How to stay in amazing paddling shape when you’re time-crunched or it’s flat.

Long paddle out, catch wave, repeat. How many waves do you catch in a session?

Every surfer knows if you want to surf well when it’s good, you have to be a strong paddler with tremendous endurance.  While we’d all like to surf strong all day, very few actually do…

Once your paddling muscles are spent and you’re tired out, surfing technique suffers. Sooner or later, that’s when even the best surfers can experience a good ole thrashing… like wiping out, getting held down, maybe even bounced off the bottom or across a reef. Fatigue like that could seriously limit your fun.

The good news is many surfers have quietly discovered a better way to stay paddle fit and surf ready… with Vasa, the training secret of the world’s greatest swimmers. Vasa Trainers and SwimErgs are the best tools on the planet for gaining incredible paddling stamina & power. Regular Vasa workouts will keep landlocked surfers training to be stronger, better, faster.
