Surfing with a Theme Song

August 18, 2016 0 Comments

There’s nothing better than grabbing your board and heading to the waves to get some surfing in. What if you could listen to music while you did it, though? Having your jams with you might just be what you need to enhance your time in the ocean.

Better Athletic Performance

Action paired with the beat of music allows us to have faster, more consistent movements. This means better balance and energy on the waves! It been proven that a variety of music helps athletic performance, so whether you want to rock on the waves to some Rolling Stones or glide to some Beethoven, it’s bound to enhance your performance.

Longer Duration & Concentration

Music can have an amazing effect on our minds. It distracts and makes us less aware of physical exertion. This then causes pain to be postponed, allowing for more time on the waves! According to The Guardian being distracted by your tunes can improve athletic performance by up to 15 percent.
Balance and catching the waves takes some concentration, especially if you’re new to surfing or trying a spot you’ve never been to. Though music may distract you from pain, it also allows you to zero in on what you ARE trying to focus on. It allows the athlete to more easily picture in their head what they want to accomplish and how they will do so. This would be incredibly helpful for surfing to concentrate on the specific movement of where you are and where you’re going next.

Surf with a Theme Song

In addition to increased athletic performance and ability to concentrate, wouldn’t it just be fun to have your favorite jam playing as you’re tearing up the waves? Most land sports get music as they warm up and perform. Take baseball for instance. Every player has their own individual walk-up song! It’s about time surfers get their own too. You can find the perfect waterproof player and headphones here.
Tell us your thoughts! How does music help you? What would your “walk-up song” be?
