Unlike its close cousin, surfing, you don’t need to catch the waves. In SUP you only need three things - a decent board, a trusty paddle and enough water. As you might guess the trick is to stand on the board and gently push yourself against the water. This might seem easy, and in fact, it truly is!
SUP gained popularity because of its fun and relaxing nature, accessible to everyone
People who never tried it are always amazed how fun and accessible it is. Of course it’s not without its challenges. Your first triumph will arrive when you stand up on the board for the first time. You will be tall and strong like a mountain, gently gliding over the soft water surface. Next, you will master the balance. As this is a water sport you will hit the water sooner or later. This happens to everyone and it’s never a big deal. If anything, it’s usually funny. You wear a leash so there is no risk that your board will drift away.
