(La Selva, CA) June 01, 2008.Surf Stronger Provides Sponsorship to NSSA Mid-Atlantic Region
Surf Stronger announces sponsorship of the National Scholastic Surfing Association (NSSA) Mid-Atlantic region surf conference. The Mid-Atlantic is the newest of the nine NSSA conferences beginning their 2008-2009 competitive season in August 2008.
"It's great to see the younger surfers embracing the benefits of land-based training," says Scott Adams, CSCS, Program Director for the Surf Stronger training programs. "Strength and conditioning are a foundation for every sport, and especially important for surfers. The best surfers in the world are realizing the benefits of training and our programs help make surf-specific training available to more and more surfers worldwide. If we can teach the younger surfers the value of surf-specific training, we can create lifelong benefits to their surfing and their overall health."
NSSA Mid-Atlantic Coach and Director Anthony French says, "As a director and coach, I see the need to better our competitive surfers through areas of training that are outside of the water. It isn't just enough to be a good surfer; you have to constantly focus on building your strength, endurance, and flexibility. Regardless of your age or ability, using the Surf Stronger system will surely help your game both in the water and out."
