#Surfing - Irish sports website The42 has turned its spotlight on young Irish big wave rider Conor Maguire, who’s beginning to make a big impact abroad as he works on an upcoming three-part documentary on surfing in Ireland.
Currently prepping for La Vaca Gigante in Santander, Spain — with two more months to go in the waiting period for the right conditions to arise — Maguire tells The42 about his training regimen, much of which involves underwater exercises to emerge from those all-too-common wipeouts unscathed.
Something else that’s key to the 24-year-old’s routine, and may not be the first thing that comes to mind with such thrill-seeking extreme sports like big wave surfing, is yoga.
“[While] it helps with making your body limber, there are other benefits as well,” says the Bundoran resident. “It allows me to stay calm quite and, in general it’s definitely something all surfers could benefit from.”
