ABSTRACT
The article presents a study which investigates the duration adolescent competitive surfers spend free surfing, competing, being coached and spend physically training in terms of strength, balance and conditioning. Weekly and monthly assessment of surf practice/training hours is vital for understanding the loads and surfer endurance. It implies that monitoring athletes' training hours will provide insights based on comparison of weekly surf hours and land-based training.
