To celebrate the release of the new Beach Boys biopic, Love And Mercy, we've enlisted O'Neill professional longboarder Ben Skinner to show you some moves you can do in the gym to improve your surfing, and chisel a beach-ready set of abs.

He's also come up with a bonus warm-up you can do on the beach just before you get in the water to give you enough mobility to pull big top turns without pulling any muscles.
 
Love And Mercy is out in cinemas nationwide on July 10th.
