Real novice surfer, caught the bug last summer, but landlocked in London UK most of the time. In what ways can I train to make myself fitter for the times when I do actually get to the waves? Basically I'm looking for methods by which to become a better surfer without actually surfing.

The next time I'll be able to be at a beach with a surf board is mid March. What can I do between now and then to maximise my time and make it a better experience when I get there? I'm open to as detailed suggestions as you have (I've read yoga is good, any surfers out there who can corroborate this? Any specific moves in yoga?). I'm coming from the place of a previously fit woman who over the last couple of years has done little to no exercise.
So I guess I want the tools to both a) get better surfing skills and b) get fitter.
Thanks for any advice you can give me
