Was just wondering if anyone has any training ideas to keep surf fit during the gym shutdown. I work Fifo so obviously paddling/ swimming not viable but want to keep in reasonable fitness while away.

Google "the surf strength coach" Chris Mills. He's got a stack of free videos and one specifically aimed at stuff to do to keep surf fit during corona.

Hydro Mind is another one. I thought I was getting ripped off at first but this guy is good. Constant flow of information some good some not my thing but over time you work out what is right for you. Basic package is 80 bucks which if ur not working at the moment is expensive

I just do good old fashioned situps, pushups & squats. But there is a ton of surf yoga vids on YT. I like to get my exercises done in a few minutes, but I might do them twice a day if I'm not doing much else in the way of physical activity. Like mid morning & mid afternoon.

Coronas will fix it mate. Slice of lime perhaps.

Not much else you can do for a broken toe.
