Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP)
Growing by force, Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is one of the fastest growing water sports to this day. It is a fun and relatively easy way to explore bodies of water and enjoy the surrounding scenery. While standing at full height on the board, one can enjoy amazing mountain or horizon views and perhaps have a chance to catch a glimpse of a few water creatures. With little equipment one can cruise open calm waters, float down rivers or even surf the waves.
Paddleboarding offers the opportunity for people of different ages and physical abilities to enjoy this water sport. One can take a slow relaxing ride with an SUP board while others look for speed to race friends. This sport is fun and relaxing while still offering a full body workout.
When having a great time on the water with a Stand Up Paddleboard it is important to always have a Personal Flotation Device (PDF) for your safety. Lastly always wear a dry-suit or wetsuit when paddling in cold water.
Fortunately, SUP boards are lighter than a Kayak, with no moving parts and easy to store. As a result, Stand Up Paddleboarding is a great way to either introduce water-sports into your life or further enrich your water-sport experience while enjoying the nature that surrounds you.
