I created this poster to speak to the benefits derived from the combination of good technique, extreme confidence and massive power. To achieve this level of ability you must use your breath throughout the effort to coordinate the motion, channel the proper emotions and fire the core to generate the needed power and accuracy.
And, frankly, it's rather beautiful. Don't you think?
Any stand up paddler will tell you, surfing a wave like this is NOT easy! It takes a lot to pull it off. A lot of fire in the core. If you'd like your own, high-resolution copy of this poster (the photo of the SUP surfer is by Bernie Baker) click here.
