This workout was unlike anything I’ve ever done. I took the intro Surfset class and it was a great to get accustomed to using the surfboard while still providing a good workout. The class was a series of different circuit training moves on the board, which incorporated a lot of balance. We did push-ups, planks, squats and burpees all on the board. In addition, the instructor also added some surf moves such as “swimming” and popping up onto your board. I feel like whenever I go to try surfing for real, this would be a good intro for the feel of being on the board. The class only has room for about 8, and the instructor, Jenna was very attentive.

At first it seemed a little daunting, but once you get the hang of the board and can balance a little better, it wasn’t too hard and I had a ton of fun. Sherman Oaks is a little out of the way for some, but I highly recommend everyone try this!
