Queres surfar até ao 90? Sabe como... | Want to surf till u 90? Know how...

És daqueles que diz "Vou surfar até morrer!"...? A Surfer publicou um entrevista com Doc Paskowitz que, aos 90, conta o seu segredo para a longevidade.

Are you one of those surfer thar say "I'll surf until I'll die!"...? Surfer published an interview with Doc Paskowitz that, at 90 years old, tell the secret for longevity.

(photo: Aichner)
IN SURFER.com: Unfortunately, there comes a day in every surfer’s life where they throw in the figurative towel, put their boards back in the garage, and bid their adieus to the sport forever. For some, that day accompanies a mortgage, a family, a demanding job, a move to a land-locked location, or a severe injury. For others, like Dorian “Doc” Paskowitz, the only thing to pull them from surfing will be death itself. At an astounding 90 years old, Paskowitz has yet to give up on surfing. Recently, he shed some light on the tricks that have kept him in the water since 1932.

“I can’t really see too well any more, so I have to rely on my sense of sound and feeling when I surf. I can’t stand up anymore either, so I just ride on my knees. I couldn’t get in a wetsuit now, and I damn sure couldn’t get out of one. So at my age, I only surf when I go to Hawaii. I just can’t take the cold water anymore. But when I’m in Hawaii, I’ll surf every day I’m there.”

“Every morning, between 6:30 and 7:00, I walk the beach at Salt Creek. I still feel that same sense of excitement I did when I first started surfing back in 1932. Even though I can’t get in the water in California now because of the cold, I’ll still tell someone about to paddle out to catch a good one for me. But I still feel the excitement.”

“I don’t eat any sugar. I eat a low-fat diet, and I walk, walk, and walk some more. Staying healthy is more than just not being sick. It’s about having vigor in your life. But you have to work for your health. I have five pillars that I stick to: Diet, exercise, rest, recreation, and attitudes of mind. You have to be positive, and you have to do all of those things every day. You have to work for it.”

“In life, you’ve got to move, move, move. It’s hard for death to catch you when you’re running. Death finds you a lot easier when you’re always in bed.”

“When you’re 90, every day is a new ball game. Your body turns into an old car—something is always breaking. One day it’s your knees, another it’s your stomach. That’s why you have to take good care of yourself. A big problem is that people overeat too much for dinner. Just like if you drank too much beer or tequila the night before, you’re gonna wake up the next day with a hangover, only this one is caused by food. Most people have to pull themselves out of bed each morning, and they stop waking up with vigor. If you don’t eat too much for dinner, you’ll feel better the next day.”

Kelly voa alto no US Open | Kelly fly high in the US Open

Podiam ser heats com muito power, mas quando estamos a falar do US Open o que parece contar mesmo é a altura a que se voa!
Kelly Slater pode ter falhado J-Bay, mas à porta de casa, Huntington Beach, voltou a mostrar porque é o 10x campeão mundial e que facilmente recupera qualquer pontuação que tenha deixado para trás.
Numa prova em que os juniores estavam a pegar fogo, Kelly não deu espaço para alguém falar mais alto e, na final contra o australiano Yadin Nicol, levou para casa 100 mil dólares e mais uma série de pontos.
A pontuação foi esmagadora, uma vez que o surfista australiano sabia que precisava de uma grande pontuação para fazer frente ao norte-americano.
Slater foi, uma vez mais, o rei do surf.
---
They might be power surf on the waves, but when you're talking about the US Open what really metters is how high can you fly!
Kelly Slater might failed J-Bay, but, in his backyard, Huntington Beach, he showed once more why he's 10x world champion and that easly he can recover any score.
In an event were the juniors were on fire, Kelly didn't leave any room for others to talk louder and in the final against Yadin Nicol he went home with 100.000 dolars and new points to the ranking.
The final score was overwhelming, since the australian surfer knew he had to have a major score if he wanted to defeat the north-american.
Slater was once more the king of surfing.

O neo-zelandês Ian Buchanan e o australiano Nathan Webster foram os vencedores do Supersurf ASP World Masters, que se realizou na praia do Arpoador, no Rio de Janeiro.

“É uma sensação fantástica”, disse Buchanan. O surfista, actualmente juiz do tour mundial da ASP, foi humilde na sua vitória e reservado quando questionado se voltaria no próximo ano para defender o seu título.

“Espero que no próximo ano eles me convidem para julgar a prova”, afirmou. “Originalmente era isso que eu ia fazer. O Al Hunt e o Richie Porta convenceram-me a surfar e estou contente por ter acedido. Estou satisfeito por ter vencido, mas haverá outros surfistas a qualificarem-se para o ano que vem, e eu adoro julgar. Mas esta vitória é óptima!”

Iain Buchanan (NZL) and Nathan Webster (AUS) emerged victorious today, taking out the Supersurf ASP World Masters at Arpoador, Rio de Janeiro.

 “It’s a pretty awesome feeling,” Buchanan said. Buchanan, who now serves as a full-time judge on the ASP World Tour, was humble in his victory and reserved when considering his plans to return next year to defend his title.

“I’m hoping they’ll ask me to judge (next year),” Buchanan said. “That what I was originally going to do. Al Hunt and Richie Porta talked me into surfing, and I’m glad I did! I’m happy to get the spot I did, but there will be other guys that qualify next year, and I’d love to judge. But this is awesome!”
