Mobility WOD Tips for Surfers

By Sean | In Mobility, Recovery | on November 2, 2011

Tom is the near unanimous winner for best costume!

After a long day of surfing the last thing you want is for your low back to ache like a mother. Most of Intrepid’s surfers came to us with a host of mobility issues ranging from tight hips, tight shoulders, extremely lordotic low backs, and low back pain. Kelly Starret from CrossFit San Francisco runs the Mobility WOD (MWOD) website and we’ve referenced his information many times before for posts but also for your specific mobility issues, and he recently addressed issues that are common among surfers. Take a look at the video below as he gives tips to improve the positioning of your body on your board, and ways to open up those tight hips. Surfer or not take a look and learn some new variations of hip stretches that can benefit us all.

    “Shakin’ that @$$, walkin’ like Shaft.” (Yes, that is in fact a movie quote.)

    Anna – whatever on the goats. I think you’ve got everyone’s goat. Gonna lap us all a few times around.
