HOW TO STAND UP PADDLE BOARD

2021-10-09 10:11:48  Views:646

You’ve got the board, you’ve got the gear, and now you’re ready to - drumroll, please - take to the water. The first thing you’ll need to learn is how to launch your SUP.

 

LAUNCHING YOUR SUP

First, walk into the water while carrying your board by its center handle. When youre about knee-deep into the water, set the board on to the waters surface. Place your paddle across your board, then sit with your knees on the board.

 

Practice paddling on your knees until you feel fairly comfortable. When you feel like youre ready to try standing, its time to learn how to stand up!

 

 

HOW TO STAND ON THE BOARD FOR THE FIRST TIME

Ready to put the Stand Upin SUP? Heres how to do it: moving one foot at a time, place your feet in the place where your knees had been resting. Slowly rise up from a squat, with your heels flat, and slide your hands onto your paddle.

 

BALANCE TIPS

As soon as you stand up, make your first stroke with your paddle. This will help you build momentum and in turn, remain more steady. (Think of riding a bike: the more consistently you pedal, the more centered you feel.) If youre struggling to balance, focus on engaging your core. Stand with your feet parallel and hip-width apart. Keep your toes facing forward and your knees slightly bent.

 

CONSIDER YOUR BOARDS WIDTH

Wider boards can make it easier to balance, especially if youre a beginner. Opt for a board thats at least 31wide, if not even wider.
