Paddle boarding has become increasingly popular in the last few years and is now more accessible than ever before. Once you have the hang of it, it’s an easy sport to enjoy alone or as a whole family. You can get as involved as you like. From a simple paddle down on the local waterway to taking part in a paddle boarding race, there is something for all abilities. We share our how to paddle board guides to enhance your experience.
Starting at the beginning
We love paddle boarding for the fitness element. As keen fitness enthusiasts, it’s a less exhausting pursuit than our main hobby – running. it gives us a great core workout as well as a great way to cross train while giving our feet a rest from the pavement or trail pounding. We weren’t always OK at paddle boarding though (notice we said OK and not great). Like everyone we had to start somewhere. We learnt a lot along the way though about where to paddle and where not to, how to inflate our boards for maximum effect, how to stand up on the thing (I still have a running friend that struggles after many attempts) and how to choose the best spots for paddling safely.
Getting the most out of paddle boarding
So, we thought we would share our love of this leisurely pursuit with those that may be considering getting involved in the sport and those that would like to take it further. Our how to paddle board guides are designed to talk you through the basics of paddle boarding and how to get the most out of your time on the water. We will even talk you through how to fall off your board (safely).
