Paddle surf boards for beginners

You look to the sea and suddenly you watch a person stand up on something like a surfboard with a paddle in the hands, yes he or she is doing paddle surf or how we call it "Stand Up Paddle" and you ask yourself "May I do that?" The answer is short and clear: yes. The SUP or paddle surf is an easy sport that people from early years to ancients can practice in different levels and with one common thing: enjoying the sea.

This sport is an outdoor activity with a lot of variants, because we can practice a lot of modalities that we can resume in the following four:
  • Paddle surf tours or touring is when you paddling through the coast line for a long distance on a paddle surf board, with only one goal: enjoy the tour, discovering places where it is difficult to access from the land and now you can visit with your paddle board, or just visit a beach from the sea to change the sightview.

  • Catch waves and surf with your paddle, it is the real paddle surf and it is like the traditional surfing but now you are always stand up on the board and you must paddle faster to ride the wave when it is coming. One of the better things of SUP surfing is that you can catch more waves than before because the board is bigger than a regular surfboard and you can get the speed to take the wave with the paddle. The feeling will be amazing.

  • SUP Fitness, the paddle surf is a complete sport but for fitness lovers it is a nice option because you can do your fitness routine on the board. Paddle boards are bigger than surfboards and they are very estable, so it is a good platform to make your exercises on it. Live the dawn on the board while you practice pilates or have a yoga session at the sunset to feel the connection with the environment and be relaxed. Oohhhm!!

  • WindSUP, to practice windsurfing and use your SUP board on windy days, some of the boards come with mastfoot insert and there is also a system to set a rig on any paddle board althugh it hasn't mastfoot insert. Now you can enjoy every beach day with or without wind an only one board.

Also there are more modes of paddle surf or SUP: SUP Race, SUP Fishing, SUP Polo, o SUP Team on XL boards for 4 to 8 persons together. No matter the one that you choose, just enjoy the experience and live a funny time on a paddle board.
