Title: Stand Up Paddle Board 101

  • The first trick to learning a new sport is
    putting yourself in the right mindset. Brace for
    the inevitable falls and get ready for the hard
    work it will take to master the technique of
    stand up paddle boarding. Take setbacks in stride
    and youll soon amaze everyone, including
    yourself.

3
  • Equipment can make or break your first SUP trip.
    Here are a few tips for choosing wisely
  • Larger stand up paddle boards tend to be better
    for beginners theyre easier to balance on.
  • When choosing a board, consult an expert and test
    the board in the water first.
  • As a general rule of thumb, the paddle should be
    anywhere between 6 to 10 inches taller than you.

4
  • Youll also want to get the right gear for your
    body. That means bathing suits and sunscreen in
    summer and wetsuits in winter. It also means
    wearing a personal flotation device. A floaty is
    required by the U.S. Coast Guard for anyone
    traveling on a vessel (yes, that even includes
    paddleboards!).

5
  • A calm, clear day is a beginners best friend.
    Rough surf is a novices worst enemy. If you want
    to make your first trip a successful one, avoid
    challenging conditions. Even when the surf is
    manageable, spend some time kneeling before
    standing up. That should help you balance.

6
  • Never stand with straight legs. Your knees should
    be slightly bent. Think of a skiers stance and
    youll get the picture. Also, dont look down at
    the ripples in the water. Keep your head up and
    your gaze on the horizon in order to maintain
    that all-important balance.

7
  • If you fall, and you will, be sure to propel
    yourself and fall away from the board rather than
    on top of it. A SUP board is hard. It makes for
    an unpleasant impact. Your chances of injury are
    lower if you aim for the water instead.

8
  • Many beginners use only their arms when paddling
    and balancing. Thats a mistake. The trick is
    harnessing the power of the core muscles, which
    are superior to the arm muscles in terms of both
    size and strength. Keep that key center area
    engaged and youll stand a far better chance of
    making it through the day.

9
  • Theres a reason stand up paddle boarding is the
    single fastest growing watersport in the world.
    Its fun. Its exciting. Its scenic, and it
    provides an awesome, full-body workout. If youre
    not enjoying every moment of it, youre probably
    not doing it right.
