This water sport is quickly gaining in popularity as more and more people discover how much fun they can have paddling around on the water’s surface. A stand up paddle board looks very similar to an oversized surfboard, but unlike surfing, no waves are needed to move through the water. Instead, the user manipulates a long fiberglass paddle to propel the board through the water. The board is a little less than 10 feet long, is made of high-density polyethylene and has a fin on the bottom to provide stability and help with navigation.
In addition to the fun factor, using a paddle board is a great way work out because it requires using the stomach muscles to balance, which offers effective core conditioning. Because paddle boarding is a low impact activity, there is little risk of damaging tendons and ligaments.
Paddle boarding is suitable for people of all ages making it the perfect activity for families looking for a recreational sport that everyone can enjoy.
