Outstanding Surfing Trainer

I've been using this board three times a week for a couple months helping me prepare for the upcoming winter surf season. I live in the Pacific Northwest on South Vancouver Island and am over an hour away from the nearest surf break. I also am 40 years old and don’t get out there enough to be in surfing shape for our big wave cold water sessions so I was starting to not have fun anymore and was seriously thinking of giving it up. That changed when I found SurfinShape and made the investment in myself and the purchasing of this product to get into the pool and started training. I just recently got out for the first session of the year and was so impressed with my stamina, paddling ability and just how much fun I had compared to where I was the last few years and it blew my mind. Let’s just say I have been rejuvenated and is all thanks to the training done with this board in the pool to help me prepare for this upcoming season. So if you’re a serious surfer, weekend warrior or just getting a little long in the tooth, you need to buy this board and start training. A huge thanks to SurfinShape and especially to Jay who answered all my questions about his amazing product and for getting me my stoke back!

Family Dreams

I have had the opportunity to not only get Surfinshape for my own dreams, but now I get to share those dreams with the creator of Surfinshape, Jay, to whom I can't wait to emulate one day! As you can see in the photo I added, I want nothing more than to go on surf trips one day with my daughter like Jay does regularly with his. I was going to post a photo of me training but since I am not going pro any time soon, I figured this was my way of showing how Surfinshape has entered my life.

Thank you for putting this together and I can't wait to get back to working out on my schedule soon!


I took two surfing trips to Cosata Rica this past year .I am strength and conditioning specialist so, I developed a surf specific weight training program combined with an intense swimming program. I thought I was in great shape and couldn’t believe how hard It was to just paddled out past the break. I had to let sets pass me by in order to catch my breath. I missed waves because I didn’t have the power in my paddle to get them. I was only able to surf for about 60- 90 minutes for 5 days with my coach helping me catch waves. For all that training I was disappointed that I didn’t get to surf more but, had another trip planned. The week I got home I found out about this surfinshape board. I ordered it immediately to use at my local Y. I did have a few older members complain but, due to the great design of the board both the lifeguards and aquatic director supported my use of the board. My next trip to Costa Rica was completely different. The first thing my coach commented on was how fast I was able to paddle out. I couldn’t believe it myself. It was still a long paddle out but I did it with ease and didn’t feel winded once I got ou there. I didn’t need to sit out there watching sets go by because I was too tired to catch anything. The first wave on the second set looked perfect for me, so I went for it without hesitation. I had the strength to catch it and paddle back all by myself. The waves were pumping for the 6 days I was there. I was able to surf for about 3 hours on all of the 6 days I was there. I got some super fun rides on the biggest waves I have ever taken with the least amount of help. There is no way I could have done that without my Surfinshape board. In my option this is a must have training tool for anyone who is taking a surf trip and doesn’t get to surf regularly. I can’t wait for my next trip. Thanks Surfinshape

Never let an inside beat you again!

I am almost 50 years old. I learned to surf when I was in H.S., in Panama. But I did not surf for many years. I now live in Boston, and a few years back I learned that there is surf around here! A winter wetsuit and few boards later I am back in the game. The problem, is that I do not surf all the time. I fall into the classic trap, the surf has to be good enough for me to make the trip, but if it is that good, then I am not in good enough shape to have fun.

Last year I decided to get in shape, drop some weight and work out. That really did help, but the problem is that I was in better overall shape, but still not in good enough paddle shape for "big" surf (big for me). I was lucky to find out about Surfinshape and their training boards. Since I started training with them, I have seen substantial improvement in my wave count. I remember the first time I went surfing after about a month of Surfinshape training. It was a beach break, in the winter in NH (The Wall). To my surprise the inside was no problem! That was a great feeling. I could also catch the first wave of a set, paddle back, and then catch one more wave in the same set! Another great feeling.

Nothing is free. Good diet, weight training, cardio, all contribute. But Surfinshape has become a regular part of my training routine. Highly recommend it!

Rocky Mountain Paddler

Great product!! I live in Colorado and just started using it to stay in shape for trips to Hatteras, NC where I spend only a portion of the year. Really helps eliminate “down time” of getting back into paddling shape. Used to swim but this is much more paddling specific. I train at my local pool in the summer and at the Rec. Center the rest of year. I highly recommend Surfinahape to anyone who doesn’t have regular access to the ocean.
