Even a website reciprocal link can help boost SEO ratings online.

Again a programme should be chosen to work on areas needed for surfing such as power, stamina and strength. This is again a programme used by Simon and is something to start with small repetitions (number of each exercise) and sets (each exercise) and build up week on week.

Equipment needed. Not much, suitable loose fitting clothing allowing you to move freely and space in which to move in. Dining room chair.

A good warm up is needed really getting all areas of the body pretty warm before starting. A 5 minute jog followed by lots of movement of the areas to be used. Your warm up should last between 10 and 15 minutes.
