    Winter weight loss?

    I was just reading a thing on surfline about nutrition and how to recover from a session. Anywho I was wondering do you guys know how many calories you burn per hour from surfing in cold water?

    Definitely a ton. Counting Calories is kind of silly though. Just eat a lot when you get out.

    depends on your metabolism, weight, heart rate, age, air temp, water temp, wave count, how hard you paddle, etc. there are many factors that go into how many calories you burn.

    thee only thing that makess winter surfing so much more exhausting is that wet suit. if you get a really flexible fitting wetsuit that keeeps you jsut warm enough and not enough to make you sweat jsut form wearing it then its like any other sesssion. but yah i do the same thiing...except i never eat alto before i know im surfing. thats so stupid. makes me so much slower. just wait till after. its so much more rewarding

    Yeah I eat a hour Before I get in the water. I useally eat a Muffing and peice of fruit. On cold days a good bowl of oatmeal and a glass of OJ is good . It gives you that energy burst you need mid session . And after I get out I usually eat a good meal . Chicken or Tuna sandwich and a bowl of soup.

    Not just eating right will help you with stamina and longevity of strength in the water. A good cardio work out and some weight lifting with work wonders in the long run .

    I am diabetic and during a regular workout need about 15-20 grams of carbs per hour to keep my blood sugar stable. During surfing it's usually from 40-60 (or more) grams per hour.

    That probably also has a lot to do with the fact that I dont surf all the time, so my body isn't very efficient at it. I imagine some of you that surf multiple times a week don't burn nearly as much.
