Nutrition for Surfers

What you eat affects how well you surf.

We all know that junk food has no place in a surfer’s meal routine…

But what are good “grab-and-go” snacks to have before and after surfing?

Sometimes it seems easier to grab a cup of coffee and a pastry — but that is only going to deplete your energy rather than fuel it.

I strive to include four components of a satisfying pre and post-surf snack.

Watch the video I made for you here to find out what is in my insulated lunch bag.

What are your favorite things to eat before and after surfing? Let me know in a comment below.
