Surfing is a very challenging sport. In order to be a professional surfer, you have to be in great shape. Not being in the best shape possible can potentially be life threatening. Taking a bad wipeout on one of those ginormous waves these guys ride can be very dangerous. If a surfer is tired, or out of shape, he/she might struggle with swimming back up to the surface and regaining their composure.
Actively surfing several times a week is a great workout for the body and enough to keep anyone in shape. But if you are a professional, of have aspirations on becoming a professional surfer, you’ll want to go above and beyond just surfing. As a professional athlete in any sport you want your body to be in the absolute best shape possible. Not for “looks” purposes, but for performance purposes.
