Surfing Stats:

Calories burned (based on 140lb person): You burn 200.03 calories during 60 minutes of Surfing

Accessibility:  Difficult in landlocked areas, but a good option if on vacation in a spot that boasts waves.  Definitely worth a surfing lesson for fun and fitness!  Some areas also provide indoor surf pools for an equally good workout.

Fun-o-meter (scale of 1-10):  100.  Surfing is unlike anything else I’ve ever done.  There’s so much more to it than just sport.  It can actually be a spiritual experience as you connect with nature and surrender to the wave.
