The secret to better bone health for middle-aged and older men could be as simple as getting out in the waves for a morning surf.

New research conducted by Bond University Ph.D. graduate and teaching fellow Vini Simas reveals the pressures placed on the body through surfing have the potential to improve bone density and strength for men aged between 50 and 75.

“We already know that surfing has a broad range of physiological, cardiovascular and muscle health benefits, as well as improving co-ordination and balance, and now we have evidence suggesting it is potentially good for bones as well,” Simas said.
