The study compared scores obtained by the 10 highest and lowest ranked athletes on the men’s 2013 World Championship Tour (WCT) of surfing. Significant differences (p<.001) were identified between the two groups’ average wave scores, average total scores and total heats competed. In addition, the average standard deviation (SD) of each surfer’s wave score was […]

Anaerobic and Aerobic Fitness Profiling of Competitive Surfers

Authors:
  • Oliver Farley; Nigel Harris; Andrew Kilding
Low relevance

Despite widespread popularity of competitive surfing internationally, very little research has investigated the physiological profile of surf athletes and attempted to identify the relationships between physiological measures and surfing performance. This study determined the peak oxygen uptake (V[Combining Dot Above]O2peak) from an incremental ramp test and anaerobic power (watts) during a 10-second maximal-paddling burst using […]
