Learn the Unique Benefits of Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP)

What’s a fun activity you can do that involves balance, strength, and makes you feel like you’re walking on water? Stand up paddle boarding (SUP)! This is a fun and challenging water sport you should try. Once you get the hang of it, it’s a relaxing pastime and a great workout.

SUP evolved from surfing, which makes sense, because it’s done on a surfboard. However, instead of catching waves, the goal is to remain standing on the board while propelling yourself forward with a paddle. This requires calmer waters, though you can try it in choppy conditions for a tougher challenge. 

The Health Benefits of Stand Up Paddle Boarding

ACTIVITIES_WATER_Stand-Up-PaddleboardingWater sports in Colorado Springs like SUP, give you a great total body workout. In order to stay upright and standing on your board, you have to utilize most of your muscles, including your legs, core, and back. Meanwhile, your arm muscles will be working to move you forward with the paddle.

Another benefit of the sport is that it’s a low-impact workout that eases stress. As you get the feel for gliding across the water, you’ll soak up the serenity of nature.
