Having surfed for well over 50 years I have become a firm believer in getting massages. I hurt a lot.

Surfing every day leaves me with a ton of aches and pains … So I contacted one of the leading therapists in Orange County, Mona Perschon of the Wellness Spa located at the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach, and asked her to write up a few words on the benefits for surfers … ‘Various massage techniques enhance the body’s own recovery process, improving the surfer’s return to high-level performance and reducing the risk of injury.’
