I love surfing. I always have. It’s my thing. Ever since I was a teenager when I could spend a good part of our summer vacation to the coast each year out on the waves, it’s been part of me. Unfortunately, I wasn’t as lucky as the Z-Boys. I lived miles from the ocean. So for the most part, my dreams of being a world-class surfer never really did more than fuel a few weeks of misspent youth.
Fast-forward to now, where I’m older and have a job and STILL don’t have the time to surf– yet I still hit the waves at least every year. The problem is, I just couldn’t get better at a rate that I wanted. That was until my most recent trip when surfing with a guy about my age who was twice the surfer I was. After a particularly painful run for myself, I watched him ride the wave in and had to ask him how he had time to keep his skills fresh as an adult. He smiled and said all anyone needed was STS (as he called it). This, as I would be grateful to find out, was Surf Training Success— an online program that helps anyone who wants to learn to surf better enhance their abilities without having to be at the ocean?
Surf Training Success Product Details
So how’s it work? Simple– this is an exercise program developed by Chris Mills– a world-class professional surfer. Chris understood that people like me wanted to learn to surf more and had time in our routine for exercise, but didn’t have the resources available to develop core muscles used for surfing or understand how to use those exercise to our advantage when out on the water.
Chris identified a real need and zeroed in on it in impressive fashion. The course is very well organized, and presents videos and manuals on all exercises and routines. Everything is explained both in how you have to do the exercise and in how it will improve your surfing abilities. It’s pretty straight forward, well put together, and best of all– it works just like it claims.
When you come to a review, you want a little personal touch of what the person who used the product liked and didn’t liked. The following sections of my review focus on giving you my personal reactions organized into things I noticed that were good and things I noticed that may cause some buyers to be better off with a different product. Here’s what I liked:
The thing is, I can’t always be catching waves. One of the best things about Surf Training Success is that it helped me focus all of my gym and exercise time into becoming a better surfer. I never had the insight into how every day work out equipment can be used to improve my performance on the waves even when I can’t surf for months on end! This to me was just the best thing since getting to and from the beach is not as easy as it used to be.
No matter where your surf game is lacking (strength, flexibility, paddling, rotational power, etc.) you’ll find exercises that focus where you need it most.
Included are videos to take you step-by-step through every last exercise and routine. With 6 in total (and the accompanying manuals) you’ll find tons of information and examples to ensure you are doing exercises correctly.
The number of bonuses and books that come with this program adds a great value. I didn’t personally need every last piece of it, but that’s okay when it’s under $50, I can afford to have the comprehensive version. Rest assured– you’ll get what you pay for and then some with this program.
Got ta love this– Chris Mills, the awesome professional surfer who put this incredible program together, is offering money back to anyone who isn’t completely satisfied at any time within the first 60 days! That’s MORE than enough time to look it over and know that this program is right for you or not.
Just like I offered insight into what I liked about the Surf Training Success Program, here are things I felt warranted closer attention before investing your money:
First and foremost– just as surfing is not for everyone, this program is not for everyone. You need to be reasonably active, fit, and free of injury to perform the exercises in this program. If you are looking to begin an exercise regimen or are unfamiliar with surfing and strenuous workouts, you may want to try a starter exercise program first.
This is a bit like the first point, but it needs to be said– this isn’t a miracle product. You don’t read the books and wake up being a much better surfer. In fact, if you don’t practice and study the program, nothing will change. So think about it, do you have the time and willingness to take your surf game to the next level? If the answer is YES, then you need this product.
This is an online only product, so if you live in some of the best areas of the world for surfing, getting online may be a problem (not every exotic beach I’ve been to has reliable internet or even reliable electricity) and you should likely stick with in-person instruction. However, if you are like most people in the world and you don’t live right next to the ocean but want to surf better, this is absolutely for you.
To Sum it all up …
This isn’t one of those programs that’s or anyone looking to exercise. It’s a very specific program to help surfers and those interested in surfing develop their surfing skills without having to be on the water all the time. Does it improve your weight, fitness, and energy levels? ABSOLUTELY? Should you sign up for this program if that’s what you are looking for? Probably not. This is for us surfers out there– even if you’ve never been able to spend enough time on the water to earn your cred– this is for you.
Simply put it’s the best and the cheapest surf training program I’ve ever encountered. Couple that with a money back guarantee and the choice is a no brainer. Order now and start seeing the results in your surfing game in no time!
