Ian Walsh Ep 4
Learn 3-min Breath Holds In 1-day
Many surfers today pride themselves on a training regime that includes drinking beers, piling out on the couch, and going to concerts. When you charge waves as gnarly as the ones that Ian Walsh does, this could be a kiss of death. Don`t get it twisted, Ian likes to have a good time more so than most (as was evident from his interview in LATER. Issue One), but when it comes to surfing he takes it seriously. His workouts make running on the ocean bottom with rocks look like a joy ride.
Check it out.

In this episode of "The Ian Walsh Experience," Ian undergoes training to improve his lung capacity and peace of mind when he wipes out on huge waves. With the help of specialized trainers, he increases his breath holds to over 3 minutes in just one day."
