Stand Up Paddle boarding (SUP) is a sport that everyone can enjoy, regardless of your age, ability or size.  The perfect whole body and core workout, SUP or “walking on water” is the most peaceful way to get out and experience nature while you’re exercising.  It improves balance and co-ordination, strength and endurance, is stress-reducing, invigorating, and invites adventure and exploration…   

SUP has already morphed into three sub-disciplines, each having it’s own distinctive paddle and board design.  But perhaps the most fulfilling is the one that inspires serenity.  Distant but still close to land; absorbed in how the waves work with the board and the board with the waves; utterly lost in one’s thoughts.  Brief moments like these are… well… you know, priceless.  

Whether you’re surfing 15ft waves or gliding on glassy lakes, SUP leaves you feeling balanced, energized, and stoked to be alive.  You train your entire body; core, legs, arms, back, and brain, plus SUP is low impact and therefore good for your joints.  It improves your core stability, prevents pain and promotes good posture.  Say goodbye to your love handles: SUP tones, shapes and builds muscle, burns fat and gives you a fantastic shape faster than anything.

Not just for fitness, SUP also has a meditative, calming effect.  The sound of the water rippling under you board or the waves crashing around you, the rhythm of the paddle stroke… you are totally immersed in the present, focused, calm.  You feel humbled by your insignificance in relation to the ocean.  Aware of the wind and the rain, the temperature, the currents, and the sun on your face, you are at one with the planet.

Feel the balance of nature
