I don't know how many of you have had much surfing experience.
Being held underwater on a big wave or two and tumbled around like your in a washing machine after an adrenalin pumping wipeout makes it really difficult to hold your breath for any length of time.

So I would be grateful if anyone had any suggestions for me on how to hold my breath longer, and/or techniques to reduce heart rate etc.. in these sort of situations.
