Tips for Standing Up on a Paddleboard

Standing on a paddleboard can be challenging, especially if you're a beginner. Here are some tips to help you get started:

  1. Start on your knees: Begin by kneeling on the board with your hands on the sides.
  2. Slowly stand up: Place one foot at a time on the board and slowly stand up, keeping your knees slightly bent and your feet shoulder-width apart.
  3. Find your balance: Keep your core engaged and your gaze fixed on the horizon to help you find your balance.
  4. Paddle with purpose: Use a smooth, purposeful stroke to move through the water, and remember to switch sides every few strokes.
  5. Practice, practice, practice: The more you practice standing up on a paddleboard, the easier it will become. So, don't be afraid to get out on the water and give it your all!
