Yoga and Pilates

Yoga and Pilates are great ways to keep your body, mind, and soul sharp until the next time you get in the water. Many of professional water women and men like Kelly Slater (nine times surf champion), Kristine Boese, (nine times kiteboarding champion), and Larid Hamilton (a big wave surf legend) have found yoga and Pilates to be one of the key preparation tools for their watersport careers.
