Red Paddle Co - Inflatable Stand Up Paddleboards (SUP)
Stand up paddleboarding (SUPing) is currently the fastest growing watersport in the world. We look at why the sport is taking off so rapidly in the UK and worldwide and why this is such a great accessory for your boat!
You can paddleboard pretty much anywhere there is water! So wherever you drop anchor be that on a river, estuary, in a coastal bay or harbour, there’s a good chance that you will be able to get out paddleboarding and explore places you previously would not be able to reach.
You don’t need lots of equipment. In fact all you need to get you started is a paddleboard, a paddle and a leash.
Learning the basics is quick and easy, allowing you to be up and paddling in no time. So don’t think you haven’t got the spare time, or patience, or have left it too late in life… it’s never too late to learn to paddleboard!! Whatever your age, gender or previous watersport experience, you should give it a try.
Paddleboarding is such a versatile sport that there’s something for everyone. Whatever your particular interest it’s more than likely you’ll be able to do it on a paddleboard. Whether you want to go flat water cruising, get fit, go fishing, have fun with the family, surf, go on wild downwinders or explore your nearby coastline you can do it all on a paddleboard so you’ll never get bored.
Paddleboarding can be a full body workout, as it doesn’t just focus on your arms and upper body as many people think. With the correct paddling technique you can engage your core muscles in every stroke, aiding core stability and improving balance and strength. If you paddle hard then it can be a great cardio workout too. A low impact, holistic workout, to get fit or stay in shape.
It’s not only fun but can be sociable too! It’s a great activity for the whole family to enjoy, and to do with friends. You can even take your child or dog out for a paddle by putting them on the front!
You’ll see more from a sup! Standing on a paddleboard gives you a whole new perspective of the land and sea. In fact you’ll almost feel like you’re walking on water. Stand up paddleboarding allows you to not only have a great view across the water and land, but also whats going on underneath the water. This a great feeling and also very useful for those wanting to have a clear view of the fish below without disturbing them, like fishermen. Because you are so quiet paddleboarding you are likely to be able to get up close and personal with nature and see more wildlife.
