    I do kipping because that is what the CF workout calls for unless noted. Or if you want to do dead hang. And I can do dead hang pull ups. Just not 35 of them with the rest of the workout I posted plus 3 rounds of it.

    Just run a lot every day and do core stuff. Helps with your surfing. Saw vids of crazy abs and leg balance workouts kelly slater does. so sick. But lifting is overated.

    [QUOTE= But lifting is overated.[/QUOTE]

    I guess only a select few people enjoy feeling sore the next day to the point where you can hardly lift your legs out of bed.

    I enjoy lifting, but i'm not a fanatic.

    I was in the weight room the other day for the first time in about a month and i did hang cleans, squats, dead lifts, russian dead lifts, lunges, and quadricep extensions. when i woke up the next morning i was unable to move my legs no matter how hard i tried. I couldn't even wear a backpack because my traps were sooooo sore!!! haha... its a good feeling though- hard to justify... its like surfing for 9 hrs. straight or something, and you feel soo damn tired by the time the sun is setting but the waves are good and you just keep pushing yourself. you can hardly paddle back out and you've got rashes under your arms from your wetsuit and a nice sunburn on your face but you keep going because its just fun. Then after you take a shower you're just exhausted...
    its that kind of feeling. most of you probably now think i'm crazy haha

    work to achieve a goal. design your workouts so that they satisfy your needs and so they enable you to perform at the highest level. for some people, lifting may seem overrated. It is overrated for people that are trying to develop a skill (like surfing) that does not need weight lifting because core and balance excercises benefit them much more.

    but in many other sports, weight lifting is very important. basketball, football, baseball, swimming, lacrosse, water polo, wrestling. You need to understand how weight lifting effects each of the sports individually. Once you know that, you can tailor a workout that is specified for a certain sport or goal.

    Haha..no worries... I didn't think anything by it. Kipping is hard to do.. Just started trying to do it the other day and kind of have my own version of it. I want to actually see how many dead hang's I can do in one good round.. I really think I could get close to or around 20.

    and dave i didnt know it was made illegal sorry for the incorrect info. i have never been in the marines and i dont plan on going. i just had a trainer one time who used to be in the marines and told me kipping was legal. he must have been in before 95. thanks for the info
    no worries dude, here is some more info though - pull ups in general are not an excercise that you should really be trying to max out on like that, you'll end up with rounded shoulders which come with a whole ****load of problems, believe me.

    Here is a recent story that might contradict some of what folks are saying on here. A 30 year old guy I work with just got back from a trip to San Diego. He is an avid jogger and runs about 5k every day (sometimes more) and enters 1/2 marathons on occassion. Just 8-10 years ago, he lived in OCMD, surfed all the time and worked as one of the surf shops down there in the summers. Although he's in great cardio shape (and works out some upperbody with weights) he hasn't surfed though since college. On his SD trip he rented a 9 1/2 longboard and took it out at one of the breaks in Oceanside on a shoulder/head high day. He couldn't even paddle his longboard (easy paddler) to get outback and after a 5-10 minutes battle against the ocean, he just turned around and rode the white wash back into shore. He was very frustrated (being a past decent surfer whom currently is in great shape) but he said surfing endurance obviously has very little to do with being in great shape and fit.

    Moral of the story, to get in shape for surfing you have to go surfing frequently.

    Agreed, at least from my experience. There just isn't any substitute for the real thing. I don't know why it is that way, but it is. I haven't tried the Vasa trainer, maybe that routine works well.
