Ask most any surfer on Tour and they'll tell you the best training for surfing is simply to surf as much as possible. Sure, kettle bells, balance balls and having a trainer make a difference, but when it comes to keeping the tools sharp in the water, there's no other substitute for riding waves.

Just ask World Champ Italo Ferreira, who's been doing some serious work at home in Brasil lately. Over the course of the past week he's posted a string of edits on Instagram that could easily steal the show in any big-time surf movie production. The power, the speed, the amplitude of his airs, the man seems to just keep getting better and better. If Italo was hot last year during his Title run, he's quite literally taken his game to the next level...just check out the clips below for all the proof you need.
