Paddleboarding or also known as Stand Up Paddlboarding (SUP). A combination of kayaking and surfing, this water activity is fundamentally standing on a surfboard and using a paddle to propel themselves through the water. Stand Up Paddleboards are longer, wider and more buoyant that traditional surfboards, which enables you to comfortably balance on them.
Stand up paddleboarding is relatively easy for anyone to do, not only does it have excellent health benefits it is also extremely fun. SUPing can be enjoyed by the whole family, so why not discover for yourself the wonderful feeling of being upright on a board and relish the environment at Liquid Leisure!
Getting out on a paddleboard frequently, the health benefits are tremendous! You can improve your overall fitness and increase your core strength.
It’s the perfect family activity, so give it a try, and you’ll notice how much better and stronger you feel.
Improves balance: Stand up paddleboarding requires you to stand upright on the board, which requires a lot of core stability and leg strength to maintain balance. This not only helps you have a good balance while paddleboarding but increases your focus and balance in day-to-day activities, as well.
Full body workout: Almost every muscle in the body is used at some point during paddleboarding. Because of the balance required, leg muscles will be hard at work attempting to stabilise your centre of gravity, while the arms, back and shoulders are used to propel the paddleboard in the water. The core, back and abdominal muscles are constantly at work to maintain your balance.
Low impact: Stand up paddleboarding is a very low impact exercise. Therefore, it is unlikely that you will do damage to the tendons and ligaments of your joints. Paddle boarding is particularly useful for runners that are experiencing shin splints or knee and hip pain, yet still need a good exercise to do while healing.
Reduces stress: Water naturally soothes the body and exercise helps to reduce stress. Add to all of that the soothing sounds as you glide through the water, the sensation of actually walking on water, and the rhythm of your stroke, and the stress you feel starts to loosen its grip on you and melts away.
Overall increased strength: After spending a day out on a paddleboard, it’s natural to feel a little sore all over your body. But soreness is a good thing because that means you are building up your overall body strength.
Cardio workout: If you spend enough time out on the water paddleboarding, you can get a good cardio workout. You can also race your friends while paddling to make it a bit more motivating and challenging, which is a good way to get the heart rate up.
Useful in rehabilitation injuries: Because of its low impact nature, paddle boarding can be a useful tool for people in rehab to gently increase strength without doing any harm. It is very gentle on your muscles and joints.
Improves endurance: Once you learn how to stand up paddleboard, you begin to master it with increasing endurance of the constant paddling. Once you notice that your balance is improving and your muscles aren’t getting quite as tired, then you know your endurance is increasing.
Better cardiovascular health: Paddleboarding is similar to running, aerobics, or even cross-training, you’ll have improved cardiovascular health and less risk for related diseases.
Allows you to connect with nature: Being out on the water is calming, and engaging with nature can have a positive effect on your mental health and attitude. In addition, getting some extra vitamin D from the sun is good for you!
STAND UP PADDLEBAORD SAFETY RULES
Paddleboarding is a relatively safe activity, though as with any water sport activity, there are a few things to watch out for and we’re here to help to ensure your safety and enjoyment. Please understand the SUP Safety Rules:
NEVER remove your buoyancy vest or helmet during your session.
Make sure it fits comfortably and all straps are fastened securely.
NEVER jump off the launch dock.
Kneel on the paddleboard and paddle away from the dock before standing.
NEVER remove the safety leash when on the water.
This is to connect you to your paddleboard if you fall off and prevent the runaway board from hitting someone else.
NEVER leave your board.
It is much easier for rescuers to find the board than a person swimming in the water. The board is also your flotation device.
ALWAYS lay on the board and paddle back to shore using your hand in a strong wind.
This is to reduce falling and conserve energy.
ALWAYS swim to the board first if you fall off.
Then paddle the board with your hands back to pick up the paddle. Paddles wont drift too far, but your board will.
ALWAYS head upwind before you go downwind.
It will be easier to get back to the launch dock.
ALWAYS wear sunscreen.
You will be spending most of your experience above the water and open to the elements.
