Stand-up Paddle Boarding (SUP) is a great way to enjoy a relaxing, leisurely cruise on the water. Paddle boarding originated as an ancient Hawaiian sport and has really taken off as a common sport in the last 10 years.
Stand up paddle boarding works your core, improves our cardio fitness, and challenges your balance and flexibility. Because there’s virtually no impact, people will choose this sport over something that’s harder on your body, like running.
It doesn’t matter your age or fitness level – anyone can try paddle boarding. This workout can help improve your overall fitness level no matter where you start. It’s easy to grasp and get the hang of, which makes stand up paddle boarding a great workout for anyone. This water sport also helps to relieve stress. It’s a great group activity as well. People are even practicing their yoga moves on a stand-up paddle board!
