The glutes are our biggest “driving” muscle throughout the posterior chain. This is why it’s really important to keep them activated and grow these muscles, especially if you want to get some drive through your back leg when surfing.
Often, people who experience lower back pain will also have tight glutes. If you have stiff hips, it can be attributed to tight glutes as well as hip flexors. So here is an entire range of stretches that can help keep those glutes fresh thanks to our good friend Elise Carver, aka @littlebantamsurftrainer.
