Paddleboarding is a sport that is perfect for anyone who loves the water and loves a workout, so it’s pretty much a sport for just about everyone. All it takes is a board and paddle, so it’s not going to cost you an arm and a leg to try and you’ll be able to experience a fantastic water sport.
The diversity offered in Paddleboarding is due to the fact it can be performed while laying down, kneeling or even standing up on the board. While it may seem that the standing up position is for more advanced paddle boarders, it really doesn’t take too long to get used to it and gain proper balance. It is a great form of transportation along canals and waterways and quite popular in places like Hawaii, California and Florida.
Paddleboarding may have started out as a way for people to get from one island to another, but it has now grown into much more than that. You can enjoy a nice day out on the water while simultaneously getting a great workout, enjoying the slower pace and beauty of your surroundings, or you can even enter a race with other paddleboarders.
Next time you know you’re going to be near any body of water, definitely give paddleboarding a shot because chances are you will fall in love with it just as many others have.
