Helps Reduce Stress - SUP can be a great stress reliever. Having the water around you and focusing your actions, it's a great way to focus on the moment. Breathing in the salt air and being on the water can help you relax and leave your worries behind.
Works your whole body - SUP requires the entire body to move the board. While paddling, you're working your back muscles, core, arms, shoulders, legs and torso, giving you a full body workout. .
Keeps you balanced - As you try to stabilize yourself on the board, your body works hard to help maintain your balance. SUP requires a lot of balance to stand up on the board so you're working both your core and legs.
Great for losing weight - Not only is it a fun activity, studies have shown that SUP can help lower your body fat.
Low-impact workout- SUP is often considered a low-impact workout in that it can’t do serious damage to your ligaments or tendons. It could also be beneficial to those who experience knee or hip pain as SUP may help you increase your strength and help you recover from injuries without putting too much strain on your body.
