Stand up Paddle Boarding is a kind of surfing originating with Hawaiian surf teachers who wished to get a much better view of the students as they surfed in the 60s. This water sport that is excellent is experiencing a boom in popularity, finding its way into surfing and non-surfing communities around earth.
Shortly, SUP Boarding may even surpass conventional surfing. That is because this up and coming water sport may be appreciated offering a more comprehensive and much more consistent experience over conventional surfing to both.
All surfers should put in a Stand Up Board to their wave- there are three good reasons why and riding armory: work out, versatility and visibility.
In conventional surfing, the surfer starts his ride lying on the board, which gives him a poor vantage point while tracking the wave that is oncoming. He should also look back over his shoulder that may actually be a pain in the neck, quite literally!
A stand up Paddler is definitely in a standing posture. This provides an exceptional vantage point to her when sizing up an oncoming wave. The knees-bent standing posture also enables her whole body to rotate still the stress on her neck.
One other neat thing about Stand up Paddle Boarding is the fact that it may be appreciated regardless of wave states. The truth is, waves are not even required you like so you can paddle!
It’s possible for you to love SUP Boarding including harbors, bays, rivers, inland lakes, reservoirs and ponds on any body of water. I’ve even seen pictures of men and women Paddle Boarding in swampy places!
