Tips Safe Surfing Adventure


Surfing is one of the most popular of water sports in countries with extensive and well-developed beaches. Individuals who love to surf would have gone through proper training first. However, in light of recent events in Australia, where a 41-year-old Japanese surfer died as a result of being attacked by a shark, it is essential that even expert surfers be watchful and follow a few tips for their own safety.

First thing first, do not embark on a surfing adventure unless you know how to swim. It is not just important to know “how” to swim, but also equally important to have developed your stamina for swimming. One should be a well-practiced swimmer, because swimming regularly develops strong muscles. It is necessary to be in full strength when surfing as one is frequently required to swim upon losing balance while surfing (this is very common, especially with beginners). It is advisable not to swim against the current. A tip to prevent neck injuries is not to dive into the water headfirst, but to fall flat and use your outstretched hands to identify any obstructions.

Tips to Play Golf Better


golfThe game is definitely a challenge to play and learn. There are many factors that contribute to lower scores and one of the key elements is learning how to manage the course effectively. The best golfers know their strengths and understand when to be aggressive and when they need to be conservative. The key is to use high percentage shots that you are confident you can execute. Do not try to copy what the pros would do as they have much higher skill levels and they are able to execute tough shots with consistency that the average weekend player would struggle to execute.

Mental game tactics:

One key mental game tip to keep in mind is to develop the ability to have a selective memory. You need to learn to quickly forget the bad shots, learn whatever you can from them and be confident that the next shot will go exactly where you want it to go. It is also important to learn to use a conservative strategy on the course and not try shots that are well beyond your normal abilities. If you find

Story About English Premier League Football

Football in England has a very long and rich history. The domestic football league in England is popularly known as FA Premier League that was founded in 1992. It was the year when twenty-two top-tier English football clubs parted their ways with the football league with an objective to increase their revenues and win competitive edge for success in European competitions. The clubs managed to raise their income by selling TV rights individually to the Football League.

All About Offside Offence in Football

The offside rule is codified in Law 11 as compiled by the association of football. According to the law, a player is in an offside position, if the ball is played or touched by any of his teammates who may not be involved into the play. The law further clarifies that the player will be declared of being in the offline position if any of his body parts, which are allowed to touch the ball, is in the opponent team’s half and gets closer to their goal-line ahead of both the ball and the second-to-last player from the rival’s team (generally, but not necessarily always).

Offside Offence:

It must be noted here that being in an offside position is not considered an offence though such an occurrence is called offside offence and the player is referred to as offender. After a player is spotted in an offside position, the linesman shows the flag and the play is stopped by the match referee. An indirect free-kick is awarded to the defending side from the spot of the player in the offside position. In no way, offside offence is considered misconduct or a foul. The offending player is not sent off the ground

Tips To Catch More Waves

Point One: Surfing is Your Best Surfing Training.

Surfing is a unique sport that challenges our minds and body’s in many diverse ways each time we paddle out. The fact that mother nature doesn’t provide us with a perfect play and practice environment whenever we surf and forces us to battle with wind, wave chops, swell direction, tides, currents, water temperature, flat spells, seasons, and a moving playing field, means that the more time spent in the water (within reason) the better progressions we can make with our surfing skills and abilities.

This fundamentally means that to get better at surfing requires that your base training, be surfing. Paddling out in a variety of surf spots, practicing skills on different boards and learning to read the ocean should be priority in your surfing training. But and this is a very big but, get ready for point two.

Point Two: Strength Training is Very Important

Conditioning with correct land and water based strength movements, exercises and drills can excel a surfers performance, reduce the likelihood of injury, enhance endurance and increase performance consistency every time you surf. This is especially true if you wish to surf well both now and in the future. The

Tricks From Board Up

If you want to exercise to get in shape for surfing start with your feet. The feet help provide shock absorption, balance, force, control, power, flexibility, strength and agility to your ride.

So how do you get started? Most surfers have already done some benefit to your feet by walking barefoot on sand or smooth rocks… not so sure about the coral.

All of the following exercises can be done in bare feet.


Start by rolling a tennis ball under your foot. This helps awaken the soft connective tissue (fascia). Do not put your full weight on the foot being rolled. Work up to using more pressure and using a lacrosse ball or golf ball. Roll the ball with a little more pressure under the heels, balls and outer edge of your feet and less pressure in the arches and toes. Spend at least 1 minute on each foot.

Try to pickup sand/small rocks with your toes. Once you have accomplished this task try to fling the objects with your toes.

Lift your foot off the ground and write in the air your favorite surfing spot. Pretend your toes are a pen and your ankle is a wrist.

With your feet apart keep your heels

Learning Stand Up Paddle Boarding

It was two years ago when I saw for the first time someone surfing in a carefree manner on a thick surfboard.

But the scenario has undergone a lot of changes in so short a time. Many people with their homes near to a lake have come across someone indulging in this sport or have heard about it from someone. A stand up paddle board is the fastest growing water sport in the world. SUP short for “Fully stand up paddling” is another name it is known by these days.

This is not a new sport, as centuries ago the indigenous tribes in French Polynesia were known to have been sitting on logs of wood. In the early 50’s, people who had gone to Hawaii for vacation could spot beach boys rowing around the various islands with long wooden paddles on their surfboards. The present-day ‘fully stand up paddling’ boards are wide, not as heavy as the earlier ones, they move faster, and there is a large variety of colors and designs available.

Today, people across the globe are thoroughly enjoying surfing in water bodies. Now, many countries like Canada, Germany, France, Italia, and Australia organize races and competitions, and people who

– One option to consider if the golf lesson rates

How To Improving Your Golf Swing Speed

Golf swing speed can be calculated without the need for modern technology. If a golfer can determine exactly how far their golf ball traveled prior to landing, they can determine the speed of their swing. For every 2.3 yards traveled, a swing has to generate a speed of 1 mph.

For anyone who is wondering how useful it is to have this knowledge, they should consider that the only way to increase distance is to increase the speed of the swing. Measuring progress requires some kind of metrics by which measurements can be made.

The next logical question is, “How does one increase their golf club swing.” The answer lies within the golfer’s body and positioning. The only way to increase the speed of one’s golf swing is to improve their strength, balance, and coordination.

Improving Strength
A golfer can’t just walk into a gym, start lifting weights and expect to improve their golfing skills. They need to focus on exercises that will improve the strength of the muscles that are most relevant to the golf swing.

There are 22 primary muscles that get used in the typical golf swing. These muscles are located in the shoulders, wrists, lower-back, abdomen area, hips and

Season Games For World Series Baseball

When Baseball started the World Series (WS) in 1903, (prior to that year the games were considered exhibitions) the NFL (1920) and NBA (1946) didn’t even exist. Since their inception, all of these Professional Leagues kept separate statistics for their regular season, inter-league playoff games and Championships. That is, until the granddaddy of them all, decided to lump Playoff stats and WS stats together and call them Postseason stats. Like adding a WS home field advantage to the All-Star Game, baseball has chosen to upgrade Playoff games to the equal of the WS in order to increase their value to TV broadcast networks, to the detriment of the sport.

By MLB actions, many of those members of the Hall of Fame (HOF) that did not have the opportunity to participate in Playoff games will eventually have their WS records relegated to the ash heap of history. During the Playoffs, and WS, TV broadcasters are evidently instructed to refer to all individual stats as Postseason.

For example, during the 2011 Playoffs, TV announcers told us that Jorge Posada of the Yankees had eclipsed a Postseason Yankee team record for Runs Batted In (RBI) previously held by HOF Mickey Mantle. The rub is

These Things Should Stop An Ball Parks

Perhaps it was because the temperature was over ninety degrees that day, and maybe it was the fact that the home town team has the worst record in the league. Whatever the reason for my displeasure, I sat in the bleachers at the Reds game on July 19 and noticed certain trends that bug me as a spectator.

The walk up songs used to perturb me, since I recognized few of them. They were bearable because they only lasted a few seconds, and they were made even shorter when MLB began using a clock between innings.

I grumbled a little when ball parks lengthened the seventh inning stretch by adding “America the Beautiful” to the traditional “Take Me Out To the Ball Game” singalong. As an honor to my country, however, I have learned to accept the song.

Less forgivable are the following intrusions at baseball games, acts that are bound to annoy most of the fans. Here are five phenomena that I have grown tired of regarding baseball games.

Arm Position

The position of the arms is a very important condition to a hitter. You should know that the arms should be away from the body with the elbows almost parallel to the head

The Reason Your Eyes Turn Red After Swimming

Many people have asked me about what causes red eye after swimming in the pool. Most people I have talked to about this topic usually suggest that it is the chlorine in the pool that is causing this issue. Although this is partially true, chlorine is not usually the main cause of this common swimming issue.

To understand how chlorine works in your pool water, it is important to know the difference between free chlorine and combined chlorine. Free chlorine’s main job is to disinfect and sterilize the pool water to prohibit algae growth and keep it free of live organisms that can cause illnesses. Combined chlorine is the chlorine that combines with other elements or compounds in the pool such as oils, sun tan lotions, organic material or other chemicals that have been introduce from a variety of different sources. Combined chlorine is not good at sterilizing or disinfecting the pool, but it is good at creating the strong chlorine smell, drying out your skin and creating red eye after swimming.

Another factor that can cause red eye is the pH of your pool water. The human tear typically ranges from 7.4-7.6. Swimming in water in this pH range is

Ways To Get Started With Handstands

When you want to do a handstand, be certain to focus on your form.

The very first thing you want to do to prepare for all the stuff we are talking about here is wrist preparation.

To do this, put your hands on the floor shoulder width apart and rock your body backwards and forwards. Hold the forward position for a few seconds before moving on the back.

Next, turn your fingers back and do the same thing, but hold the back position instead of the forward position.

And ultimately turn the wrists over and lay the back of your hands on the floor. This might be uncomfortable, but if it is too uncomfortable for you, just simply move your hands closer to your knees.

Next work on the Hollow Body Hold to help you prepare to achieve the handstand.

Lie of the floor. Move your chin to your chest, and keep your shoulders down. Bring your legs off of the ground to hold a 90 degree angle with the rest of your body and also keep your knees at 90 degrees.

Then straighten your legs and slowly lower them back down, and extend your arms.

Start handstands with the Wall In position.

Start doing handstands against a

Why You Should Try Skill Decomposition for Gymnastics Lesson

Skill deconstruction is the process of taking a gymnastics skill and breaking it up into smaller elements. Each gymnastics skill has basic body positions, weight transfers, motions and movements. All of the skills vary in direction of movement, hand and eye placements, flexibility requirements and strength requirements. Even the most basic beginner skill, a forward roll for example, comprises of over 10 different elements.

By doing a skill deconstruction of a gymnastics skill, each element can then be taken as a progression of the skill to lead up to the completed skill. Each of the progressions can be taught in your preferred method. Teaching sequentially or in order of difficulty are the two main ways to instruct the progressions leading up to the successful skill.

In my view, skill deconstruction should be part of everyone’s lesson planning; and here’s why…

1. It allows you more valuable teaching of the skill. You become a more effective teacher if you have progressions reduced into compact elements. When you teach that singular element, you can pinpoint within that one element what they are not doing right. When you correct the problem at the start, one element at a time, it becomes more highly effective
