What if I were to tell you there was a way to increase your surfing endurance without getting dehydrated so quickly and you could stay in the water longer without getting fatigued? The most likely answer would be a non-hesitant YES. This doesn't just apply to surfing, you can use this formula for other sports, but since surfers don't have access to water so readily as other athletes do, it remains to be a topic that is continuously addressed and rightfully so.
This is a simple "Do it Yourself" concoction that will be sure to keep you moving without fatigue or cramping. Tweak it as you see fit since everyone is different.
1-2 Tbsp of Organic Chia Seeds
1-2 Tsp of Raw Organic Honey (Manuka is our favorite)
1 pinch of Himalayan pink salt
1/8 + cup of purified water (you can eyeball this)
Bonus Add: 1/2 cap of Ionic Magnesium
Mix all of it together. Give the chia seeds about 20 minutes to soak up all the water (they soak up about 8-10 times their weight in water). Consume this magic about 30-45 minutes before your next surf session. The chia seeds will slowly be absorbed into the body and provide a continuous supply of hydration and fuel. The honey has complex carbs to provide the energy, the Himalayan salt and Magnesium provide numerous amounts of trace minerals and electrolytes to keep your muscles from cramping. Magnesium plays a big role in muscle cramps and dehydration, keeping these levels adequate can keep you in the game longer without fatigue.
Always remember to replenish your body after a surf session to put back in what was taken out.
