"SurfSET Fitness is a new company that allows people to work out like surfers. CEO and founder Mike Hartwick developed the Rip Surfer X - a one-person machine that can be part of gym workouts - as a way to exercise while he was away from the waves.
The company is rolling out demonstrations ahead of what it hopes will be a distribution of machines and programs to gyms throughout the country.
The first classes were held at the Boston Athletic Club in South Boston this weekend."
