I hydrate the day before. Before surf. electolite water, poweraid often mixing in Super Pump as a preworkout lift. Increases vascularity getting more blood to the muscles. Also bananas for potasium to the muscles. Some coffee but not enough to make me pee (winter surf).

Thread: Energy Drinks b4 a surf...
to qualify why I posted this in the first place.... it seems like everytime I turn the tv on, that redbull commercial is on where at the end that space jumper is leaping from his capsule.... after like the umteenth time seeing it, I felt like calling bRll shRt on it. seems like most people do not drink the stuff before activities other then going out for the night...

I've drank that 5-hour energy before paddling out before, didn't really make me jittery, but one of the times i was out there I started feeling like I my heart was racing, so i just usually have my normal cup of coffee and drink lots of water.

I drank a red bull once... I charged Jaws, did a back flip on my dirt bike, break danced a bit, knocked out Manny Pacquiao and jumped off the moon... That sh*t is crazy!

Seriously, those energy drinks are not good for you. 5-hour not so much but some people can't really handle all that folic acid and b-12 all at once, thus the heart racing Zippy experienced.
I usually drink two cups of coffee per day and either one glass of sweet tea or a Mexicoke at lunch. That's it for caffeine. If I'm doing a dawn patrol I might drink a half cup of coffee, always eat at least one banana and do a quick set of push-ups and sit-ups really fast before leaving the house to get the blood moving. Seems to work unless I drink too much the night before, I'm sluggish no matter what if that happens.

No energy drinks for me... I think they taste like sh!t and they're too bloody expensive. Besides... they stain your teeth, have too high a calorie-to-nutrition ratio, and all that artificial "sports drink" crap scares me. I drink a lot of coffee, but don't purposefully coffee up before a session. The prospect of a session gets me amped enough. Sometimes too much... if it's pumping, I'll often get that "I could crap myself right now" feeling.
