Why SUP? There are many ways to get out and enjoy the water so why is it that Stand Up Paddle Boarding is the fastest growing water sport in the nation? The answer lies in the versatility. SUP provides alternative fitness, multidimensional uses, eco-friendliness, a social characteristic, and ANYONE can do it. The number one reason why Stand Up is taking the country by storm is that anyone can join in on the fun. The common objection goes something like this: oh, there is no way I can stand on the board it will be too unstable. This is far from the truth; the fact is there are boards made for every shape and size. Kids from 5-85 with no athletic background or water experience can get out on the board and stand up on their first try! We recommend you go out and find a local SUP lessons company and give it a try before you buy. A good SUP lessons company will match you with a board to suit your experience and comfort level. After your first time on the board you will notice how quickly you feel comfortable and be surprised to find out that you are burning an enormous amount of calories. The hidden fitness aspect is becoming one of the largest drivers of the SUP Revolution. Stand Up Paddleboarding engages your entire body in a seemly effortless manner with a simple cruise along your favorite shore. The average calorie burn from a 75-90 minute cruise comes in around 600 (tested age: 58). Not only does paddling burn an incredible amount of calories, but it also contributes to toning your core, arms, shoulders, back, and legs with every stroke. Combine this with SUPs non-impact nature and individuals with knee, back, and ankle problems have found a new way to stay fit. The added benefit of improved balance is just another ace in the deck. Some companies offer Paddleboard Fitness classes, which treat the board as the floating fitness mat. Incorporating bands, body weight exercises, and the boards resistance this becomes a work out like no other. This versatility on the board for fitness also transfers to its overall use on the water. SUPs versatility stems from the many places in which it can be used and the ability to sit or stand. You can paddle your local lakes, river, and oceans and even learn how to SUP surf all on one board. This versatility allows for great flexibility within a family. SUPs also can be ridden standing up, on the knees, Kris Cross applesauce, or prone (laying down). Currently people are beginning to embrace a conscious effort to reduce the harm to our planet. Stand Up Paddleboarding is a non-destructive activity that reduces fossil fuel usage; SUP unlike boating and its related activities does not contribute to lake, river, and ocean pollution. While the SUP manufacturing process is still far from pure, steps are being made everyday to develop greener production. The last reason and one of this writers personal favorites is the social aspect. Stand Up Paddleboarding creates minimal noise (more soothing than anything) thus allowing groups to talk and get to know one another while paddling. This makes for a great fitness and social activity as well as a clever date night (guys are you listening). So get outside, grab a board, find your favorite waterway, and join the SUP revolution!
