Stand Up Paddle Boarding has become one of the latest big watersports, very popular with women as well as men. It makes for a great core workout!
Paddle Boarding can be done on the sea, lakes and rivers. Whitstable in Kent is a great location for learning to SUP because we are an estuary (so no big waves) also the tide goes out a long way making a very large and safe bay.
Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Boards are the most sort after SUPs as they pack down into a giant wheeled bag that everything can be fitted into - ready for storage and holidays!
The most popular Stand Up Paddle Board size is 10'6" x 32" and they come with the pump, paddle, leash and bag, infact everything you need to head straight out on to the water.
What to wear Paddle Boarding? In the summer all you will need is a UV Sun Shirt (50 UV protection) and a pair of boardies. But for when it gets more chilly then probably a wetsuit all of which can be advised and bought at Boardworx.
