SUP is currently the fastest growing watersport in the world. But what is it that makes this sport so popular,
and what is a SUP?
You don’t need lots of equipment. In fact, all you need to get you started is a paddleboard, a paddle and a leash.
Stand up paddle boarding is such a versatile sport that there’s something for everyone. And although it may look like a big surfboard its use is not just for catching waves. They are great for everything from flat water cruising, getting fit, and have fun with the family.
It’s quick and easy to learn the basic paddle boarding skill, allowing you to be up and paddling in no time. So don’t think you have left it too late in life… it’s never too late to learn to sup!! Whatever your age, gender or previous watersport experience, you should give it a try.
Stand up paddle boarding can be a full body workout; it doesn’t just focus on your arms and upper body as many people think. With the correct paddling technique you can engage your core muscles in every stroke, aiding core stability and improving balance and strength. If you paddle hard then it can be a great cardio workout too. A low impact, holistic workout, which beats the gym hands down.
