Elite level surfers

  As professionalism within surfing has attracted increasing sponsorship money, conditioning and decreased injury risk is of a high priority to the individual surfer. The project will endeavour to look at the impact shock on elite/world class level surfers whilst performing aerial manoeuvres and the associated impact from landing these manoeuvres. From the results, it will enable the researchers to develop and individualise appropriate exercises to help in the conditioning and possible prevention of injury to elite/world class surfers at the HPC within surfing Australia.
