Stand up paddleboarding has become hugely popular. So many people are attracted to this sport, and it’s easy to understand why. There are too many benefits to list – but for starters:
It’s an unbelievable workout. SUP paddling will give you an incredible total body and cardiovascular workout.
It’s safe and easy to learn. You just need to get your balance squared away, understand a little about weight distribution and stance, figure out which way to hold the paddle, and you’re pretty much good to go.
Building on that last point, it’s great for family and guests. If you own a paddleboard, chances are your family members and summer guests will want to try it out. They’ll probably get hooked too.
It gives you an unparalleled vantage point on the water. There is no other water sport that lets you stand on while going at your own pace, exploring new areas and just appreciating your surroundings like SUP.
There are more benefits, but chances are you’ll find your own reason for falling in love with SUP. It’s not just a fad (please ignore the naysayers.. they’re just jealous). The sport of stand up paddleboarding has been around for decades.
And SUPs have played a huge part of a rich cultural history in Hawaii. It’s only been recently that SUP has reached Calgary, and it is certainly popular!!
