Surfing insurance and stand up paddle board insurance clients at Outdoor Insurance Group are involved in what’s fast becoming one of the world’s hottest wellness trends.  Surf schools and board rental facilities have long known that relaxing on the surf on a sunny day and catching the waves creates the perfect balance for mind and body.  The trend is growing as surf schools continue to pop up at oceanside health resorts, capitalizing on the sport’s popularity as a funfilled fitness activity for individuals and families alike.

There are many physical benefits to surfing.  A great day of surfing offers a high impact cardio workout with short bursts of aerobic activity, followed by periods of rest and relaxation.  Intermittent periods of heavy paddling can build arm, shoulder and back strength.   Continual episodes of jumping up and down, bending and standing engage core muscles, building lower body and leg strength.   Balance and flexibility are essential capabilities and strengthen with every maneuver.  The sheer adrenaline rushes that occur when riding a wave release endorphins which are known to promote an overall sense of well-being.  And the benefits of vitamin D from exposure to the sun have been linked to better sleep, lower blood pressure, calcium absorption for strong bones and an overall boost to the body’s immune system.
