Students from the Physiotherapy degree course at the Instituto Piaget de Silves, supervised by the teacher and researcher, Beatriz Minghelli, developed an activity to prescribe training for surfing athletes, in partnership with the surf school Play Surf, at Praia da Rocha in Portimão.

In designing this activity, the students researched and analysed scientific studies addressing the epidemiology of surfing injuries in the Portuguese population.

The prescription of exercise applied to sport must take into consideration the type of metabolism involved in the development of the activity, the movements most frequently performed, as well as the type, location and most frequent mechanism of injury. The metabolism is important to know what skills a certain sport requires.
