Interplay of 3 Energy Systems
The interplay of the 3 energy systems when paticipating in the 200 metre sprint
The interplay of the 3 energy systems when participating in water polo
The interplay of the 3 energy systems when participating in surfing
Surfing uses all three energy sytems, but depends which one is dominent when it comes to which part of the activity you are doing. Surfing has many stages to the activity. When you are just standing out on the sand watching and waiting for a wave you would be using the aerobic system, this being because the intensity isnt high. However when you locate a wave and you start sprinting out towards it you change to ATP-PC system because its high intensity and it lasts up to 8 seconds and usually the sprint isnt to far before you get into the water. Then when you get into the water and you are paddling to the wave you would be using the anaerobic glycolysis system because you need a high intensity and it needs to last for more then 8 seconds, so you wouldnt use the ATP-PC system. When you are just resting on your board waiting for a wave you would be using the aerobic system because that doesnt require that much intensity and you can do this for a long period of time.
