    I want to be able to paddle harder, longer (heh, sounds like a Viagra add) and be faster more balanced on my pop ups.

    Thanks!

    Didn't you see Chasing Mavericks? It's all you need to know.

    Correct... All you need is to find an older, wiser, salty dude to take you under his wing. He will make you do yard work and paint at first. Don't get frustrated, he is preparing you. You will fall in love, your friend will sell drugs and you will have an enemy ripper. But is important to keep your focus on surfing. His wife will die, he will be sad and drunk. And at the end the student will become the teacher....
    Then you are ready

    But don't forget those long lonely paddle outs on the prone paddle board.... and a bottle of water of course.

    I also like dumbbell workouts, there are a couple good ones on the Men's Health site I like to follow. Really good for muscle isolation and core strengthening. Don't forget to put some miles on your bike a couple times a week.
    if your posture is the same surfing and swimming, then you're doing something wrong. you'd be dog paddling.

    being a lumbering lummox, I'd be afraid of hurting some innocent by stander, or intertwiner since it's yoga.

    Don't even paddle out unless you can bench 4 stacks.

    no way man. you need to be doing box jumps, sprints with parachutes ties to your back, kettlebell thrusts, burpees, mountain climbers, and underwater rock running. to this stuff 6 times a week even on days when you surf, and you'll be ready to paddle into Ghost Trees at 16 feet at 30 seconds.
