    seems like a stupid idea to me. kind of like riding your bike on the road while listening to music. also, i would probably hate it considering i like to get away from all that stuff when i surf

    surfing isn't exercise...it might be a hell of a workout, but it's not "exercise" in the typical sense. thus, no music for me. if i'm cranking out 5000 meters on the erg at the gym, fine. if i'm outdoors, give me the sound of what's going on around me.
    you sound like a d o u c h e

    I'm actually really torn on the music idea... so anybody with experience with this id be really interested too.

    It's def worth a try for a solo session id say. Nobody's tried it ?

    Surfing with music?

    I know they make waterproof ipod cases and water proof headphones, but how easy are these to use while sufing and how durable are they? Does anyone have any positive or negative experience with listening to music while surfing, i am considering trying it out.

    now what's better than silence and the sound of a wall of whitewater headed towards you??

    Make your own music. Rat-a-tat-tat on the deck of your board and sing to the ocean.

    Don't get me wrong, i enjoy the sound of the ocean also; I just know when im out in the lineup i ALWAYS have a song stuck in my head that im singing to myself and i think i could definately get more pumped if i was actually listening to that song. Maybe one day they will have speakers set up in the actual surfboards hahah.
