STAND UP PADDLE BOARD

Years ago Hawaiian surf instructors started using a paddle to propel themselves whilst standing up on surfboard. This was done to keep an eye on their surfing pupils and spot incoming waves. Surfers like Laird Hamilton and Brian Keaulana then started using stand up paddling ascross training to increase their stamina, balance, and strength.

Stand up paddling is a very easy activity and everyone gets the hang of it quickly. Using a long canoe style paddle to provide the power and some steering, the board creates a platform to stand upright and move with ease.

Stand up is a whole body workout that is focused from the core out; so your abs, legs, and back get to feel the benefits, as do all the smaller balance muscles in your knees, ankles and even toes. Naturally your arms and shoulders are getting a great workout from the paddling, but it's the core muscles that seem to really show the earliest benefits, trimming inches from the waistline or even creating those coveted 'six pack' abs. It's the new cool way to get in shape and look like a surfer.
