These days, due to the popularity of the sport of Standup Paddleboarding, it seems like you’ll see a SUP on just about any lake, bay, river, and calm body of water. You will see them everywhere, because SUP is a lot of fun and a great sport. You see them on all oceans. In recent years, you can also travel to inland areas of most countries where there are lakes and water and you will see more and more people of all ages riding them. Most families who have become active in the sport of horseback riding have more than one SUP in their garage or on their car’s surf rack as they make their way to the water on the closer.
Surfboards require waves to enjoy standing surf. With SUPs, you don’t need waves to have a good outing. All you need is a smooth body of water and a paddle specially designed and adapted to your size allowing you to stand up paddle boarding on these large boards. They are big boards. But they’re light enough for most people to carry, and they have carrying handles or straps to make things easier.
This new sport allows you to get together with your friends, social groups, clubs or just yourself and spend free time on the water, sightseeing, cruising and enjoying the fresh air. and the sun.
While you paddle, you exercise and have special moments alone or with your friends in a very healthy atmosphere. Many of those who do SUP use it for physical training. It is especially good for training the core, legs and shoulders. An hour of regular paddling will exhaust you and give you a great workout. While you are exercising or paddling, it will brighten your mind and keep your blood flowing for a good cardiovascular workout.
All you need to do is get yourself a board and paddle that is right for you so that you have a smooth and stable ride. The correct sizing of your SUP and paddle is very important. It might also be a good idea for you to take a lesson or two from your local surf shop or water sports facility. The experts in the store and your instructor will make sure you make the right choices.
SUP prices range from $ 450 to $ 2000. They come in different types and models. There are hard and soft SUPs for beginners, intermediate and professional SUPs. After taking your lesson, chatting with the SUP instructor or the store owner, you will be able to make a good decision based on your own physical condition, height and level of experience. Your desire and motivation will likely determine how much you decide to invest in your new SUP.
So my friends, get in on the flow and try this fantastic new sport.
