You’ve probably seen the sport on TV or even on a visit to Hawaii. Riders stand on a large surfboard and maneuver with a long, lightweight, single-blade paddle. Sometimes there’s a dog or Small Child on the front of the board, and always there’s a smile on the rider’s face.
CRUISING - Lakes, rivers, streams, oceans.
SURFING - Waves 4 feet or smaller.
PLAYING - Kids love jumping on and off the boards.
What else is Paddle Boarding good for?
A Surfing Alternative - The waves aren't always adequate for surfing, when you're craving the ocean you can still get wet with a SUP. This sport is also a very good alternative for people who have difficulty or fear of surfing.
Yoga - Performing yoga on a paddleboard adds an extra dimension of balance. This can be a lot of fun as well as very challenging for someone who is already an experienced practitioner of yoga. In addition, the ambiance associated with paddleboarding is far more pleasant and relaxing than being in a cramped gym or fitness studio.
Fitness & Health - SUP uses almost all the muscles in the body, especially your core and legs. It is a form of simultaneous aerobic and strength training. The cardiovascular benefits are also amazing which translates into many benefits for your body, including a decreased incidence of heart attack and stroke. In addition, you are going to burn a lot of calories.
First timers hoping to try standup paddle boarding should be in moderately good shape. Though it’s common for riders to paddle with a dog on the front of the board, it’s wise to get your feet wet first and make sure you can balance before you add a wriggling dog to the mix.
