6 surfing skills and techniques [for beginners]!

Surfing

It's one of those things that every surfer wants to try There are skills and techniques, aren't there? In this article, we'll show you six must-see surfer tricks. It may seem difficult at first glance, but if you're familiar with the basic mechanics, you'll be able to do just that. It's something that anyone can do with practice, so give it a try.   6 Surfing Skills and Techniques These six techniques are introduced in this article. Ups and downs bottom turn Cutback Off-the-rip Aerials Nose riding There are a number of techniques that can be done by beginners. Use it as a reference and challenge yourself.   Upside-down Speeding up and down the slope of a wave. By repeating these moves, you'll get a lot of speed and a great feeling of riding. I often use "upsdown" to speed up the game before I perform a big move. The difficulty level is not so high and it is a basic technique, so even beginners can master it relatively easily. It is a technique that can be used as a connection to the technique If you master it in the beginning, it will be easier to make a big move later on. Bottom Turn "Bottom Turn", as the name implies, is a technique of turning at the bottom of the wave. This is also a basic technique, but it's an interesting technique that makes it easier to create individuality. We're going to slide down to the bottom of the wave and then back into the wave again, so we're going to be able to do that. As with the ups and downs, this is one of the most important techniques that can lead to big moves. The point is how deep and sharp a turn you can make. Depending on the angle of the bottom turn, the look of the next move will be very different. It's a basic but very important bottom turn technique. Shortboarding is a technique that you must master. Cutback Most of you have heard of "cutbacks", haven't you? It's one of the most popular surfing techniques, and it's a technique that everyone has longed to practice at least once. The first thing you need to know about the cutback technique is that it's very simple to understand. ” a technique for returning to the place where you are most in power ”. In surfing, the place where the waves are dug, the place where the break is about to happen, is called the power point. It's basic to control the board on that powerpoint. The cutback was momentum, and when I got away from this powerpoint It's the turn you use to get back to that place. The surfing is how much power point is on the verge of a break It all depends on how well you use it. The trick to the turn is not to do it in the position of your feet when you take off, but rather to do it in the position of your feet when you take off. It is easier to turn if you put your back foot to the tail side. Off the Rip Continuing with the introduction of "Off the Rip" It's the flower of surfing, and it's a great technique to get a high score in competitions. It's a great way to make sure you're getting the most out of your ride. It is a technique that turns 180 degrees by taking advantage of the recoil generated by pushing hard. I had to adjust my board to the timing of the breaking waves The most important thing is the speed before going off-the-rip, so the bottom turn is important. Technique will be required. How fast can you get on the bottom turn ? It's a great skill that depends on how well you can carry your board to the place where the waves break. The spray (splash) when doing off-the-rip is also at the convention. There are a lot of surfers who are particular about it because it comes into play with scoring. The basic technique is the bottom turn. The off-the-rip is kind of a culmination of one. This is a must-have technique for those who want to participate in competitions or become more advanced. Aerial Aerials, a high difficulty super feat It's even more difficult than the off-the-rip, and it's a great move that's sure to get a high score in competitions. It's the same way as the lip, but with speed from the bottom, it goes up at once. In the case of the lip, the turn is made at the tip of the wave, while the aerial is just airborne It's a fancy and cool technique, just like snowboarding. It is one of the most difficult surfing skills and techniques Board control, speed, turn technique, wave reading and all the skills It's only when they fit together that they can succeed. It's the next step in the evolution of the "off-the-lip" look we introduced earlier. It's a very difficult technique to master, but the basic technique system has been improved one by one With repeated practice, it's not impossible. When you master it, you will become an expert and a professional. Nose Riding Nose riding" is not the same as the above five techniques It will be a long border technique. As the name implies, this is a technique where you place your foot on the nose of the board and balance it It is said to be the most difficult technique in longboarding. The "Hang Five" with one foot on the nose and It has a "hang ten" that puts both feet on the nose It's one of the most coveted techniques for longboarders.   Recap Basic techniques such as "bottom turns" and "ups and downs" are available for beginners With practice, you'll be able to do it quickly. From the beginning, techniques like "cut back" and "off the lip" were used. If you practice, you'll never be able to do it, so get the basic techniques right Try it on before you wear it. It's not a dream to be an "aerial" in the future if you have a solid foundation. Let's not give up and keep building up the practice! Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

A must-see for surfing beginners! Basic knowledge and types of wetsuits]

Surfing

One of the most important things to start surfing is a wetsuit In July and August, you can enjoy surfing with a swimsuit or a bikini. If you spend a lot of time in the sea, your body will get cold and you will get sunburned by UV rays. A wetsuit is a must-have to protect yourself There are several types of wetsuits. The best wetsuit for you depends on the time of year and water temperature If you are a beginner, this article will help you choose the right one for you.   Basic knowledge and types of wetsuits There are several different types of wetsuits available What's right for you depends on the time of year. It is broadly divided into the following ・Full suit (can be used all year round) Seagull (spring - fall) Spring (summer) Tupperware (summer) Long John (summer - fall) Semi-dry (winter to spring) Dry suit (winter) If you break it down into smaller pieces, there are other types. It can be broadly categorized like this. Let's take a look at the characteristics of each.   Full Suit This is the most common wetsuit that can be used outside of the surf. The advantage is that the long sleeves and long trousers are integrated and can be used all year round. The full suit is available in 3 mm thick and 3 mm×2 mm Basically all you need is a full 3 mm suit. Unless it's the middle of winter, I think the first wetsuit you buy is a full suit. You'll be using it frequently throughout the year, so make sure you have one.   Seagull Next up is "Seagull". A seagull is a so-called short-sleeved, long pants type wetsuit. The short sleeves make it best for use during the warmer months of spring and fall It is recommended on days when the water temperature is low but the temperature is high. I think the rainy season and early fall will be the main time. If you have a full suit, it's not a must-have The merit of the short-sleeved suit is that it is easier to move than the full suit and easier to put on and take off.   Spring The next step is the "spring". In a short-sleeved, short-pants type wetsuit The main one will be in the summer. In the early hours of summer mornings and on days when the weather isn't as hot as it used to be. In a swimsuit, this is what you use when it's a little chilly.   Tapper The next step is "Tupperware". This is a long-sleeved jacket type, also known as a jacket. Since it's a top half, it's often worn with sea pants or a bikini It is mainly from summer to early fall. Basically, you can wear it with your bathing suit You can layer it over the "long john" that we'll show you next This wetsuit is very easy to use.   Long John This is followed by "Long John". It came out a bit when I was a tupper, but it's the type where the vest and long trousers are in one piece. It's like a sleeveless version of a full suit. It's sleeveless, so it's easy to move around the shoulders and doesn't take a lot of load. Basically, it's used in the summer, but if you layer the tupperware on top of it you can use it. This wetsuit is useful to have because it can be used in spring and fall.   Semi-Dry The next step is "semi-dry". The long sleeves and long trousers make it look like a full suit at first glance. It is made thicker than a full suit, and the lining is brushed, so it keeps you warm. You can see that a full suit is 3 mm thick and a semi-dry suit is 5 mm thick. It's also less prone to water leakage than a full suit, so it's less likely to get into the interior It is safe even in winter. It's a great way to get to know your friends and family. Even in the middle of winter, the temperature and water temperature are relatively high, so semi-dry conditions are not a problem. Otherwise, you may need boots or a cap.   Dry Suits The last thing I will introduce is the "dry suit". It's a wetsuit that you may use in the middle of winter The wetsuit and boots are combined in one piece. It also has volume around the shoulders It is characterized by less water penetration than semi-dry. It just depends on the person It's rickety and hard to move." Once the water gets in, it pools at the boot." There are also negative opinions, such as, "I'm not sure if this is a good idea. Unless you are in a very cold area, a dry suit is not essential. Basically, even in the middle of winter, it's semi-dry and equipped with a glove boot cap I can surf without problems. There are also products that can be applied in gel type to warm the body I recommend it in the middle of winter.   Beginners, all you need are these three! As I mentioned above, there are many different types of wetsuits available It's important to use them in different places and seasons. However, there should also be a person who doesn't know which one to buy because it is too much after all. So, the beginner's must-see "You'll be fine if you have this! It teaches a wetsuit called These three wetsuits are a must buy 1) Full suit 2) Semi-dry 3) Tupperware You can enjoy surfing in basically any season as long as you have a full suit. However, even with a full suit, it is quite cold in the winter months. In such a case, semi-drying is the way to go. You don't need boots or other equipment unless it's extremely cold in the middle of winter. And in the summer months, all you need is one Tupperware and a bathing suit You will be able to enjoy surfing in comfort. With that said, if you're not sure which one to buy , it's a good idea. For now, please hold these three things in check. As I was doing it, I was like, "I want a wetsuit. You'll need more depending on how you feel and what the situation is.   Recap In the beginning, you don't have to make it custom-made They're sold by hanging them on hangers called hangings or hangings. It's okay to buy them in roughly the same size online. However, if you're buying a semi-dry or dry suit To prevent water intrusion and to facilitate movement around the shoulders We recommend that you make them to order. Have a great surfing life!

Surfing Rules & Manners [Basic Surfing Knowledge for Beginners]

Surfing

If you're thinking of taking up surfing and you're looking for a new way to do it. Have you ever heard that there are rules and manners in surfing? To be clear, there are rules and manners in every sport Surfing isn't the only thing special about it. Just to make sure everyone is comfortable and comfortable surfing There are several rules, so if you are a beginner, you should learn them before you go to the beach!   Five basic rules & manners in surfing There are a few rules and manners, but In this article, we'll show you how to make sure you're a beginner and that you're not afraid to do this. Here are the basic rules & manners.   One person in one wave One of the most common rules of surfing we hear about is that it's the one we're most familiar with. I think the rule is "one person in one wave". What I mean by that is, "the person who is closest to the peak and stands first" You will have the priority of that wave. The peak is the point where the wave starts to break. So, even though the person closest to the peak took off first, they were the first to do so. The act of doing the takeoff without regard to the situation is prohibited because it is dangerous. Having said that, the Shonan area (especially the Chigasaki area) is often crowded with people. If you follow the "one person per wave" rule in such a place, you won't be able to ride for the rest of your life. Depending on the point, this rule is not present and There are also points where multiple people ride against one wave. If it's your first time and you don't understand the point, It's a good idea to ask people around you or go to a surf shop for information. There are a lot of gentle people who are willing to help beginners and those who try to play by the rules Don't worry, we won't be indignant.   No drop-in The second rule is the ban on drop-ins. Drop-in, as I mentioned above, is a "front ride". It's very dangerous to enter before someone else is riding ahead of you, so it's prohibited. It's more dangerous than anything else, and you don't like it when it's done to you. If you don't like what is done to you, don't do it as a person before the rules. Take care to make sure everyone is comfortable surfing. If you've been dropped in by any chance you can use the Pull out of the way (out of the way of that wave) right away. If the opponent is advanced, they'll avoid it nicely If you don't think your pullout is going to be ready in time, make a "loud noise". In the "one in one wave" item mentioned in the first, I mentioned that in crowded points like the Shonan area, there are times when more than one person rides Even if you are riding with more than one person, "drop-in" is dangerous, so be careful.   Not disturbing the surfer while riding The third rule is "Do not disturb the surfer while riding". This is also a dangerous thing to do, so let's be careful. So-called ”keep out of the running path of a surfer while riding ” That is to say. When there's a surfer riding a wave from offshore It is dangerous to head offshore to pass in front of that surfer. Make sure to get behind the surfer on the wave before you do. Let's make sure to head out to sea. Also, priority is given to those who ride the wave from the outside (offshore). Don't even try to ride the wave from the inside as if you're trying to get in the way of the person. The priority is "outside".   Please keep the board as close as possible The fourth rule is to keep the board as close as possible. This is more of a cautionary tale than a rule. It doesn't matter if you have a longboard, fanboard or shortboard for surfing It's not just the fins that are attached to the board, but also the points that are pointed if you have a short board There are a lot of dangerous areas when it hits people. Therefore, keep your board as close to your own as possible. If you let go of the board, you'll be a few meters away from it. Even those who have been a little far away can become dangerous. It can be difficult when you're a beginner, but When you pull out (out of that wave) also It would be nice to be able to pull it out with the board if you can. It's not a problem if it's a wide point, but Be especially careful in crowded areas where there are a lot of people.   Cleaning up the ocean The fifth rule is to "keep the ocean clean." It's not so much a rule as it is a manner. Just like baseball players and other athletes clean the ground after practice As a surfer, it is good manners to keep the sea and sandy beach clean. It's a great way to get to know your friends and family. If there is trash on the ground, we pick it up and throw it away. Some surf points have regular "beach cleans"such as It is a good idea to participate in activities to clean the beach and surroundings if you have time. ”I leave cleaner than I came in ” Have fun surfing with this feeling.   Recap Surfing has a few rules and manners We've listed five in total, and all of them are designed to help you avoid danger, and all of them are designed to help you stay safe. I don't think there was anything that was too difficult to do, such as something that people shouldn't do. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

I long for the beautiful body of a surfing girl! Let's get to the secret of that body!

Surfing

When we go to the sea, we often see surfers. It is one of the marine sports that can be enjoyed by both men and women, and is now also seen by many women. By the way, have you ever passed a girl surfer in the ocean and been surprised by her style? Yes, after all, there are a lot of beautiful women who are surfers. In this article, I will introduce the reasons why you can get a beautiful style in this article, whether it is because of the high calorie consumption or because it is suitable for dieting.   How many calories does surfing consume? When we eat, we tend to look at the calories of a product for some reason, don't we? And when I look at it, I worry about whether I'm consuming the calories I'm eating. The amount of calories consumed must be such that the portion eaten is wiped out because it is a big surfing movement, but how is it actually? How many calories does surfing consume? Those who are still new to the game will enjoy it slowly and easily. In this case, the calorie consumption is about 250 to 300 kcal. If it's a number, it doesn't really give you an image. It is said that a 50-minute commute to work or school consumes 220 kcal, so it may be easier to understand if you think that you can consume a little more than a 100-minute commute to work or school. Unlike running, surfing is not a sport where you have to move all the time, and you often don't move for long periods of time while waiting for the waves. If you don't move, you'll burn fewer calories. As you can see, surfing doesn't burn a lot of calories to be honest, but most of the surfers have beautiful styles. The secret lay elsewhere. Surfing gives you an inner body workout! Surfing is basically a sport of keeping your balance on an unsteady footing. From this balancing motion, you can train your inner muscle. Working out your inner muscles improves your basal metabolism, so you can make your body “not skinny now ”but “continually skinny ”and this will give you a beautiful style. I also recommend surfing if you have a complex about your own thick arms, or if you've been carrying a child after childbirth and want to get those arms back! It is also possible to lose weight by using your arms to get to the spot where you are waiting for the wave. It also strengthens the muscles in the chest and abdomen so that you can have a well-balanced and toned body as a whole. By now you know that surfing is a great sport to get your ideal style. If you can get a good style, then maybe it's good for dieting... right? But actually, …I don't know if I can say that.   Is surfing good for your diet? Let's face it, dieting is all about deciding "how much weight I want to lose by when" and working towards that goal. For example, if you do it in surfing, the number of times will inevitably be less than what you do around home, such as running, because you need to go to the sea, and it will be a battle in a short period of time. Even if you plan to do it every weekend, if the weather is not good, the number of times will decrease even more, and even if it is sunny, the amount of exercise will be different depending on the condition of the waves. When it becomes so, I feel that "surfing for the purpose of losing weight" is a little difficult. If anything, the idea of "surfing and getting a beautiful body in the process" would fit better. The challenge can be tough if you don't have some surfing experience, skill and muscle strength, especially if you have a good aerobic workout and have to do it in a place with a big wave current to make a hard movement. Stylish surfers you see in the ocean don't have a body that was created with a little exercise, they have a beautiful body that has been worked out. But there are too many beautiful women who are surfers and they want to change their body shape first but they also want to surf. If you're like that, I recommend "Surf Exercise"! You can do it in the city, so it's very accessible. It can be done indoors, so it is not affected by the weather and waves. Please check it out if you're curious about it.   Recap How did you like it? Of course it's good to start surfing from the beginning, and if you want to change your shape with something close to surfing first, surf exercise is the way to go. Don't be fooled by the fact that you're not actually on the wave or indoors when you say you're on the board! This is an exercise that will strengthen your inner muscles just like surfing. If you change your body shape in an unusual way, you'll be able to create a buzz. We're here to help you get a beautiful body.

What size and shape of body board should I choose?

What size and shape of body board should I choose?

Surfing

There are many tools needed for bodyboarding, but the main one is, as the name suggests, "bodyboarding". Bodyboards come in a variety of shapes and designs, so it's tempting to choose the one you like. However, a body board is not just a board. Of course, it is important to choose the one that suits you in addition to your design preference. What is the key to choosing a body board? When choosing a bodyboard, there are three main things you can't go wrong with: overall length, width and thickness, and purpose. In a word, it is the balance of the whole body in terms of height and weight. Total length of the bodyboard Since the sport of bodyboarding is enjoyed by lying on your back, the overall length is determined by your own height. The total length is expressed in numbers: "Height & times;0.6 = total length of the board" In terms of the position of the body, the total length of the body is exactly from the knees to the mouth. A difference of about 1cm between the front and back is not a problem, but if it is too long, unnecessary buoyancy will occur and the nose, which is the tip of the board, will float easily. The nose is the place to hold the basic posture, so the longer and more buoyant it is, the more difficult it is to hold the nose down during takeoff, and the worse the takeoff will be. This is especially noticeable for people with weak arm strength, such as those who don't normally work out, children, and women. There are other things to be aware of, but especially the overall length. The width and thickness of the bodyboard The width and thickness of the bodyboard will affect the balance of the buoyancy, so you should consult your weight. Just as everyone's body type is different, there is a wide variety of bodyboard widths, and some people are more suitable for different widths. For example, if you think about a skinny person, when you are on a board with a small width, you have to work pretty hard to shift your weight when you are on a board with a large width. On the other hand, if you use a thin board that is chubby or stocky, it may not have the right buoyancy and will sink. It also struggles with shifting weight when maneuvering the board as it is more responsive than before ….   How to enjoy bodyboarding on your own Even if you want to start bodyboarding and buy one, the image you have in your mind is different for each person. Some people might say, "I've been wanting to buy my own bodyboard for the summer and try it at the beach," while others might say, "I'd like to glide gracefully in the waves," and others might want to continue to do it for a long time in earnest. Depending on the purpose, the price of the body board can vary from several thousand yen to tens of thousands of yen. It's a world where there is something to look at, whether you look up or down. [People who want to do a little bit of it] If you have a little bit of gnawing to do, it's not that expensive, and a board within 10,000 yen should be good, even if it's between 1,000 yen and 10,000 yen. At that price, the board is usually made of Styrofoam, so the durability is low, but it is not a problem. At this level, you don't even need to wear fins. However, this is just a case of "people who want to do a little bit of work". The strength of the board can be overpowered by the power of the wave and the weight of the rider, so you should be willing to give up trying to continue to ride this board for a long time. [People who want to ski the waves gracefully This is a person who wants to start bodyboarding in the popular sense. Let's assume that the price of the board you buy is about 20,000 yen. In this price range, polyethylene or stringers are often used for the board, so a certain amount of strength can be expected. Fins are required to use this product. [For those who want to continue in earnest for a longer period of time] If you want to continue to do it seriously, we recommend buying a board that costs about 40,000 yen. The material has changed, many are made of polypropylene, and are reinforced with stringers and carbon mesh, making them very durable. It's the perfect board to enjoy the speed and resilience that bodyboarding is all about. One more point to look at if you want to continue bodyboarding in earnest. That's the outline of the bodyboard. Each body board has its own characteristics according to its shape, which can be roughly divided into “rotational body board”and “speedy and straightforward body board”. It is the outline that makes this difference. When the outline is straight, the body board has more speed. On the other hand, if the curve is strong, it is easy to get to the top due to the good rotation, and it is easy to pull out the rail. You may want to choose whether you want speed or technical support.   Recap How did you like it? If you are a beginner and want to use a good bodyboard for a long time, you can start out with a cheap one and then switch to an expensive one when you get hooked. Shop in the style that suits you best.

How to choose the right size of the surfboard [beginner surfing]!

Surfing

When you hear the word "surfing," you probably think of gliding briskly across the water, making cool turns, and splashing &helliping with gusto. In fact, such an image of surfing is the only one that I can think of. It is mostly done by "shortboarding". There are three main types of surfboards. Longboard Fan board Shortboard So, which board do you recommend if you want to start surfing now? Many surfing-related information sites are referring to the It's a great way to get the most out of your time on the road, but it's also a great way to get the most out of your time on the road. Conclusion! It doesn't matter which one! However, it's hard to know what to choose based on, so we really don't. In this article, we will tell you the advantages and disadvantages of each. ”The most important factors in choosing a board are length and buoyancy. ”   Longboard Longboard with a great sense of stability and easy to start First, the longboard. As the name suggests, it is the longest of the three boards. The length is over 270cm, so the board is wider and floats the most. When you start surfing, the first thing you have to struggle with is the takeoff. The take-off is the process of paddling with the wave until it slides out It's hard to ride a wave well on a board with little buoyancy. But the longboard is already buoyant, so it's not as easy as it sounds. It's easy to take off, even for beginners, and it's also very stable after the board. The advantage is that you can feel the sensation of riding the waves and the fun of surfing.   Disadvantages As I mentioned above, a long board will be a board over 270cm. This means that your PC will be able to quickly and effortlessly adjust to suit your needs. There is a lot of trouble with the administrative side. Also, depending on the size of the car you drive to the ocean, It can't be loaded, so it has to be carried on the roof of the car.   Fun BoardFlexible and popular with beginners Next up is the fanboard. Of the three types of boards, this is the most balanced board in terms of length and buoyancy This board is very popular with beginners. The length is approximately 200 cm or more but less than 270 cm It is somewhere in between a short board and a long board. We all do, but we rarely practice in big waves when we're beginners. First of all, you'll want to learn how to take off and glide in small small waves so you can get a feel for it. You will need "buoyancy" to take off, even in small waves. The best way to do that is with a fanboard. I want a certain amount of buoyancy, but if it's as long as a long board, it gets in the way. I think there are many people who think so. For this reason, it is important to have a well-balanced fanboard with good buoyancy and longevity. It has become popular with beginners.   Disadvantages It's good to start with, but it's getting a little bit more rideable When you want to make a cut or turn or some other fine movement , you can do it. You may feel a lack of substance. Still, I think it's not a loss to have one because the versatility is high.   Short board (excellent agility and coolness) The third one is a shortboard. It's the kind of thing that goes without saying, but when you think of surfing you know what you're talking about. I think the first thing that comes to mind is this shortboard. The main attraction of a shortboard is its agility There are a lot of different techniques for surfing, including detailed movements, and a lot more. A shortboard is a must if you are looking for advanced technique. In terms of size, it is mainly a board of about 160cm to 190cm.   Disadvantages The shortboard is agile, yes, but it's also agile. As a result, it is shorter in length and narrower in width, making it less buoyant. If you have some surfing experience and would like to improve your skills, or if you're just looking for a better way to surf, then this is the place for you. I'd recommend it if you're looking for more variation in your technique, but it's not the best. If you're a beginner and you buy a short board with little buoyancy , you're not going to be able to get it right. I can't ride the wave, "surfing is not fun … You may feel that you're not going to be able to do it.   How to tell the size I've been thinking about buying a surfboard for a while nowand I've been thinking about getting one. Many people don't know how to tell what size to wear or which size is right for them. As we mentioned at the beginning of our article, the most important thing to remember when choosing a surfboard is to make sure that you are getting the best out of it. It's "length" and "buoyancy. First of all, let's talk about "length" It's an unfamiliar number like "5'8"" or "hellip; The length of a surfboard is expressed in feet (FT) and inches (INCH). 1ft=30.48cm 1inch=2.54cm In other words, 5'8" is 5ft (feet) 8inch (inches) Calculating the length, (5×30.48) + (8×2.54) = 172.72cm. If you're considering a longboard or a fanboard, don't worry, it's a good idea. If you're considering a shortboard I would recommend buying a board that is larger than your height to begin with. It's a great way to make sure you're getting the most out of your time. I often judge my "buoyancy" by what percentage of my body weight I am. [guideline] Advanced: 30% to 35% Intermediate vehicles: 40% to 50% Beginners: 50% to 70% It's just a rough guide, so it's just a reference. If you're a beginner, make sure your board is at least 50% of your body weight You can get firm buoyancy and clear takeoff relatively smoothly. For now, as long as the length and buoyancy are kept under control, it will be a good choice. I don't think it's going to be "I can't ride~" or "I can't take off~".   Recap A lot of people who start surfing and quit right awayhave no idea what they're doing. ”Most of the time I don't pick the right board for me ”s. If a beginner weighs 80kg and chooses a board that is only 20L in weight, he will not be able to do so. The lack of buoyancy makes paddling difficult and the board sinks. In the beginning, you can feel the feeling of riding a wave and the fun of surfing Try to choose a board with a little more "length" and "buoyancy". It doesn't matter if you have a cheap board to start with. As you get used to it, work on your board selection.   Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

What is the popular surf exercise

Surfing

Surfing is a famous ocean activity. Many of you may have seen surfers on TV and wanted to try it yourself. You, over there, who are interested! It's not the ocean, but why not ride the waves of the city?   What is Surf Exercise "Surf Exercise" is a new kind of trunk training that you can do indoors, just like surfing. The RipSurfer X is a combination of surfing-specific paddles, push-ups, dolphin-throughs, and takeoffs with trunk-building exercises that are done on a surfboard, just like surfing, except that it comes with a balance ball underneath. This replicates the movement of the actual sea surface, allowing you to train your trunk with balance in precarious situations while on the ground. Even if you are interested in surfing but not confident in swimming, or if you don't like water or saltwater, this is a fun and rewarding exercise.   If a college professor is interested in surf exercise, the effect will be rapid. Although you may think you can recreate the movements of the sea, you may not get much out of this exercise because you are on the ground. What kind of effect can be obtained was verified by professors at the Osaka University of Physical Education Graduate School and Osaka University of Physical Education. The test consisted of comparing the trunk muscle activity of eight adult women who performed lunge, squat, V-shaped abdominal holding, paddling, plank, and side plank on the floor and surfboard, respectively. As a result, the amount of activity around the abdomen (rectus abdominis, transversus abdominis, oblique abdominis) increased by 34.8%, and the amount of activity in the back (lower spinal proprioceptive muscles) increased by 13.5% compared to normal exercise. It's great to see such a difference in the same exercise.   Studio where you can do surf exercises If you are interested in surf exercise, I would recommend "Surf Fit", Japan's first studio specializing in surf exercise, which has been introduced on TBS's "Pitanko Kan Kan" and Abema TV's "Night Out with Voice Actor".

Surfing Women's Rash Guard: The Essential Rash Guard for Summer Sun Protection

Surfing

Summer sea, you definitely don't want a pool tan. In such cases, we recommend rash guards. It has become a common sight in the sea and pools. There are just as many different types of swimsuits and bikinis and they come in many different designs. It's not a bathing suit, it's not a wetsuit. What is a rash guard in the first place? This time, we've summarized it so that newcomers can understand it.   What is the rash guard that surfing girls are wearing? What is a rash guard Originally, it was a surfing term that only surfers could understand. [rash] refers to “premature ”or “abrasions ”or a "rash" or "reddening of the skin. [guard] means “ to guard ” or “ to beware ” or "to protect. When connected, the meaning becomes "protect against abrasions and inflammation", and "rush guard" is what surfers started wearing to protect their skin from injury. These days, rash guards are not only for surfers, but also for putting in water and getting wet. It is an indispensable item for leisure activities and is widely used by women, men and children. What is the material of the rash guard? A rash guard can also be used as an inner wetsuit, it is thin and made of the same material as a swimsuit. It's a quick-drying, stretchy material that feels good on the body. It has been used in places like the sea, surfing and leisure in the summer. Also, it is sometimes worn not only for surfing and swimming, but also to prevent sunburn and body temperature drop. If you don't want to get sunburned and don't want to create blemishes, this is going to be a must-have for surfing girls.   What you can prevent by wearing a rash guard Surfing protects your skin from injuries and external stimulation Rubbing of the skin, such as jellyfish in the sea or boards in the surf, can cause scrapes. A rash guard keeps things from touching your skin directly. In the sea and surfing, the more you've worn, you can spend your time at ease. There are some things that can be prevented just by having one cushion. When you wear it, it prevents your body temperature from dropping Even if you think it's warm, surprisingly, the temperature in the ocean is lower than it actually is. Especially on cold days, your body temperature often drops without you even knowing it. In such a situation, a rash guard prevents the drop in body temperature by not directly touching the water temperature. This is where the quick-drying nature of the rash guard comes into play. It also prevents the body from getting cold when water evaporates. Ultraviolet light is a big enemy! It's also great for sun protection Even if you put sunscreen on your body, you can still get a sunburn, right? You can prevent the condition from being removed by wetting or rubbing against it, which increases the risk of sunburn. Even if you forget to apply it, wearing a rash guard is a relief. Some rash guards have a UV-cutting function. It's a good idea to see if it has UV protection when you choose it. It's a little bit of a line, but it covers your figure Swimsuits inevitably expose a lot of skin. I'm not confident about my body shape, but I want to enjoy the sea and surfing. A rash guard is also useful for such people. Choose a design that doesn't draw attention to the parts of your body that you want to hide the sheer, quick-drying rash guard wear over your swimsuit, and you'll have overall coverage. If you mix and match colors, ruffles, and patterns, you'll naturally cover up your lack of confidence. Other Festivals, hiking and leisure sports They can be used as innerwear for running, walking, baseball and soccer, and in unexpected places, for winter sports (skiing and snowboarding). A rash guard that plays an active role in various places. It doesn't matter how many of them you have, you'll be able to enjoy them in different scenes.   Here's what to look for in a rash guard, UV cut rate There are two types of clothing that have a UV-cutting effect. Those with UV-scattering agents woven into the chemical fiber The ultra-fine particles woven into the liner reflect and scatter UV rays from the outside, preventing them from acting directly on the skin. It is characterized by the fact that the effect does not decrease even after washing. Those with UV-absorbing agents soaked into the fabric The fabric is made from natural fiber and then processed with UV absorbent afterwards. UV absorbers absorb UV rays from the outside, thus preventing them from having a direct effect on the skin. It is recommended for those who have sensitive skin such as cotton, and those who prefer to wear natural materials. It would be helpful to know this when making a choice. The transmittance of ultraviolet rays is indicated as a percentage. A product is certified as "UV-cut effective" if its UV transmission rate is less than half that of a processed product compared to that of an unprocessed UV-cut product. 90%+: Class A high UV protection 80% or more: Class B Standard More than 50%: low C grade UV cut rate will be displayed. It is important to "choose one with a high cut rate" as much as possible. that which is indicated by the UPF UPF is the value that shows how much the effect of UV rays is reduced by the fabric. For example, a product with a UPF of 50 is 1/50 of the effect on bare skin. UPF is indicated in the range of 15 to 50+. The point is to choose the one with the highest value possible.   Recap A rash guard is one of the items that not only protects against UV rays but also makes you happy if you have one for the surf girls who care about their skin. It can be enjoyed with a bathing suit, and it seems to work quite well in other scenes as well. Clothes also have a cut percentage, and choosing a high one will make the sunscreen even more effective and prevent sunburn caused by UV rays. It also has a variety of features and designs. It may be a must-have item to become a sea/surfing girl. It's also an attractive way to cover up the body, which appeals to women. Please use this as a reference when making your purchase. This summer, it's time to buy one of these rash guards.

Surfing Women ♡ A foundation that won't break down even with UV rays in summer

Surfing

Surfing is all about UV rays. It is a great enemy of the surfing girls. UV protection and sun protection, both are important. You can't be out of either one like a surf girl girl surfer. In fact, there are a lot of things to watch out for when it comes to skin damage caused by summer UV rays. UV" → blemishes, wrinkles. Photo-aging" →Not only is the skin exposed to UV rays, but the skin is also subjected to light damage by seeing them. ・"Physical damage such as sweat and sea salt" →removes make-up and imbalances skin conditions and all sorts of damage. Not only now, but some of them will come out more and more later. The damage caused by ultraviolet rays will accumulate. There's nothing better than prevention! It is hard to come off and doesn't crumble when it gets into sweat or seawater. Sunscreen and foundation with your skin in mind. I want to think about how it looks, how it feels and how it affects my skin. I understand how you feel. There are a lot of things to worry about just because it's summer. Best of all, it's different from the usual because it's the sea that reflects UV rays to the fullest. Special care is important. In this article, I have summarized the situation of tanning measures and foundations. A foundation that won't lose to the sea and UV rays Before the foundation Before we get into foundation talk, a little trivia … A foundation to be applied on the surface. But the truth is, did you know that the most important thing before that is to prepare your skin? It's not just foundation that cuts out UV rays. Sunscreen before applying foundation, serum before it, and lotion before it. And when you start talking about packs and cleanses that make it easier for lotion to get in, the best thing for your skin is to take care of it on a daily basis and it's all about taking care of it daily! If your skin is moisturized, it will power up even more and block out UV rays if your skin is in good condition. In the season of going to the sea, it is recommended to take extra care of your skincare routine.   How does tanning happen? Ultraviolet rays that cause sunburn -SPF Reddened by the ultraviolet B wave (sunburn) It's important to be able to extend this time, and it's often indicated as SPF 10-50+. Approximate value About an hour out→SPF 10 to 30 For leisure time, more than 2 hours out→SPF30-50 If you choose this number as a guide, you may want to choose a sunscreen or foundation that is written in SPF 30-50 for surfing. -PA Blackening (immediate hyperpigmentation) when exposed to ultraviolet A waves It's a number for how long it can be stretched out to blacken, ranging from + to +++++. Approximate value PA+:UVA prevention effect PA+:UVA prevention effect PA + + + + : Very effective in preventing UVA PA + + + + + : Very effective in preventing UVA Some sunscreens and foundations are labeled SPF and PA, so let's choose one with these two values in mind. If you surf, you should have a high SPF value and a high PA value.   What I look for in a foundation From here, I'd like to talk about the best part of makeup, the foundation category. Ultraviolet rays popular with surf girls, sea resistant foundation, the foundation you want in the summer sea.   What I look for in a sunscreen/foundation No preservativesNo chemicals. No UV-absorbing agents Water resistant Gentle on the skin It comes off without scrubbing with cleansing Moisturizer This is roughly the basic element that I want. In addition to this, I'm concerned about the feel of the product, its resistance to crumble, UV protection, and retention. We looked into the most popular foundations for the summer sea and surfers. Popular Sunscreens and Foundations NOV UV Shield EX SPF50+ PA++++ Smooth is easy to use, blends easily into the skin and does not leave a white surface. It is water proof and is popular for use without sweat. Fragrance free, color free, hypoallergenic It can be washed off with soap For face and body No UV-absorbing agents I'm glad that it's easy to use even for children and that it has a solid UV protection.   "Covermark Basic Formula" SPF33     PA+++ This is a very popular product that is used by professional surfers around the world. It is very popular because of its high coverage and water resistance without being sticky. It is water-resistant and sweat-proof Protects against UV raysSPF33     PA++ Plant extracts make it more breathable and less burdensome on the skin It covers up blemishes, freckles and dullness A sunscreen foundation that is safe for delicate skin and children.   BRISA MARINA UV Stick EX, SPF50, PA++++ This is the strongest UV stick that professional surfers around the world love to use. Water and sweat resistant, UV cream stick type Moisturizing ingredients No fragrance National standard and maximum water proofing formula. It is the recommended sunscreen for those who never want to burn when surfing.   COCO SUNSHINE, SPF 45, PA++ Stick sunscreen foundation with an enjoyable scent. It has a summery scent of mango and coconut. It's super water-resistant and gentle on the skin Moisturizing ingredients It comes off cleanly after cleansing Water resistant It's pocket-sized so it's easy to carry around. Just because the number is high doesn't mean it's necessarily good, but it's not. It's important to choose the right one for your skin. It was a popular foundation for the surf girls. I hope you'll take a look at it for reference.   How to apply effective sunscreen Only applying sunscreen will not give you the maximum effect. Here, I'll tell you how to paint efficiently. Before applying sunscreen, use a generous amount of lotion and serum to condition the skin Apply it gently and evenly to the skin. 3) Start with the high, sunburn-prone areas of the face Apply the same amount over and over again, the second time is better 5) Apply foundation evenly That's it!   Do you have a makeup remover? It is best to reapply every two to three hours. Sunscreen comes off with water and sweat, so if you are aware of the time and number of times you need to reapply sunscreen, it will be more effective and reduce the burden on your skin. If you want to keep more sunscreen and foundation, you can also add powder or foundation to your sunscreen to make it more resistant to collapse. However, since the reapplication time of the sunscreen seems to be two to three hours, it may be better to have a foundation and sunscreen that is used for both. I want to use something that suits me, think about my skin, and apply it carefully and gently.   Small things to take to the beach with your sunscreen Surf girl's must-have accessories Vaseline Sunscreen Sanitary products Large changing poncho Cap and hat for the sea Hair elastic It's recommended that you put them in a waterproof pouch or bag where they won't get wet.   Recap Speaking of summer, take care of your sunburn! The choice of sunscreen and foundation is as important as leisure. As a woman, you want to take care of yourself in the future, too. If you're too preoccupied with your skin, you won't enjoy it. Take care of your preparations, get along well with the UV rays, and enjoy your summer and surfing to the fullest.

What is the difference between bodyboarding, surfing and wakeboarding?

What is the difference between bodyboarding, surfing and wakeboarding?

Surfing

Bodyboarding, surfing and wakeboarding are three types of activities in the ocean. You may know that the name of the board is to be used, but don't you honestly think that all three of them are the same? In fact, they are totally different. In this article, I will introduce these three activities. When I saw them at sea, I thought, "That's it! It would be great if you could use it as a reference to distinguish between the two.   Bodyboards Bodyboarding is a marine sport invented and developed by Tom Morley. The origin of the development was Tom Morley's desire to "ride waves more easily than surfing". It is a little different from surfing in that you lie down on a small board with your upper body on it and use the weight transfer to ride the waves. Compared to surfing, your eyes are closer to the surface of the water, so the speed of the gliding experience is faster and you feel as if you are one with the waves. One of the biggest differences from surfing is the lack of propulsion of the board itself. In bodyboarding, you turn your hands like a crawler, but you still need to put fins on your feet because they don't provide enough propulsion. The body board is soft because a foam material such as polyethylene and polypropylene is used, and the market price is said to be about 3,000 yen to 100,000 yen. You may want to try and buy one of your own boards.   Surfing Of the three, surfing is probably the most famous. Surfing is the sport of standing on a surfboard and gliding on the waves with good balance. There is no one who does not know that it is what is called a wave rider in the genus, and the person who surfs is called a "surfer". The surfboards used for surfing are large and relevant. There are three types of boards: a board over 9 feet (274.3 cm), which is said to be the largest longboard; a shortboard, which is less than 9 feet; and a funboard, which is placed in between the two. There are advantages and disadvantages of each type of board, but the first one is the longboard for beginners. Long boards are difficult to control due to their size, but the length, width, and thickness of the board create an excellent sense of stability. If you're looking for more intense movement than stability, we recommend a short board with a beautiful sharp shape. Although it takes time to learn how to stand up, the small size of the game allows you to enjoy the exhilaration of tricky and aggressive moves. It is said that the origin of surfing is older than imagined as it is famous, and surfing was around 400 AD. The most plausible theory is that the ancient Polynesians, who lived on the islands of the South Pacific, were skilled navigators and learned to surf on wooden planks on their way home from fishing, using a boat to ride the waves.   Wakeboards Wakeboarding is a slightly different sport from the two where you have to ride the waves on your own, pulled by a motorboat. Grip the handle attached to the rope that extends from the motor board, which pulls you along the water's surface. A similar sport is water skiing, but the only difference between the two is the directional difference between the two classifications: water skiing if your toes are facing forward in the direction to be towed, and wakeboarding if your toes are facing sideways in the opposite direction. However, wakeboarding is loved by many people, especially young people, because it is said that there are more variations of techniques than water skiing, and the number of competitors far exceeded the water skiing population in the 2000s. Since it is a very physically demanding sport, it is said that only professionals can ski for more than 30 minutes at a time, with a typical run time of 15 to 20 minutes per run and 2 to 3 times per day. As long as the board is in the 135-142cm range, there is basically no problem in choosing either one, but the longer board has the advantage of greater buoyancy and stability. However, on the other hand, it is not suitable for women because it requires arm strength, and we recommend 130-135cm size than too long.   Recap How did you like it? It is up to each person to decide which sport to take up, but for women, children, and those who are not comfortable with exercise, we recommend the body board, which is made of soft material so that even if you accidentally hit yourself or others, you are less likely to have a big accident and less damage even if you fall off the waves. If you want to try surfing or wakeboarding, put your feet up on the length of the board. We are here to support your comfortable marine life.

Tokyo Olympics postponed to 2021, Japanese national surfers concerned about?

Surfing

Selected as an additional event for the Tokyo Olympics! The Tokyo Olympics, which was scheduled to be held in 2020, has been postponed due to the coronavirus. I was looking forward to surfing, which was newly adopted as an additional discipline from the Tokyo 2020 Games! I'm sure there are many surfers out there who are disappointed with this. For now, the Tokyo Olympics are scheduled to be held from July 23, 2021, so let's wait in anticipation while learning more about the surfing national team. Here, we introduce the Japanese representative for the Tokyo Olympics surfing competition.   Where will the Tokyo Olympics surfing competition take place? The stadium and other facilities are being built to accommodate the various events that will take place at the Tokyo Olympics. It has been built at a rapid pace. Most of them are located in Tokyo, but there are no surfing venues in the city. Because of the characteristics of the competition, it is difficult to perform surfing in artificial facilities, so it is necessary to perform in the sea where there are natural waves. Therefore, the competition venue must be a beach with a sandy beach, but "Tsurigasaki Beach" was chosen for the Tokyo Olympics this time. Tsurigasaki Kaigan is located at the southernmost point of Kujukurihama Beach in Chiba Prefecture and is commonly called Shidashita Point. Tsurigasaki Beach is famous for the world's best waves and is also called as "Wave Riding Dojo" among surfing enthusiasts. There are shower facilities and eco-friendly toilets at Tsurigasaki Beach, so it is the best environment as a surfing spot.   Nickname of the Japanese national team Competitors in international competitions such as the Olympics are given unique nicknames, such as Nadeshiko Japan in women's soccer or Samurai Japan in baseball. This is no exception to surfing. The Japanese representative of surfing is nicknamed "NAMINORI JAPAN".   How to qualify for surfing at the Tokyo Olympics? Each event and Olympic Games has its own qualifications and quota. In the case of surfing, Shortboards for both men and women Contestant slots  There will be 19 spots for both men and women (38 in total)  Japan will be the host country with one male and one female participant each for a total of two participants  The maximum number of participants for each country is four, with a maximum of two for both men and women In addition, the top rankings in the qualifying selection events qualify for the Olympics. For this reason, no longboarder will be selected to represent Japan at the Tokyo Olympics.   Two athletes selected to compete in the Tokyo Olympics The second Japan Open and ISA World Surfing Games were scheduled to be held in April-May 2020 to select athletes for the Tokyo Olympics, but the coronavirus has postponed the event and no official decision has yet been made on who will represent Japan. However, there is only one athlete who has been selected to compete in the Tokyo Olympics at this stage. That was Kanoa Igarashi in the men's team. Kanoa Igarashi Kanoa Igarashi, who is also known as the doyen of the surfing world, was born in California, USA, although his parents are Japanese. His parents were both professional surfers, and he grew up in a genuine surfing family that moved to Hawaii to surf. The name "Kanoa" means "freedom" in the Hawaiian language. Igarashi started surfing at the age of 3 under the influence of his parents, won his first competition when he was 6 years old, and was the youngest member of the American team when he was 9 years old. He went on to become a professional surfer with a string of illustrious achievements. He currently has a sponsorship agreement with an American surfing and snowboarding brand called QUIKSILVER, and will be a Hawaii State Tourism Goodwill Ambassador on February 18, 2020.   Featured athletes for the Tokyo Olympics With the exception of Kanoa Igarashi, no other players have been nominated for the national team yet, but there are several players who are regarded as the favorites. One of the top prospects for the men's race is 2019 ISA WSG Asia No. 1, Sun Murakami. On the women's side, 2019 ISA WSG Asia No. 1 Sino Matsuda is seen as the leading candidate. Shun Murakami He was born in Yugawara, Kanagawa Prefecture in 1997. Influenced by his father, he started surfing in the second grade of elementary school and started competing in contests when he was 10 years old, winning the Men's Open class at the 2011 All Japan Surfing Grand Championship Games in junior high school. As a professional surfer, he also signed a contract with wetsuit brand BEWET and went on to represent Japan in the finals of the ISA World Surfing Games for two years in a row. He has now won one of the Asian slots for the Tokyo Olympics, albeit provisionally.   Official site https://shun-murakami.com/ He was born in 2002 in Chigasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture, which is a popular surfing spot. I started surfing at the age of 6, influenced by my parents who were longboarders. In sixth grade of elementary school, he obtained the Japan Surfing Federation's official shortboard certification (Level 1), and in second grade of junior high school, he obtained the Japan Professional Surfing Federation's official professional certification. Since then, she has won a number of competitions and won a silver medal in the women's U-16 at the 2018 World Junior Surfing Championships, became the inaugural Japan Open Queen at the inaugural Japan Open of Surfing in 2019, and at the ISA World Surfing Games in 2019, she finished 15th, the highest ranking Asian athlete, and is almost certain to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics.   Official site http://shino.surf/

Surfing Women ♡ How to make the best makeup for the summer sea

Surfing

Whether you're surfing or in the ocean, you want to wear not only your base makeup but also your point makeup! For those surfing girls, makeup that won't lose to the sea or UV rays. We've gathered information on point makeup that doesn't collapse. There are many types of point makeup, and many people don't know which one to choose. Surf Girl Point MakeupSurf Girl Women's point makeup problems The eyebrow comes off. The mascara has fallen off and turned black. The color is gone. The make-up is worn out. It's hard to reapply makeup. There are a variety of problems such as Sea = water resistant makeup is the basics. When it comes to water resistance, it's an oil-based one. It's a good idea to choose something that is said to be water proof. However, depending on the compatibility, it can be counterproductive. Choose a point makeup that suits your skin and birth makeup.   Ocean and water-resistant make-up products that are great for surf girls Waterproof cosmetics Water proof means "water resistant". Water resistance means it contains water-repellent components (silicon components). By putting silicone in the makeup, it is less likely to mix with water and sweat, and as a result, the makeup is less likely to fall apart. Water resistance is a term we hear a lot, but why is silicone used? Silicon has water-repelling properties. The surface of the silicone is smooth. It has a glossy appearance. The silicone in it creates a water-resistant makeup film, so it's used in combination with other oil ingredients. Silicones in cosmetics and water proofs can be methycone, dimethicone, cyclomethicone, siloxane, silanol, etc. If your cosmetics contain silicone , you may not be able to use them. There are foundations, sunscreen, mascara, eyeshadow, and eyeliner. In addition to cosmetics, we also use them in shampoos, conditioners, hair serums, etc. There was a time when it was said that non-silicone was better. Some products do not contain silicone, which may result in less water resistance or more hair loss. Surfing Women's Recommended Makeup Basic makeup shapes There are three types of shapes. (1) Powder type & rarr; Since the powder is pressed, it extends fluffily. (2) Liquid type & rarr; liquid type, easy to extend on the skin. (3) Cream type & rarr; cream type with high adhesion. In addition, the gel type of eyeliner (harder than the liquid). For eyebrows and lips, there are also items that have a shape +α function, such as tints (those that set the color on the skin). For sea surf girl makeup, water resistant and water proof makeup, cream and tint are popular. Let's take a closer look at it.   Eyebrow: Point makeup for women surfing A brow tint that won't go away If you want an easy, water-resistant eyebrow, it's a good idea to add color to your eyebrows.

Powerful Stay Eyebrow Pencil (1400 yen, excluding tax) Waterproof for long-lasting coverage. Not only is it sweat-water resistant, but it's easy to draw. You can also apply an eyebrow coating to your usual eyebrows to maintain your usual look. Eyebrows are the second most important thing after the base, aren't they? If you have eyebrows, the forehead of the face is firm, so base makeup and eyebrows, you want to be neat without dropping. Eyebrow coating for women surfing Eyebrow coat that won't disappear or disappear I wrote my eyebrows, but they're gone. In such a case, use a brow coat. It further protects the eyebrow from abrasion, water, sweat and sebum. The more you coat it, the harder it will come off. Introducing the popular brow coat. Cézanne Eyebrow Coat N (460 yen, excluding tax) It is resistant to sweat, water, sebum and rubbing, and will keep your eyebrow makeup in place. Dries quickly and has a natural, non-shiny finish.

It's water resistant and perfect for those times when you just want to keep your eyebrow make-up Eyeliner: Point makeup for women surfing I don't even want to take off my eyeliner Some people pull eyeliner and some people don't, so we looked into which liners are water resistant. You want to be careful about the amount so that you don't become a panda. It's the area around the eyes, so it's better to be more discreet than usual Integrate Super Keep Liquid Liner (1,045 yen incl. tax) A liquid liner that allows you to draw delicate or sharp lines at will. Even though it's water proof, it can be removed with normal cleansing and cleansing agents. Can Make Creamy Touch Liner (650 yen, excluding tax) This gel eyeliner adheres well when it dries and is water resistant. The clean lines will last a long time. It is easy to draw because it is thin.

Eye Shadows: Recommended Makeup for Women Surfing On the eyes, even the eyeshadow is no slouch For eyeshadows, it is recommended to bring a water proof color with good color. In particular, it is said that water-proof pencils and crayon types have high adhesion and are difficult to fall off. Ma Couleur Crayon Eyeshadow (1,650 yen incl. tax) A crayon eyeshadow with good adhesion and color development. Waterproof and long-lasting color retention. It is soft and easy to write on, and can be used as an eyeliner if you draw it on the crease of the eye Visee Viscé Richet Crayon Eye Color (1200 yen, excluding tax) Water Proof. An eye color with good adhesion and color development. It can be used as a shadow or as an eye line. Mascara: The best mascara for women surfing I want to wear mascara well I also want to wear mascara. False eyelashes and eyelash extensions are also good, but if you're thinking of using mascara, Rimmel is recommended. Rimmel Storm-Proof MascaraThe Rimmel Storm-Proof Mascara It is so water resistant that it won't bleed even if it is hit by heavy rain! You can surf and get caught in the waves, too. If it's water proof and can stand up to heavy rain, this is the one to go with it.   Blush & Lips for surfing girls Use the same blush and lipstick for a quicker look Cheeks tend to get sunburned easily, so it blends in without interfering with your makeup routine. You can put a lip tint on your blush. Some colors last a few days without any repainting. It's close to the gel type & rarr;liquid type, but it has a shiny feeling. Stick type→Stick type is easy to apply and use. Among the three types of lip tint, I recommend the liquid type lip tint if you apply it to the sea and surfing. It doesn't fade easily and helps to prevent blood loss. You can reapply, so even if your shadow or blush has fallen off, you'll want to have at least one lip that you can easily reapply. You can also use it with UV-protected lip balm to protect your lips from UV rays.

Voluntary restraint on surfing due to the new Corona will have an impact on GW

Surfing

The state of emergency has been declared with the slogan "stay home" all over the country, and the temperature difference in each municipality is beginning to appear, but the surfing industry has also been greatly affected, and event organizers such as the NSA have announced the cancellation of official competitions and examinations, and the mode of self-restraint is increasing. In Chiba and Miyazaki prefectures, where popular surfing spots are gathered, a state of emergency has been declared and measures are being taken, such as closing parking lots. In addition, more and more people are visiting the seaside and enjoying outdoor sports to relieve the lack of exercise, avoiding the three densities (dense, closed, and close) that are said to increase the risk of infection. The need to reduce contact with people by 80% has been constantly called for in order to prevent clusters, but in some suburban areas, people are leading the same life as before due to the fact that there are few people and no densities and no infected people around. While local governments and surfing-related organizations are taking various measures to prevent the spread of infection, it will be very important for each and every surfer to act morally in order to avoid a long life of self-restraint.   What's new April 22 Japan Surfing Federation "Dear All Surfers," Japan Federation calls for "Be sure to follow the bans."

Recommended outfits and supplies for Sup yoga beginners!

Surfing

SUP Yoga is a popular form of yoga performed while floating on the water. Many people are fascinated by the satisfaction of being one with the waves, and the benefits surpass those of regular yoga for both fitness and relaxation. What you need to prepare for SUP Yoga is a little different from what you need to do on the ground because of the various poses and the possibility of getting wet. Therefore, some of you may not know what kind of supplies and clothes to wear. In this article, I will introduce the clothes and supplies that I would like all girls who want to start SUP yoga to have! I hope you find it helpful.   Main Outfits for SUP Yoga Since it's on the water, doesn't it have to be a bathing suit? Can't you do it without yoga wear? Some of you may have such concerns. If you've been holding back on your feet because of your aversion to taut clothing and swimwear, don't worry. It doesn't have to be that way. When you do SUP yoga, you should basically wear clothes that can get wet and a jumper to prevent sunburn. So, for example, you can wear your regular swimsuit with a tank top or shorts over it for yoga, or you can wear a camisole or shorts over your top for easy movement. We also recommend wearing a rash guard or a thin hoodie with UV protection if you are concerned about sunburn or want to hide your body line. Another option is to utilize yoga leggings if you already have yoga wear or want to cover your legs with long pants. If you have them, there is no additional cost, and even if you don't have them, you can wear leggings for further UV protection. You'll look like an accomplished SUP yoga girl when paired with a yoga wear short top!   What to Wear to Avoid at SUP Yoga SUP Yoga has a wide range of clothes to choose from, as long as they are comfortable with getting wet, but there are some yoga wears in circulation that should be avoided. It's draped yoga wear. Drape is the folds of fabric found in fashionable clothes. Many of them are thick, so the more draped they are, the heavier they will become in the event of an emergency. If it becomes difficult to get up on the land or the board when you have fallen into the water, it is embarrassing, and if you feel uncomfortable or hard to move afterwards, you will ruin your time. Try to choose clothes made of materials and designs that won't be a burden even if you get in the water.   Basic Supplies for SUP Yoga SUP Yoga requires a little more equipment than regular yoga, but some of it is available for rent at some locations. Basic SUP Yoga Supplies (available for rent) Stand-up paddleboard Paddle Wetsuit Life jackets If these are purchased by yourself, the width of enjoyment increases, such as the pattern of the board being stylishly elaborated, but honestly, it is not cheap when it comes to the actual purchase. It's also a good idea to start with a rental, and then set it up one at a time. It is recommended that you do your research in advance to find out if it is available for rent. In addition, other items that you may want to prepare for yourself include the following. Change of clothes Bath towels Flip flops Sober up (↓ for outdoor) Sunscreen, sunglasses and hats After you get out of the water, your body temperature tends to be taken away, and you may catch a cold if you leave it for a long time. Wipe your body thoroughly with a bath towel prepared in advance and change immediately. You may imagine that flip flops are needed outdoors to protect your feet from sharp objects or to prevent burns from sand, but in fact, flip flops are also needed indoors depending on the location. It might be good to have a pair of these for any occasion. And what we tend to forget is the sickness remedy. They spend a lot of time on the board, which can make you feel uncomfortable. It may not be necessary for those who are resistant to shaking, but if you are prone to motion sickness, it is recommended that you carry it.   Recap How did you like it? It's inevitable that collecting supplies will cost you money when you start something. Especially when it is bought in a shop, it is a little expensive because there are many good things, and in addition, there are many things that are covered with other people because everyone is buying in the same place. The person who wants to make an individuality and the person who wants to buy it as cheaply as possible. At first, you may need to be courageous, "I wonder if it's okay," but by all means, please try to make use of Yahoo shopping and Amazon. You may find cute clothes and supplies at a lower price than buying them in a shop.

What is 'sap yoga', a fitness program that is definitely recommended for sea lovers?

Surfing

Yoga has become a popular form of fitness for both men and women. There are many people who do it at home or in a studio because it is good for the body and has various effects such as regulating the body's environment and autonomic nerves, relieving chronic symptoms such as stiff shoulders, and getting in shape. The main thing is that you can do yoga anywhere if you are on your own. Don't you want to do it where you want to do it? For example, how about an ocean, a swimming pool, or a resort? In this issue, we will introduce Sapp Yoga, which is yoga on the water. I hope you find it helpful in your yoga life.   What is Sup yoga? It's hard to imagine what the word "SUP" in SUP Yoga means in the first place, isn't it? SUP stands for Stand Up Paddle Board. It's a marine activity that originated in Hawaii, and it's also a popular exercise in the United States, which is famous as a fitness powerhouse. The reason for its popularity is that you can experience the benefits of both fitness and relaxation. It is often seen as a hands-on plan at resorts, and the number of places where you can try it out, such as gym pools, has been increasing in recent years, and the Japan Sapp Yoga Association was established in Japan in 2014.   What are the main benefits of Sup yoga? SUP Yoga, as its official name suggests, is a yoga practice that involves riding on a large, buoyant surfboard called a stand-up paddleboard and floating on top of it. Not only can you get great fitness benefits from common yoga poses, but there are also many other benefits that are unique to water that are not found on the ground. Build your entire body's muscles and trunk The instability that cannot be felt on the ground can only be experienced in SUP Yoga on a rocking boat, which allows you to train the inner muscles of your body with a proper awareness of your trunk. If you stand up on the board, you try to balance yourself so that you don't fall. It's great to be able to work out your internal muscles, hamstrings, glutes, and even fine muscles that are hard to use on land. Improve your sense of balance and concentration On the water, unlike on the ground, even a slight change of posture can cause an unexpected movement. Posing on unsteady waves requires extraordinary concentration and balance. Therefore, even just working on the basic poses found in regular yoga, SUP Yoga will help you to develop your balance and concentration even more than usual. Acquisition of Relaxation Effect As you get used to posing on the board to some extent, it becomes fun to rock with the waves. Having fun is the most important thing in de-stressing. It's a bit more difficult when you're in a resort, but you can get the best out of your local gym or pool.   Three points of Sup yoga There are three main points to consider when doing SUP yoga. The first is to move and breathe slowly. A big shake can lead to an unexpected failure, such as falling down. Move more slowly than you usually do on the ground, and breathe more slowly to match your movements. The second thing is to be aware of the steering wheel. The handle is located at the top of the board and is the center of balance for SUP yoga practice. If you are aware that you are in the center here, the target object will be easier to balance than a paddle. And finally, the third thing is to look at the right position. In fact, it is said that the main reason why people lose their balance on the board is due to their eyesight. If you lower your gaze, your head may fall down before you know it and you may lose your balance. This is not only true for SUP yoga, but also for horseback riding. Learning to fix your gaze in the right position is one step that can be used in many different places.   Introduction to the basic poses of Sup yoga Basically, SUP yoga poses are performed with an awareness of the position of the handle, which is the center of the board's balance. In this article, I will show you how to do this pose, which is the basic pose of SUP yoga, "Yasuraza Pose". How to Do Ease Pose 3 Steps ① Face the front of the board and sit on the handle. Put your hands on your knees and straighten your back firmly. Repeat deep and slow abdominal breathing while feeling the waves under the boat.   Recap How about SUP Yoga, I would definitely recommend it to those who love the ocean and water, and those who want to experience yoga that is different from other people. However, some of you may not know how to get started. Check out the Japan Sop Yoga Association's website for a variety of events and lessons. I'm sure you'll find something to suit you!

Surfing girls♡ What a bikini girl looks for in a swimsuit

Surfing

Girls who are about to start surfing. Girls who have already started. Bikinis and swimsuits "bother me~" every year Whether you're a beginner or not. We've put together a list of things that even girls who don't know anything about swimsuits, bikinis, the ocean or surfing can understand. The truth about bikinis you're interested in! The first thing to look for is "functionality", "peace of mind" and "design" The image of surfing is that it is an active sport. It's the same with other sports, but it's important not to get in the way of your movements when you're riding the wave! And a sense of security. Especially girls want to avoid polish-ups on various parts of their body. I want "functionality" and "peace of mind". If you want to know more, you need to wear a "cute bikini" rather than a bodysuit that is guarded by a bodyguard If you don't want to show off your skin, the bodysuit is safe. I want to make sure to aim for "design" as well. If you are looking for the best bikini♡, you will surely find this information useful! First of all, why are bikinis so popular? That's why I'm so concerned about the popular Hawaii, which has reheated in the 20th century. Popular! In Hawaii, a surf girl goes surfing in a bikini. Hawaii's surf girls have become the darling of Japanese girls. I want to ride the waves in a bikini like a Hawaiian surf girl! I want to play in a cute swimsuit. But they also have functionality, peace of mind, and design! The girls who ride the waves are picky about it♡ What kind of bikinis are there? Is it different from the usual? There are three main types of swimsuits and bikinis.   ① "For swimming competition" The design of this swimsuit emphasizes the importance of being able to move as quickly as possible without worrying about the resistance of the water, and this swimsuit emphasizes ease of movement rather than design. ②"For leisure use" It's something that looks good, has a cute design, and is cool. This is a fashion-forward swimsuit for play, with basic functionality and design to match. ③"For surfing" One that can handle active movement. We focus on functionality, such as the type of fabric, sewing, and how well it dries after it goes on land. In addition, there are no worries about stains, tears, or the string coming off. It's made with a sense of security. What's more, they range from cute to sexy. What's the key to choosing a swimsuit for surfing? As a woman, you want to have a good balance of functionality, security, and design. The first part of the "functionality" we are concerned about is the stretchiness of the fabric. Because of the active movement, the most important thing may be the fit and the fabric and the comfort of the garment that matches the movement. It doesn't shift, it doesn't see, it doesn't come off! If the fabric is stretchy and fits well, a sense of security is inevitably created, isn't it? We don't want to worry about unnecessary worries because we want to ride the waves with all our might. A swimsuit with these two things in mind may be the most important thing for surfing. I want to enjoy surfing and playing! You can't miss the design of the swimsuit and bikini. He doesn't want to take it off. And yet, I want a swimsuit or bikini that shows off my style. You want a design that expresses you, that makes your skin look bigger, that keeps you active and moving, so you want to stick to the specials. Swimwear and bikinis for women surfing A swimsuit that will give you three things you want We've picked out some of the most popular online and mail order stores that offer the three things you want: functionality, peace of mind, and design.   Standard "ROXY" 1990 California born surf brand ROXY The bikini top and bottom are simple, but not too flashy, and you'll love it for its healthy look for all ages!

This is an earth-friendly fabric with outstanding stretch and fit, sewing and recycling. When it gets wet, the swimsuit adheres to the skin tightly to prevent it from slipping! Even if the strap is untied, the cups remain attached to the chest! The bottom is also lined in the same way, so you don't have to worry about the lifting of your hips. The design is not too retro, not too flashy, not too simple, and the colors can be worn at any age. BILLABONG" that can be arranged Billabong was born in 1973 on the Gold Coast, one of Australia's premier surf spots. It is a popular surf apparel brand that develops the collaboration line with a famous artist and the musician, etc. now though it is a brand that started from making the board shorts of the handmade. Billabong recommends the Get in Line one-shoulder reversible bikini, which can be worn in many ways. It can be worn off the shoulder or on one shoulder to change the look and feel easy, and the reversible bottoms make it a great value!   "Rip Curl" is not just a bikini One of the leading surf brands in Australia, born in 1969. Rip Curl's swimwear is guaranteed to hold up well to bikini surfers. Of course we recommend bikinis, but this year, how about a one-piece type for a different mood? Even though it's a dress, the bold lace-up back allows you to wear it healthy while still looking sexy.   "VOLCOM" for those who like unique designs I recommend it because it has many unique designs. You can move around without worrying about it because it has a covering power, and it has a sporty impression. This collage design with a volcom's edge is really cool! Types of sweat suits A suit that you can wear from the change of seasons Full Suit This is the most common wetsuit. It's called a full suit because it's a wetsuit that covers your entire body from your wrists to your ankles.  Duration of use: can be used all year round Seagull This wetsuit is recommended for the warm season because of its short sleeves and long pants. You can also enjoy coordinating it with tappers (jackets). Layering the tupperware increases the heat retention capacity.  Period of use: spring to fall Spring (Shorty) A short-sleeved and short pants type wetsuit is recommended for both warm water and outdoor temperatures. Many of them are made of 2mm thin wet fabric, which makes it easy to change clothes and move around. Period of use: summer   Recap This year I want to be a little more particular about swimwear and bikinis. For girls who surf, it's the closest thing to your skin, even if it's a board. The clothes in the sea and sandy beach are swimwear and bikinis. I was surprised to see that there are so many different kinds of products. It's not a normal swimsuit/bikini ♡ Even though I don't go to the beach very often, I felt like I wanted to choose a swimsuit for my everyday life. What a surfing girl's swimsuit or bikini needs for the day. It's about functionality, peace of mind, and design. Surfing is not a leisure activity, but a sport, and it's a different kind of summer! Sea! It looks like a sandy beach experience.
