    Well, whatever you do, don't rely on strength-training alone ... there is a serious cardiovascular aspect to surf paddling that weight-training alone won't accomplish. Also consider the fact that hold-downs will be much more manageable if you're not completely out-of-breath with a spiked heart-rate when you have to hold your breath for an extended period of time.

    There's a lake near my home, I wonder if I can bribe the security to look the other way, but I'm sure some onlooker would get joy reporting me out in it paddling.

    Gruvi, if you don't take Gaff's suggestions, I would recommend selling those 3 barely used boards, but for god's sake, please paint over that psi symbol before trying to sell.

    Koki went on my ignore list for his gauchness, immaturity and faux machismo enabled by the anonymity of internet. I'm here to be in a forum and I am being only polite to all others. Feel free if you want to join or unsubscribe from behavior like Koki's. I can readily ignore disgusting behavior and commentary. This way I eventually only read from forum members that matter. Tjank you to those not being JO's :)

    Hey, don't talk to Koki like that. That gets me angered.

    Gruvi, I have a suggestion to meet like minded/skilled people...........do it at the beach. Live.......in person.

    Surely you have noticed that Nobody makes plans with others on here to meet up and eat pizza. I frickin love pizza but internet offers don't appeal to me. Hey aren't there dating sites and stuff you can go on. Try whereblackpeoplemeet.com

    Gruvi, I would avoid making internet relationships that you hope to bring into real life. They don't usually work out too well. That guy you meet on line might actually have a vagina !!

    Pull ups for your Back, diamond push ups for your triceps, and to really target your shoulders elevated ur legs on steps and do pushups. You can lift 3xs your body with weights but nothing is better than liftting your own bodyweight and you look like a douche with a curl bar

    Good lord will you people please stop giving exercise advice.

    Do you guys really think Gruvi is going to actually do this stuff? Do you really think that somebody can't figure out how to exercise on their own? How/why do people get caught up in this nonsense? I guess there's alot of exercise gurus on here who want to show off their knowledge..........about push ups.

    Hmmm, the lifegaurds make their first appearance of the summer at my spot tomorrow....Area schools will be done by mid-next week at the latest(Ha, Sandy added some days to them kids' year)..........the forum is getting really summer-ized....... Coincidences?

    In all seriousness...

    it's FRIDAY!! and I just couldn't resist pokin' some fun. Dude, Gruvi, if i saw you out there in the lineup you would never know it was me. I am one of the friendliest people, especially when I'm surfing, it's when I'm the happiest me. And in a way I'm stuck in your situation, work keeps me far enough away from the ocean that i end up missing a lot of the very few good days, so lighten up compadre...

    This whole "season" thing, you have to realize, is exactly what draws the negative comments...lol...sh#t, dude the season starts Jan 1 and ends December 31st...and for the most part the people that surf it during that season are not jumping for joy when the guys who think the season just started start showing up in the water...respect.

    Thanks, PJB. I know sometimes people are offended by me, but I'm Kenny F$ckin' Powers, *****esss! Reigning supreme in all it's almightyness.

    Tonight at work it's pushups then! I see where the triangle pushups hit hard and fast can especially emulate the strength and cardio of paddling.

    To be fair to the two guys I was forced to ignore, I am not paying attention to your posts anymore so all you're doing is for those that care to read from you.

    gruvi: You should move to New Zealand. I think their "Sheep Workout" is about your speed. Then all you have to do in addition is swim around the breaks in your best imitation of a seal to create your perfect surfing workout.

    Plus, there's this dude down there you really should look up. He'll probably grab some pizza with you whenever you want... if you're buying of course... he's trying to get a business off the ground/out of the basement.
