Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 28 June, 2012 : - - SurfBodySoul has one fundamental purpose: to encourage and facilitate surfers from all walks of life to enjoy the beautiful act of wave riding in its purest sense, for as long as they can, without the barriers of stiffness, weakness and pain limiting their stoke and ability to enjoy the ocean.
Launched in September 2011 Surf/Body\Soul is a website that sells downloadable safe, effective, holistic and scientific exercise programs which enable our customers to simply surf better, with more fluidity, flexibility and balance whilst avoiding injuries. We work with a diverse range of surf professionals such as Fergal Smith, Rusty Miller, Paige Hareb & Chippa Wilson to test, tweak and improve our programs. In short, we sell training programs to nourish the surfers mind, body & soul.
