Forget complex weight loss programs, personal trainers, and magical pills. Surfing is the best and most efficient weapon against obesity.
Surfing helps you stay fit. Not only because it burns fat, but also because it naturally induces a lifestyle based on a rich and tasteful diet that increases water drinking and proteins, and reduces fats, carbs, and sugar.
Soda drinks and fast food, for example, are some of your worst enemies, even when sold as zero calories products.

On January 8, 2018, California state legislators, Al Muratsuchi and Ian Calderon introduced a bill that aims to establish surfing as California's official sport.
If recognized and approved, it will be the second time surfing is adopted as official state sport, after being designated in Hawaii in 1998. Interestingly, Hawaii opted for having two formal state sports - an individual sport (surfing) and a team sport (outrigger canoe paddling).
Assemblymembers Muratsuchi and Calderon are both passionate surfers and believe surfing represents the spirit of the California dream.
