Training - that's a good place to start. Kris Freeman: Pro.

Supposedly Great White Sharks feed on incoming salmon in this inlet. Locals say you can see them if you are lucky. We are surfing up the coast about 10miles.
We are here on the Oregon coast after our Bend Camp. This day we did intervals up this here hill (4 to 5 x 4 to 5 minutes level 4). In the afternoon we lifted weight. We also hit the surf and will play bocce ball on the beach tonight. We're here to help solidify the team dynamics work we did in Bend. We skied a lot, trained a lot and worked hard on team cohesion in Bend now we're bringing it down a notch before heading home.
Are you pro?
