Golden Rules Of Stand Up Paddling

When learning how to Paddle your SUP there are a few thing you need to keep in mind.

The Golden Rules of Stand Up Paddling:

  1. Plant your blade fully in the water before you start to pull.
  2. Always assume the ready position when paddling. Feet shoulder width apart, Knees bent and back strait. 
  3. Use your core muscles to paddle. When paddling correctly you will should be using the muscles in you legs, core and arms. 
  4. Keep you board steady - It helps to keep your muscles in you feet and legs engaged.
  5. Most of all HAVE FUN!
