Stand Up Paddleboarding is the world’s fastest-growing water sport, and has gained immense popularity in the past 2 years. Why? Paddle boarding is a fun way to be close to nature with the added benefits of a full-body workout, meditation and also socialization. SUP is a low-impact sport and with wide board versatility, makes it a good sport for everyone to enjoy, no matter your skill level, where you are or what type of paddleboarding you’d like to do.
For your first time out, we recommend you begin by taking a SUP lesson or renting a beginner paddle board at a local Starboard center, or simply borrow a stable paddle board from a friend. After the first session or two, once you’ve got the hang of paddle boarding, let’s consider buying your own. There are many types of SUP boards, each type will determine performance and discipline.
