Why I Surf – Fitness and Flow


Have you ever wondered what all the fuss is about when you overhear people talking about surfing and why it seems like such an obsession, like a drug that they can’t do without, why all they want to do is be on the water catching waves?

NSP (Nature, Surfing, Products) has put together a series of short “Why I Surf” videos to shed some light into the many joys of why people surf. We found that people have so much more in common, than not. The commonality of why, creates a sacred bond and close friendship among surfers, that you’d swear you could hear a faint yeeeew as it reverberates across line-ups when someone catches the wave of their life – from the other side of the globe!

In this episode we bring in Stand Up Paddling because at the end of the day it’s all about what brings us to the water each day!  Here’s Part three of our Why I surf series.

Why I Surf – Fitness and Flow

Rachel Cantore is an American, health and fitness trainer from South Carolina, who takes us through a story of what motivates her to get up and get out on the water each day. Rachel finds being on the water much more invigorating and inspiring then going to the gym everyday. She connects with the water as it allows her to focus, balance and make room in her mind for positive thoughts and creativity. Listen to Rachel’s story and then leave your comments as to why you surf or paddle.

Why do surfers wake up at the crack of dawn or rush home after work for just a few moments of paddling through the surf to catch that last sunset wave? What is it that draws us to the sea day in and day out? What is it about surfing that pushes us beyond our boundaries, that tests our resolve, and forces us to challenge, but yet never quit, until we have conquered our greatest fears?
