Movement on surf are very complex: each time your body moves, there are tens of thousands of neurons sending electrical signals. Whether you're training cutbacks, bottom turns or generate speed on a surfskate or surf board, your brain needs to refine how it tells your muscles to make the complex movements required. The brain's unique ability to fine-tune itself—called plasticity—allows it to do just that.

Plasticity means your brain can strengthen existing connections between neurons and even form new functional pathways. Through this process, you progress from the raw, unrefined movements of a novice to the powerful, precise movements of an expert.

Optimizing your motor cortex helps your muscles perform better in a number of ways.

When the movement is repeated over time on the surfskateboard, a long-term new functional pathways are created, allowing it to be performed without conscious effort on the surfskateboard or surfboard. Creating a high peak performance called Flow.
