Kneeling Lunge with a Twist

Using your core in every movement on the board is critical and this particular exercise reminds you to engage the core as you rotate to each side. This exercise also trains your body to become more efficient at coming up and down on the board.

1. Start with your feet hip distance apart, holding your paddle in both hands horizontally.
