    I know there's some truth to the negative ion theory... it's used as therapy for some types of mood disorders. But I highly doubt that the natural concentration is high enough at the beach to create those same effects. I know that in one test, low concentrations of negative ions yielded NO results... low being about 10,000 ions per cubic meter of air. Only very high concentrations (<2.5 million ions per cubic meter of air) in controlled environments prove effective.

    Still... it can't be bad for you, that's for sure!

    I guess I lost interest when Point Break was mentioned. Ions schmions.

    I heard they measured a guys brain waves while surfing and they discovered it's the same as meditation, a transcendence state if you will.

    All I know is when I get a great wave, no matter where I am, I can ride it again in my mind for a week.

    Now THAT is something I can relate to.

    endorphins released from simply exercising are nowhere near the endorphins released when surfing. plus, there's a sustained elevated mood that occurs (with me, at least) for the entire day into the next day after a really good session or from bigger waves. i can't compare it to exercising. there's more to it than that. that's why a word was created for it called "stoke". imagine what those dudes feel like who conquer Maverick's or Chopes for a day feel like? that's why they are junkies.
