and im right there with you on the wave count thing. sitting still stinks

    i always keep a gatorade and some sort of snack (nutrigrain bar or something) in my backpack or car when i know ill be out for a while. ill take a break after a bit and chow down and drink and it gives me another boost of energy.

    and to colonelsanders, this is true. ive always worn compression shorts (out of habit) and i have never experienced any thigh rash.

    Just got out of the water with some crap south wind conditions. I did drink 2 full glasses of water before I paddled out. I did feel better, not sure if it was the water or the fact that I switched up boards and was riding my little
    5'6" quad. I was thinking that my mind was more on the surfing rather than the pain while I concentrated on getting that small board wired. My surf shorts are loose fitting mens exercise shorts with a compression short liner. Best shorts ever and never a rash, $12 at Marshalls. I will never by a pair of boardshorts again.

    Careful how you speak to your elders...when you start to hit your mid 30s and on, you start to thank the lord that you are still able to get out there. Most of my friends that I used to surf with in my 20s are retired from surfing...I appreciate every session mightly.

    Twelve Pack a Night Killed the Surfer in FAR more than a handful of Americans now suffering from a mid-life crisis. Keep Paddling!

    I trained for a trip to a Central American Point break before. I did interval training, paddling from one point to another, trying to make the workout last at least an hour. Something like 20 seconds sprint paddle, 45 seconds slow paddle, repeat for 15 minutes, then change to a different interval.

    It will get you in shape quick!
