The Simple Equation of Surfing Better, With Mark Visser

The Simple Equation of Surfing Better, With Mark Visser
Surfing is, without question, the most difficult sport in the world. 

The act itself is hard enough, then throw in the fickle, ever-changing ocean, other people, and shifting sandbanks, it’s easy to plateau in your learning curve. No matter whether you’ve been surfing all your life, or have only been at it a few months.

Hurley ambassador, Mark Visser, is a world-renowned big wave surfer and all-around waterman, keynote speaker, coach and author, who’s dedicated his working life to understanding the surfing learning process. Then, using that knowledge, Mark’s helped other surfers to keep progressing, with a particular emphasis on finding comfort in the ocean, whether that’s surfing’s elite (Mark’s literally worked with them all), or someone who’s just starting out. Here’s his simple tips to maximise your surfing progression.

Step One - Undetstanding Is Key

“You need to understand that your mind is going to struggle to comprehend new things,” Mark explains. “So what you need to do is limit the amount of brainwave activity that’s going on in your mind.”

Stress stunts progression, so Mark explains that understanding the ingredients of the learning process, and learning the role stress plays in that, is key. Which is what he teaches everyone from Kelly Slater to first timers, aiming to ground them before they even try and catch a wave.

“If you rock up to a new surf spot, or you’re in a competitive environment, then there’s a lot of uncertainties,” Mark explains. “When you’re uncertain about something, you can end up thinking that you don’t have control, which results in an elevated heart rate and high stress. Subsequently leading to poor decisions.”

Step Two - Focus On Your Breathing

“There’s a specific breath technique where you’re just breathing in through your nose that alleviates stress,” Mark explains. “Breathing through the nose activates all five nodes in your lungs and helps you breathe right down to the bottom of your diaphragm, which basically gives you more oxygen in your body, drops your heart rate and your brainwave activity.”

Mark suggests taking your time, whether that’s on the beach, or in the channel as you’re waiting to paddle into the line up.

“I do it all the time, especially coming from the Sunshine Coast (where Mark lives and the surf rarely exceeds four feet) to somewhere like Jaws,” he explains. “Just breathe and allow yourself to see what’s happening, instead of rushing straight into a position that you’re unsure of. I’m ok if that process takes an hour. It’s about letting go of the ego and accepting that it’s ok to re-adjust and learn. The biggest barrier to learning is fear. Everyone is allowed to learn, and whatever that timeline is for you, be cool with it.”

Step Three - Know The Conditions

“It sounds obvious, but make sure you know the forecast,” Mark says. “Information gives you a sense of control, which minimises stress. The less stress, the less brain activity, which is ideal for learning.”

The key to understanding conditions is not assuming that you know, which is a central theme to much of Mark’s teachings, which he garnered from such varied sources as the military, to the world’s best freedivers. 

“Simple things like asking someone who lives or surfs there, ‘Where do you paddle out? Where are you coming in? Does it change at high/low tide?’ are invaluable in giving you more control over your environment,” he says. “Especially in somewhere like Hawaii, where the surf can go from three-to-10ft in a few hours. Being prepared is everything.”

Step Four - A Little Training Goes A Long Way

Mark’s spent years trying to optimise his own training for surfing, and what he’s learned has influenced some of the top surfers competing in the world today. His main findings being that the more surf specific the training, the more beneficial it is. Which is great for everyone who hates the gym.

“I do a lot of paddle training,” Mark says. “When there’s no surf, I get a bigger board and keep my paddles around the two km mark. But I’m working on sprint work and just getting really good at moving quickly through the water. Then the days when it’s on you always feel like you’ve got a turbo booster because you’ve got such a good base fitness. If you can’t get out in the ocean then swimming is amazing, but it can be pretty boring, so that’s why I do ocean or river paddles. At least then you’re outside and can have a look around.”

Professional surfers do hit the gym these days, but Mark says it’s unnecessary for everyday surfers, as your garage and your body weight is all you need. 

“I reckon most of the best inland stuff is what you can do with your own bodyweight,” he says. “Push ups, chin ups, bodyweight squats, just functional movements. I used to be really intense with a lot of the training that I did, and yes I was fit, but I would often ask myself, ‘Am I a better surfer because of that training?’ And I wouldn’t say I was more confident going to new big wave spots because I felt stronger.”

In the end, there’s no substitute for time in the water, but Mark’s extensive learning has taught him that surfing gains are an exercise in working smarter, not harder. And with the few little tweaks above, you can certainly improve your surfing before you put a toe in the ocean.

“I think one of the most important things I learned was come in and rest,” Mark says in parting. “I used to surf for four to eight hours a day when I was growing up, but a lot of those were ‘junk miles’, as the marathon runners would say.”

Measure Yourself

Length: Your wetsuit should land right at the cuff of your wrist and ankles. Too short or too long will contribute to discomfort and the flushing of water.

No Excess Material: Your wetsuit should fit as snug as possible for maximum performance. Any excess material will build up slack, leaving room for water to enter your suit and possible chafing when paddling.

Find Your Size

Use the chart below to determine your size. If you’re on the borderline between two sizes, order the smaller size for a snug, watertight fit. All body types are different – this scale provides an approximate weight and height range to find your appropriate size.
