Is it a face? Both of them have their cheeks swollen.

You also noticed. Yes, both Nathan Hedge and Connor Coffin have swelling cheeks. Both are off-the-lip and it’s time to turn the surfboard.

Why do they do this?

I know a player who does the same in other competitions.
It’s MLB player Shohei Ohtani.

I have also seen Otani swell their cheeks when batting.

Shohei Ohtani also swells his cheeks when batting

Youtube Ohtani hits his 32nd homer of the season!

I googled why Shohei Ohtani swell their cheeks.
There were some opinions, so I summarized them.

・ They swell their cheeks to hold their breath. They store air not only on their cheeks but also on their chests. By holding their breath, they fix the center of their body and strengthen their muscles.

・They exhale as they swing the bat. When swinging the bat, the body moves a lot. The body moves more smoothly while exhaling.

Others said it was just a habit.

But I believe it makes sense for them to swell their cheeks.

They hold their breath when they put pressure on their muscles. They exhale when they move a lot.

Baseball and surfing are the same in that you twist your upper body and put it back.
The swing of the bat and the twist of the off-the-lip body are similar.

That’s a pretty interesting opinion.

I will try to imitate them when I do off-the-lip. It may lead to improvement.
