Many of us are aware of the power of the beach in making us look younger. With that said, when the beach is paired with exercise, you get a pretty potent solution when it comes to looking and feeling young. What activity out there utilizes the beach as exercise? Well, there is one that we can think of: surfing!

If you’ve been surfing often, you know of its effects on your body, specifically when it comes to anti-aging. If you don’t surf and want to know more, keep on reading.

Here are four ways surfing can help you look and feel young:

1. It Relieves the Mind of Stress
First off, the beach itself helps to relieve you of stress. Have you ever gazed at the ocean feeling your burdens drift away and sink into the deep abyss of your mind, never to be found again? The ocean breeze often seems to blow away any worries you might be having, replacing them with a sense of calm. At the beach, no one is there on your back, waiting for you to complete a document or yelling at you for being a few minutes late. The only sounds you’re going to hear here is the rhythmic crashing of the waves and the soft whisper of the wind.

As a surfer, you’re always surrounded by this kind of environment. Not only is it a great way to get in some exercise, but also an activity that will relax and recharge your mind.

2. It Strengthens Your Cardiovascular System
Surfing puts your cardiovascular system to work, helping you burn fat and keeping your system in good condition. With a healthy cardiovascular system, your body becomes overall much healthier, enjoying a stronger immune system as well as much more stamina to carry out different activities for prolonged periods. Of course, this high level of energy contributes significantly to making you feel younger again. You’ll soon find that you’re able to participate in activities and keep up with the younger folks much better than you once did!

3. It Helps You Maintain a Youthful Appearance
The sun, sand, and see all contribute to you looking young again. Apart from giving you a youthful tan, the sea helps tighten your skin, minimizing the appearance of wrinkles. The sand also acts as an exfoliator, scrubbing off the dead skin and smoothening the surface, revealing the vibrant layer underneath.

Don’t forget to wear sunscreen. While the beach can make you look young, the sun can take your progress away when enjoyed in excess.

4. It Builds and Tones the Muscles
When you surf and swim, you put tension on your bones and activate your muscles, causing them to become stronger. Unlike other sports, surfing is easy on the joints as well, meaning that you won’t develop any issues in your knees and other joints.

Give Surfing a Try!

Surfing is the perfect way to look slim and toned even up to the age of 70! You’ll also train muscles that aren’t normally touched on even by frequent gym users, keeping you fit and strong.

Coasting the waves is wonderful for exercising while enjoying a stunning environment—the best of both worlds! While you’re enjoying yourself, surrounded by the sea and the beach riding the waves, your body is becoming healthier and stronger, making you look and feel younger in the process. Why not give it a try?
