Do you wonder how it feels to walk on water? Then rent a SUP! To paddle on a SUP involves standing on a large surfboard, cruising forwards with the help of a paddle. You will feel the water softly touching the sole of your feet, creating the illusion of you smoothly walking on the water.
Some decides to make the SUP tour into a peaceful and relaxing time while others make it into a real workout. Did you know you can also do yoga on a SUP? Check on our website for vacant spots on the summers upcoming courses!
When you first start paddling it may be best to start of on your knees, since a lower center of gravity increases the stability. After a while you can try standing up with a wide stance. When you paddle forwards a couple of strokes on each side makes the SUP go straight. The most important thing to remember while you paddle is to activate your upper body and core, instead of just using the arms.
As with all watersports is it important to be aware of your surroundings while you paddle SUP. Make sure you are always watching out for others who are on the water, for example boats and kayaks. If it is quite windy you should always try to stay close to land, and as a general rule of thumb try to never paddle SUP alone.
