    Energy Drinks b4 a surf...

    Does anyone drink energy drinks before heading out for a surf session? or before any other type of athletic activity?
    I tried redbull before surfing a few times and have only felt thirsty 30minutes into it...

    I hate energy drinks. I stick with old fashion coffee... If I still need more energy I'll do some cocaine.

    lol... funnny. I drink lots of coffee... maybe that negates the effect of the energy drink!

    HA HA HA, this is good. I used to get a coffee and a sausage biscuit from Mcd's.... half hour into session I would have to get out and handle my business. Not addicted, but out of all the energy drinks I have tried, I stand by red bull. But usually, walking over the dune and seeing actual surf pumps me up enough.

    those things are terrible for you. i will admit to indulging in a monster now and then but not before physical activity. they cause cramps, dehydration, and a lot of other unwanted symptoms. they are great for mixing with alcohol but thats about it.

    I tried one once before a session. All I can say is it was the worst session of my life. I felt jittery and unstable, it was terrible.

    I almost always have a 8oz can of sugar free redbull before going out. It's only as much caffeine as a cup of coffee, and a little bit of caffeine is good for you before activity. Sugar isn't so good, so get the sugar free. Food is energy, though, so I eat some bananas or protein bars about 1/2 hour before going.

    I would avoid some of the other energy drinks since they can pump way too much caffeine into them.

    +1...I was all over the place...totally jittery. Can't believe that this would be something people would be interested ingesting. The side effects are just not worth it...

    "Water not only quenches you thirst better, it tastes better too."

    Energy drinks give me the jitters, despite drinking 3-4 cups of coffee daily. Water is my solution to staying hydrated & focused during sessions. Have you had your 64 ounces today?
