Big Waves, Big Appetite

Surfer Nutrition 

During the Holidays, food is often on the mind. While it is always nice to indulge in a sweet treat from time to time it’s also important to stay healthy especially when paddling out to catch winter waves. In order to achieve optimal performance in the water, make sure you’re eating clean. Here are some of San Diego Surf School’s favorite foods that keep us healthy and energized so we can continue to enjoy doing what we love!

Stay Hydrated!

The most important thing that you should be putting in your body is water. It’s so important to stay hydrated when you’re a surfer because of the amount of energy it takes to be out in the waves. 







Healthy Fats 


Chia Seeds

Peanut butter

Other nut butters



Whole Grain Couscous 

Whole wheat bread 


Whole wheat flour pasta 

Fruits and Veggies

You can’t go wrong in this department. Just make sure you are eating the right amount of servings of fruits and to get your daily dose of natural vitamins and nutrients. 

No matter if you have surfed once, or every morning, it’s clear that surfing is a demanding sport on the body.  If you want the most out of your body in the water, provide yourself the right energy and START EATING REAL FOOD.  Proteins, vegetables, fruits, and some grains!
